TP 8 - Writing
Pre-Intermediate level


In this lesson, students will synthesize the information they've been learning all along, and use this new knowledge to put together a brochure!


Abc Long Beach Brochure

Main Aims

  • Introduce and provide practice of writing a short leaflet to promote a place they like

Subsidiary Aims

  • Use the power of connotative meanings to express their opinions in writing.


Warmer/Lead-in (5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T nominates 1-2 students to state their favorite place, and say one thing they like about it. Ss get 3 minutes in Breakout rooms to discuss their favorite places. When Ss come back to class, T elicits guesses about T's favorite place - segue into TEXT

Text Analysis (10 minutes) • Help Ss identify TL in my text, and understand its formality.

T reveals favorite place with TEXT! Ss get 3 minutes to skim for GIST, and answer 2 questions on Google Forms. T asks CCQs to clarify key elements of TL: "What's the name of the place?" (Long Beach) "Do I say why I like it?" (Yes) "Is the tone formal, informal, or neutral?" (Neutral/Informal)

Writing Their Own Leaflets (15 minutes) • Students will use their existing knowledge, plus insights they gained from my example, to write their own leaflets

After those CCQs about T's brochure, it's time to introduce CHECKLIST. Nominate Ss to read it, line by line. Ss get 10 minutes to write their own leaflets about their own favorite places in a GOOGLE FORM. Guidelines from the CHECKLIST will be clearly visible at the top of the form.

Feedback and Error Correction (15 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language

Ss go into breakout rooms in pairs to read each other's brochures and peer-review for 5 minutes. T spends the remainder of class on OCFB and DEC.
