Teaching Practice 8
To provide practice in speaking (story telling) in the context of strange experiences using past simple and past perfect tense.
To provide listening for specific information and writing a story in the context of weird experiences.
Procedure (37-48 minutes)
I will tell students a wierd story that has happened to me and ask for similar stories from the students.
We will listen to an anecdote about a strange encounter. Students will answer some comprehension questions afterwards.
Students will get 2 sets of papers - 2 parts of various sentences - to match. After they're done, we will put some model sentences on WB and I will elicit some more examples.
Students will be divided in groups. I will give them the beginning of a story and ask them to finish it. Each group will get a paper. Each student will write one sentence and fold the paper so that the student coming after him/her will see only the sentence that was written immediately before the paper got to him/her. After they've written a story long enough, each group will unfold the paper and read the story among the group. Afterwards, each group will tell the story to the other group(s).
Having finished the task, I will try to point out the good things and correct any possible mistakes.
Students will be regrouped. I will have some flash cards with words prepared. I will provide the beginning of a story again. Each group's members will take turns in picking a word and making a sentence about it. They will not write it down, just speak. I will ask them to remember as much as they can and then retell their story to the other group(s).
I will again try to point out good things and correct mistakes.
Students will have 2-3 minutes to think of their own stories that happened to them and then tell their partners.
