TP 7: Speaking - Altruism
Uppper Intermediate level
To provide Ss with an opportunity to speak about altruism, their experiences, and opinions related to it.
To provide an opportunity for Ss to practice reading, vocabulary, and listening.
Procedure (32-43 minutes)
I'll use a ppt with pictures on it to narrate a true personal event about an altruistic act. Ss will describe the actions of my friend. The goal is to elicit 'altruism' or 'altruistic'.
Ss will be given 5 key vocabulary words that will be needed to understand the short article they will read. The answers will be in the lobby. Students will match the term with the definition. In WCFB, we'll elicit form, and stress.
Ss will read the article (ex 1) alone. Afterwards, Ss will PW and discuss their opinion of whom they believe was the most altruistic of the two men in the article. We'll take a vote as to who was the most altruistic.
In PW, Ss will discuss and answer the questions from ex. 3 We'll take FB on the most interesting examples.
From the final activity, I will have monitored and noted any sentences or words needing correction. I will write the sentence, elicit the sentence stress, and / or word form/stress as needed.
