To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of "Getting qualified to get a job"
To provide practice of employment vocabulary in the context of "Getting qualified to get a job"
Procedure (27-37 minutes)
A presentation including some pictures of people working in different jobs will be viewed. Sts are encouraged to pick the job of their dreams and talk about the main reason for their choice. All the students will participate individually while I'll use annotation to write the names of sts over the pictures they choose to decide on the top job of the class.
I'll show the students a short video about a senior student talking about his dream job to give them a model of the simulation task they have to do at the end. I'll ask them to take notes about the points the person covered and their opinion in the language they used.
* Vocabulary teaching (MPF) I'll show the students pictures revolving around 3 words related to the topic "Qualification, Salary, opportunity". I'll ask them eliciting questions to help them guess the meaning. I'll state the meaning and ask them the following ccq's: 1- What is a skill you need to develop in order to get a job? (qualification) 2- What is the amount of money you are paid at a job? (Salary) 3- Have you ever recognized an opportunity coming in your own way? Then, I'll teach the pronunciation of the three words and do the drilling from a group of selected sts. Then, I'll show them the words in context. * Planning Time: (Brainstorming Stage) I'll open a discussion to warm the students' minds and give them ideas to help them plan for their speaking: - Do we have to find a job matching our college major? - Can you imagine yourself working in a job you do not like? - Does the qualification stage start after you finish college or from now? * Controlled Practice: I'll ask sts to work in breakout rooms to answer three given questions: 1- What are your top 3 skills that will help you succeed in your future job? 2- What are the jobs you will never think of working in? 3- Do you want to work in the same job of any of your parents? Freer Practice: - Sts are going to go to breakout rooms where only 2 students will be in each room to practice speaking freely about the topic in a debate over this question: -Do you agree that College students should wait to develop their qualifications after college? Why?
Simulation: Students will be divided into two groups. Each group will design a presentation where each person will have an opinion related to the topic of "Getting qualified". After they finish, each group will present their project to the whole class.
Students' feedback: Each student will write in the chat box the things he/she thinks they could improve during the speaking session. Teacher's feedback: I'll give a general feedback correcting the most prominent linguistic mistakes and giving advices about how to improve their fluency.
