Teaching Practice 4
speaking and adjectives
Procedure (41-49 minutes)
I ll try to convey the meaning of competition by giving local example (survivor,o ses turkiye), to be sure the students understood I will ask CCQ: do you or your friends enter competitions? what things do people win in competitions? these questions will also set a context for the text. I will aslo pre-teach loser and winner (showing a photo).
I will ask sts to read first paragraph and discuss in pairs wether the reading will be about losers or winners. FB: I will ask CCQs to check if they understood the text: do many people enter competitions every year? (yes) Do many people win?(no)
First I introduce sts to the characters: Jim and Sandra, competition winners. I will divide class in two halves, A and B. One half reads about Jim, the other one about Sandra. Then they answer the questions about their characters. After that, A and B work together in pairs and ask same questions about each other's characters. FB: peer check, WC check.
First I ll write a sentence on the WB: I stayed in a very expensive hotel. I will ask students to point an adjective in this sentence. I will also pre-teach some of the adjs from the text. Then I will ask students to scan the text and underline all the adjectives. I ll give them a number - 20. I will give sts HOs with adjectives from the reading, I will ask them to match opposites
I will demonstrate instructions: each st gets a different picture. There is a description written on each of the pictures e.g. a beautiful woman. Sts mingle chestholding their pictures if they get the right description from the other st they swap their pictures and continue. FB: I will take notes while monitoring and perform WC error correction at the end of the lesson.
