Listening and Speaking
To provide gist and specific information listening practice using a text about the speakers' experiences in the context of 'a bucket list'
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of a bucket list
Procedure (37-52 minutes)
T shows the poster of "The Bucket List" movie to Ss. T asks Ss if they watched the movie and want them to talk about it (if they watched, what happened in the movie and if they liked it.) T makes Ss watch a section of the movie for those who do not watch it asks Ss what they think about it
T draws Ss' attention to the photos and elicits that the idiom to kick the bucket has a figurative meaning apart from the literal meaning illustrated in the first photo. T finds out if any of Ss know the meaning and discusses what a bucket list might be. T confirms answers with the class.
T asks Ss to match the photos with the corresponding activities on the list. T checks the answers with the class and drills any vocabulary from the list that may cause problems.
Ss read the instruction and questions 1-3. T plays the recording, pausing after each speaker if necessary for Ss to note their answers. T checks answers together.
T asks Ss to decide which of the speakers talks about each aspect 1-9 and points out that sometimes they may need more than one person in their answer. T plays the recording again so that Ss can check and also complete any answers they did not know. T checks the answers with the class.
T asks Ss to create their own 'bucket lists'. T sends Ss to the breakout rooms and asks them to discuss and compare their bucket lists.
