Teaching Practice 1
To get the students develop their reading skills with appropriate leading and materials.
To provide an opportunity for the students to get some speaking practice to help their spoken fluency.
To teach them some vocabulary related to the paragraph they will read.
Procedure (41-53 minutes)
I will present them a short powerpoint to warm them for the lesson and I think it will attract their attention.
I will show them a picture of Machu Pichu which is the place mentioned in the passage. I will also ask them some lead-in questions to see their speaking skills. They will also talk about 5 places they would like to visit in the world and I will mingle them all to discuss on them which will warm the atmosphere even more for the rest of the lesson.
I will try to elicit some important or key words from the passage by oral explanation or drawing some pictures on the board. If I cannot get the SS predict correctly, I will give them the words with their pronunciation and drill them.
They will try to find the words they learnt through the passage and will have a chance to see them within sentences. Later on they will have a True-False activity to check if they understand the passage at all with a pair work.
They will find two opposite views for the cable car from the passage. One is for and one is against it. I will check if they remember the verbs 'agree' and 'disagree' from yesterday's lesson as well. And if we have time, they will express their opinions about the cable car for Machu Pichu.
I will ask them about Istanbul's problems about tourism. Questions in TB p.57 might help me to guide them.
