TP8- Writing
Upper Intermediate level


In TP8 the learners will carry out a writing based lesson on the topic of 'describing a scene'. We will start with a lead in prediction task, allowing the learners to elicit the topic. They will then discuss a topical question in break-out rooms before sharing their answers to the whole class. Learners will then look at a sample analysis to give context of what is required at the writing stage. We will then cover meaning, appropriacy and form of the language in further detail. Next, in the freer practice task, learners will write their own sample 'describing a scene' carried out individually. We will then go into a peer check and feedback. Finally we will finish with DEC.
