TP -2 Lesson Plan (life stories/ writing)
To practice writing a profile.
To give students freer speaking practice of target language. To give sts practice in listening for detail.
Procedure (37-45 minutes)
Link to previous lesson by pointing out that we read a celebrity profile, and in this lesson sts will write a profile about another st in the class.
By putting sts into groups to prepare Qs. Make sure they are not working with the person they will interview. Go around checking the Qs. Make sure they each have a list of the Qs as they will split up to ask the Qs to someone else.
Now regroup them and get them to sit and interview each other in turns. Encourage them to take notes of the answers.
Students write the profiles and then show them to their partner. As they do this, actively monitor to provide error correction and help. Give them a time limit and warnings. When finished, the partner checks that the information is correct.
Pass the profile around so that sts can read the others. you may also like to put them on the walls and sts just go around reading them.
Wrap up the class by asking them if they found out interesting information about one another.
