To provide gist and detailed reading practice using a text about public demonstrations in the context of world events
To provide clarification of vocabulary concerning demonstrations in the context of civil affairs and world events.
Procedure (35-47 minutes)
The teacher will show a clipart picture of a demonstration and utilize MFP. The teacher will write the word, "demonstrations," on the WB. Ss will elicit vocabulary from the word and tell the class what it means to them.
Ss will utilize GW and be given a HO with pictures of the vocabulary. Ss will have to match vocabulary photos with the vocabulary word on the WB. The teacher will clarify vocabulary misconceptions after the exercise. This vocabulary will be reviewed at a later time in the LP.
Ss will be challenged with questions concerning demonstrations utilizing the HO. Ss will be working in pairs to answer HO questions and participate in WC discussion concerning the topic. Exercise 1
Ss will match news article titles with the articles they belong utilizing PW. Ss will read articles for gist and select a title, while becoming familiar with collocations, e.g. "anti-war demonstration." WC review to follow. Exercise 2
Ss will read all 5 news articles in order to find specific words to match the definitions given. This activity will also serve as a vocabulary review for Ss. Because this activity is a review I would prefer Ss to work alone. WC review will follow. Exercise 4
Ss will view the well-known, "Woman in Red Dress," photo taken at Taksim Square. My goal is for the class to participate in freer speaking about the topic without teacher hindrance.
