Procedure (42-57 minutes)
Students will be prompted to respond to the question, 'What is Financial Security?' All students will be called on individually and asked to not only provide their own definition of this term but also an example of what it would look like for them to be financially secure. Students will also have an opportunity to agree or disagree with what others have said.
Student will be shown via Jam-board and have a 4 part question in the chat. They will be brought into break out rooms of 2 each and closely monitored while sharing what their largest purchase was. Student will focus on what they bought, the price, the justification, and how they managed to afford it. This will allow background knowledge and understanding of the theme and topic without exposing the formal words. Students will then share with the class what their pair discussed and find similarities between their purchases and their finances.
As students report what they discussed in exposure, the teacher will keep an ear out for alternative ways they say or describe the target language of pay off, take off, put down, rip off and save up. This will be recorded and used as a reference.
Students will draw their attention to the images. Each image corresponds to a phrasal verb. Start with any covered in the Highlight teacher will prompt students to think of what the phrase means based on the image. After guesses have been made reveal the formal definition and have students drill both together and individually and repeat the phrases for proper pronunciation. Ensure all students recognize the rule of verb before preposition.
Students will be shown and given via chat a PDF of several situations. Each situation has a corresponding phrasal verb and in BOR they will try to match the situations. After working in pairs students will share with the group before referencing the form chart. After referencing the form chart and practicing together changing their correct answers from one form to the alternate (ie phrasal verb +noun vs verb + noun + preposition).
Students will be shown the original 5 phrasal verbs and given 5 minutes to individually create a personal scenario about a time this happened to them. Sentences will be written and reviewed for correctness.
