Scan a text to answer specific questions about festivals
To use festival-related vocabulary in a discussion where Ss discuss about Turkish weddings
To use festival-related vocabulary from the text to complete a summary
Procedure (50-8 minutes)
I will start the lesson by showing Ss pictures about famous global festivals. I will try to get the main topic "Festival" from the Ss but if they don't get it I will elicit it. I will divide the Ss into groups of three for a discussion and after this they will come to the WB and write down the words they came up with.
Ss will answer to 6 different questions from the course book and they can choose the festival they want to write the answers about. It can be one of the festivals mentioned in the warm up or a different one that they have attended. Ss will do this activity individually but they will check the answers in pairs so that there will be STT.
Ss will read the text "Las Fallas" from the course book and they don't need to know every word in the text since it's a scanning activity.
Ss will answers to the questions again but this time they will work in pairs.
Ss will do the activity 1 from the course book where they will fill the gaps with words from a list. Ss will check the correct answers in pairs.
Ss will be divided into groups of 4 and they will discuss about a wedding they have attended. After this Ss will choose one SS to come in the front of the class to tell about the experience. We should hear at least 4 different stories about weddings.
Ss will be divided into 2 groups where they will explain festival-related words to their group without saying the actual word. This activity is the game called taboo but without calculating the points. Each Ss will try to explain one word. This activity will only take place if we have time left.
