To provide process and product writing practice of a blog reply in the context of health problems
To provide scan and detailed reading practice using a blog reply in the context of health problems.
Procedure (35-45 minutes)
I will ask students the following question: -Who do you ask for advice when you have a problem? -When I have a problem, I usually ask my _________ for advice. - Does this person give good pieces of advice? -Yes, he/she does. He/She always gives me good pieces of advice. I will encourage students to share their answers using full sentences with the whole class.
I will ask students to read a blog entry asking for advice and ask the following questions: - What is he asking for? donation - advice - information - What is his problem? He ___________. Then I will show them a reply to the blog entry and ask them: - What is the person's username? - How many recommendations does the person give? - How many sentences are there in this paragraph? At the end of the stage, I will say, "Now, let's take a look at language closely." to make sure Ss know they are moving to next stage.
I will ask students to work on a matching exercise to complete the advice and elicit the target language: when clauses and imperatives. Then I will show them the blog reply that was shown at the beginning of the class and elicit the target language which will be underlined and in color red.
I will show students a different blog entry and tell them to write a reply using Google Jamboard and following the checklist. They will have 15 minutes to write individually and then other 7 minutes for peer correction in the breakout-rooms.
After the productive task, I will show the students some correct and incorrect uses of language that I have witnessed throughout the lesson. I will show the incorrect sentences and ask the students what the mistakes are, in order to correct them. Finally, the correct uses of the language will be shown and praised.
