Procedure (31-47 minutes)
This section will include a brief discussion on what is a signature and an autograph. T asks the sts 'if you met a famous person, what would you say to them?' T elicits the Word 'autograph' from the sts. T tells the sts about her own experience of meeting a famous person and getting her signature on a piece of paper. (T acts this out). T holds the paper and asks the sts what the name of this is. CCQ - Do we collect signatures or autographs. - AUTOGRAPHS
T pairs the sts, holds the two sets of papers. T tells the students to match the words (one set of papers) with their definitions (the other ste of papers) in pairs. Before the sts start the exercise, T explains that the fastest group wins. When finished T tells the two groups (at the moment only sts) to check their answers with each other.
T shows the sts exercise for gist and detail reading, tells the sts to fold the paper in half (T demonstrates). T tells the sts to read the text (T shows) and on their own, answer the questions. When finished, T tells the sts to chech their answers with the person sitting next to them followed by a WC FB if needed.
T tells the sts to unfold the exercise paper, read the text again in detail and, on their own, put the phrases in the gaps. When finished, T tells the sts to check their answers with each other (on this occasion, T decides the PW). T checks if everyone got the same answers, if not, WC FB.
T writes two sentences on the board. - What kinds of jobs are connected to your interests or hobbies? (The sts can make a list of 3-4 jobs - individually) - Would you like to do one of these jobs? T pairs the sts for a discussion about the above topics. T monitors, makes notes of good language use and some errors, writes them on the board after the discussion is finished ans asks the sts to find & correct the errors.
