TP8 - Imperatives & Greetings
Enable students to practice writing using formal and informal greetings mixed with imperatives in the context of text messages.
To encourage students to practice speaking to organise a party or meeting with their partners.
Procedure (31-42 minutes)
I will show the students images of different chatting platforms and I will ask them If they know them and what is their favourite and why?
I will show the students some 'what´s app' screenshoots of a conversation I had with my family and friends about organizing a party last year. I will send them to breakout rooms and I will ask them to identify greetings and imperatives in the text conversation.
I will send the students to breakout rooms and I will ask them to match greetings and imperatives identifying formal and informal expressions . I will go through a quick review of rules for imperatives ( If time allows ).
I will send students with a partner (s) to a breakout room and I will ask them to write a 'text' with their peers organizing a birthday party or halloween. I will bring them back to the main room and depending on the time I could send them into BOR again to check their writing with their group or we can have a general group checking.
I will take one writing example from the group and or gather in one slide the repetitive mistakes students had during the productive task and I will ask them to help me to correct them asking CCQ´s.
