Vocabulary and speaking lesson in the context of problems and solutions
To provide the students with clarification of meaning, pronunciation and form of a lexical set in the context of problems and solutions.
To provide the ss with fluency speaking practice in a discussion in the context of problems and solutions.
Procedure (39-53 minutes)
I will get ss attention by telling them about my typical reaction when I am faced with a problem. Then, I will ask them to tell each other in pairs about their typical repsonse whenever they face a problem. Finally, I will get their feedback by asking two students.
I will provide the students with short and simple instruction on Ex1 on Pg126,127 which is a matching exercise to test their previous knowledge of the TL. Next, ss will check their answers in pairs. Then, I will display the answer key.
First, I will try to elicit the TL from the ss using visuals, context, synonyms, and examples. Then, I will check the meaning of the TL using some CCQs. Next, I will drill the TL and highlight the stress in the words and clarify the form on the whiteboard using color codes. Here is a list of the TL vocabulary: 1) come up with 2) concerned 3) suffered 4) ignore 5) go away 6) talk over 7) sympathetic 8) helpline 9) trouble-free 10) sort out 11) expert advice 12) make up your mind Here are some of the CCQs I will use: Do sympathetic people care only about themselves and their feelings? No Does having a trouble-free life means you have an easy life? Yes Is your friend's advice about your health considered expert advice? No Is there a helpline in Egypt for Covid19? Yes. Do you pay attention to things you are trying to ignore? No
For this stage, ss will work on Ex10a in pg92 in the WB. First, I will demonstrate the first question with the ss. Then, I will ask the ss to check their answers in pairs before displaying the AK.
For this stage, I would change pairs. I will give the ss two minutes to think of a difficult problem they had in the past. Then, they would take turns to share the problem and how they have solved it with their partner using the TL on the whiteboard. Meanwhile, I will monitor to jog down the errors and a couple of good examples to highlight during the linguistic feedback.
