Vocabulary in the text will be taught
Procedure (36-45 minutes)
There are four film pitches on the Wall. Students read all of them and choose a film to watch. When they have chosen a fillm they sit together. There must be four groups. All students cannot choose the same films because the tickets are not enough. While they are trying to choose a film, teacher plays the trials to make it more authentic.
Students select a picture for their films and stick them on the pitches and they sit together. Teacher asks two questions to each group. WHO are the main characters? and What is the Problem?
Teacher gives the students handouts. They listen to the text while reading and circle the words they don't know. After the reading and listening is over, teacher tells them the unknown vocabulary by the help of the visuals he has prepared before. On the other hand if it is needed he uses his gestures to create a meaning in the students' minds
Teacher collects the first handout and gives them a new handout in which the target vocabulary has been taken out. Students fill in the blanks and check with their peers. Teacher gives the first handout as an answer key.
In this stage students choose a film in groups and they tell class what it is about. It can be either a film among the extra visuals in the classroom or any films they like.
Some students may not be familiar with films. They may watch the trials and have a general idea obout the films.
