To provide gist and detailed reading practice using a text about good and bad times in the context of parties
Procedure (37-51 minutes)
Ss will visualize words on the board. Ss will line up in two lines and rush the board for the correct vocabulary words according to the clues given.
Ss will listen to the TL within context, then the Ss will receive the text and underline words within the text via the receptive skill of reading. This will achieve the sub-aims of listening for gist and reading for detail. Ss will receive FB using PW.
Clarification of the TL (was, were, wasn't, weren't). I will begin with the positive form of the TL and give the Ss a gap-fill HO and then move to the negative and hand the Ss a HO. WC FB will follow both positive and negative sections. It is my hope that through breaking down the material the Ss will easily absorb the new concepts.
Ss will receive a HO with a paragraph in which Ss will have to circle the correct term. Ss will discuss answers using PW and then be given the correct answers. This HO gives Ss more freedom and choice than the previous HO, but still remains controlled practice.
Ss will listen to the audio sample and answer questions about the track. The Ss will begin the activity by being asked, "was Margaret's birthday party good?, Why?" Then, Ss will listen to the audio recording for gist and answer the question in PW. Lastly, Ss will be given a HO with questions about the audio recording. Ss will view the questions and then listen again for detail. Ss will answer the questions together in groups. FB will be WC.
Ss will view sentences on the WB. Ss will correct sentences as a WC.
