Teaching Practice 5
To provide listening for gist and specific information in the context of a conversation at the doctor.
To provide clarification and practice of language used for conversation between a patient and a doctor in the context of 'at the doctor'.
Procedure (28-36 minutes)
I will ask the students 'What do we use when we get sick?' (Antibiotics, medicine...) 'Do we have to go to the doctor to get a prescription for antibiotics in Turkey?' If the answer is 'no', then I'll ask whether they think it's right or not. If the answer is 'yes' , I will mention that you don't really need to and we'll discuss that further. I will put the picture of Stuart from the book on WB and we'll try to guess what can be wrong with him. I will want to navigate the students to use words 'flu', 'depressed' and 'paracetamol', since these are in the listening and may be harder to remember.
Students will listen to the text and guess whether Stuart was happy when he left the doctor or not. If yes, why and if not, why?
I will give out HO on the listening. Students will listen to the recording twice and will fill in the gap fill HO. They will check in pairs and then we'll check together.
Students will have a quick discussion about how often they go to the doctor, which one do they go to mostly and how do they feel about going to the doctor.
There will be sentences from exercise 1 on p. 103 on the walls over the class. Students will be divided into 2 groups. One group will have to find the phrases that belong to the doctor and the other group will have to find those belonging to the patient. They have to take the phrases and stick it on the WB as quickly as possible. The first one to have it done correctly wins. We'll practise pronunciation and I will elicit some more examples.
I will ask if they know what it is to pull a muscle and an appointment. I'll explain if needed. Then I'll give out a gap fill HO. Students have to fill it in using phrases from the board. We will listen to the recording to check their answers. They will check in pairs and then we'll check together.
Students will be divided into 2 groups. There will be papers with phrases of a doctor and papers with phrases of a patient. Teams will take turns in turning papers and try to match the doctor phrase to the appropriate patient phrase.
