Non-chronological report writing: in the context of animals.
Grade 6 level
To give students the main features of writing a report in the context of animals.
to introduce students to the technical questions related to the text type and their model answer.
Procedure (45-55 minutes)
I will tell them a story about my trip to Sri Lanka where I met the bee hummingbird. It was the first time I have ever seen such a bird so I wanted to know more information about it, let's know them together.
T elicits the word 'report' from Ss. T asks "How do we write a report? What is the structure of a report and what language do you use when writing a report? T goes through the structure of a report using the reading text from the previous lesson.
T highlights the language used in the report that they must use the present tense, formal style and third person. Then I will stick some subheadings on the board and display some paragraphs to each group of students and I will ask them to match them to the suitable subheading.
I will divide students into groups and ask them to brainstorm to write a report about lions.
Groups display their reports on the wall. Ss do a quick gallery walk to read and decide which report is the best. T selects one report for whole class feedback and error correction.
