Procedure (64-82 minutes)
I will share 4 pictures on the screen with different locations. Students will discuss 3 questions: 1. Which would you prefer to live in and why? 2. What factors do you think to decide the quality of life in a city? 3. Which cities in the world do you imagine offer the best quality of life? Choose five and discuss the reasons for your choice. I will provide a demo answering one of the questions. Quick FB on content in OC
Students will work individually (on Google Slide) matching adjectives with their meaning, then they will compare in the breakout rooms, and finally, during the OCFB I will ask for examples to verify M and F are clear. I will drill pronunciation in OC.
Students will write some ideas for the following task: What could you say about your home town/city if you had to nominate it for a ranking of the world's best cities to live in? Then Ss will read a small article in their books about Istanbul and the writer's opinion on why this is a good city to live in. Learners will discuss in pairs if they would live in this city and give reasons to support their opinion. Students will read again to look in the article for ways to involve the reader shown in a text box and discuss what they find with one of their peers.
Students will read part of an article about the Pros and Cons of living in Merida, Mexico. Then they will discuss what they find interesting about this place and the reasons for living (or not) in there if they could. Students will read again the article for homework.
Students will write an article about their hometown and why they think it is a good place to live in.
Students will read their classmates' articles and discuss in pairs which one they liked the most and why. I will monitor the breakout rooms and give FB on content in OC. I will provide FB and corrections on content and language individually out of the schedule of the lesson.
