To provide gist and detailed reading practice using a text about school in the context of an interview with two english teachers
To provide review of Past to be verbs in the context of school subjects
Procedure (43-51 minutes)
T shows photos of two people on the board with some phrases written besides them. T tells SS who these people are and asks if they can guess their jobs.
T asks SS to talk in pairs and say which phrase is about who. T sets a time limit and then write their predictions on the board. Then T tell about the reading.
T have SS in tow groups. Paragraphs of the reading and their topics are on the wall. T asks SS to match the titles (questions) to the correct paragraph (answer). After they finish,T gives the answers to the SS, and they'll see which group wins.
T gives the text to the SS and asks them to read individually. T sets a time limit and when it is over asks them to do exercise 1, in pairs. Then gives them the correct answers.
T have SS in 2 groups to do 'what's the question...?' game. Then gives each group a set of sentences which are questions of some answers. T stands in front of the class and shows one answer ( on paper or write on the board ), then SS have to find the question as quickly as possible, the group that finds it sooner gain a point. The winner is the group with the higher score. This activity is a review of Wh questions with past to be verbs (their grammar lesson from the last section).
T have SS in two groups and asks them to write three sentences about their past (sentences should start with 'I was good at...' 'I was bad at...' 'My favorite subject was...'). Then asks each group to crumple the papers and put them into a packet and switch their packets. They open the packet ( which is from the other group) and read each paper and they guess who this paper belongs to. For each correct guess they get a point, and the group with higher point is the winner.
T corrects the mistakes(if there were any) SS made during speaking practice. T writes the mistakes on the board and asks SS to correct them.
