The students will get speaking practice, reminded of some vocabulary with a focus on fluency


No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in the context of schooling

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide review of vocabulary in the context of schools and the theories surrounding pedagogy


Warmer/Lead-in (3-4 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

The students will be asked the 3 questions, one at a time and asked why or some other probing question.

Exposure (7-8 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

I provided 3 vocabulary items that are useful when discussing the topic of school and understanding the audio to be played after (literacy, circadian, and compatibility). Ss will read the definitions, I will then conduct choral rehearsal of the words including the stress highlighted in bold. For each image I will point out the image and ask, how is this related to ____ (insert vocabulary word).

Useful Language (8-10 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

I will ask the student to read the questions and discuss them in breakout rooms. I will put the questions in chat and split them up and give them 8 minutes to discuss. I will visit the groups and listen for fluency.

Productive Task(s) (18-20 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

I will play the audio clip for them whilst showing the script. Then I will send them back to breakout rooms with 3 more questions that I will send in chat. I will listen for fluency once again

Feedback and Error Correction (8-10 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language

I will have some themes that I heard from the discussions and I will try and highlight productive interactions and not so productive interactions. Then see if we can re-word them to make them clearer.
