• To provide speaking for fluency in a role play/ conversation in the context of crime investigation
Procedure (43-53 minutes)
I'll show SS a picture with some of the reading text sources SS use in their daily life on a slide and elicit SS answers after asking them. 1- which do you read in your language ? 2- which do you read in English?
1- I. set the context "before reading, these three words are from the text" 2- I. elicit meanings of the vocabulary items through pictures, examples, and a contexts 3- After ss are able to elicit the vocab, I ask CCQs to check to understand. 4- I. drill the vocab, items' meaning, pronunciation, and form.
1- I show SS a picture of the back of the book, from which they will read an extract from later, and ask "What is the book about?" 2- I. pose questions to check SS's understanding" ok then, who's Amanda?" 3- I. elicit answers from the Ss. " She's Jeremy's wife." 4- I set the task and demo "Now you will read the text alone and then you will mark seven sentences with (True) or (False), and correct the false sentences." 5- I ask a couple of ICQs - Are you going to read and answer alone or in a group? - Are you going to read quickly or slowly? - Will you just mark the sentences with (True) or (False)? 6- I. display the reading text alongside the seven True or False sentences. 7- Ss read individually. 8- After Ss finish, I. put them into breakout rooms to check answers in groups. 9-I. monitor to help when needed and to make sure all Ss are on the same task 10- I show Ss the answer key as a feedback
1- I. set the context by saying " Now you will listen to the inspector investigating/ asking Barbra, Gordon, and Claudia. Listen and fill in the chart with their answers." 2- The Ss listen and fill in the chart individually. 3- After they finish, I. divide them into breakrooms to compare their answers with their fellow colleagues. 4-I monitor and offers help if needed. 5- I display the answer key as feedback.
1- I. asks them to discuss within groups who they think is the murderer and why. 2-I. elicit Students' answers in an open class discussion. 3- I. play the last track for Ss to know who is the murderer.
