Video Lesson, News Blunders

To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of news blunders.
Procedure (35-45 minutes)
Teacher ask students: "Do you watch the news? How do you describe a newscaster, serious or funny?" "Do you think they seem funny when make a mistake?" "Why do you think Tv viewers enjoy seeing newscasters and reporters making mistakes?" Teacher elicit the answer from students.
The teacher will give students a handout. There is a small reading text on it with some underlined words. There are definitions of the words on the same handout. Students will match them before watching the video. When they finish matching, students will check their answers with their pairs. The teacher drill some words and ask some CCQ to check students' understanding.
-Tell student write numbers from 1 to 7 on a piece of paper. The students will watch the video for the first time and match the problems with the blunders. When they finish answering, they will check their answers with their pairs. Ask students if there is any blunder they don't understand. If they say yes, encourage their friends to explain them. Ask students: "Do you think those blunders are funny?" "Which one is the funniest?"
Before students watch the video again, ask them if they remember the answers. Then students will watch the video again and do the fill in the blanks activity. Ask their answers and give WCFB.
In this stage of the lesson, I will ask about Guy Goma ( the wrong guest in the interview). Imagine that Guy Goma has a conversation between his family members after that news. Work in pairs and create a dialog. Students will be divided into two: As and Bs. If there is an odd number of students there will be one C for another member of the family. Give WCFB and do error correction if necessary.
