To introduce and practice the be verb in present simple in the context of jobs and conferences
Procedure (45-59 minutes)
Ss will stand in a circle (T uses gestures to indicate), and shake hands silently. Ss will then repeat the process introducing themselves (T will model this with one or two Ss). FB: T will ask if anyone remembers all the names in the group.
On WB: "What do you do? Do you like it? Why?" Ss ask and answer this question in pairs (T uses gestures to indicate pairs) FB: Ask a few students what their partner does for a living
Instructions: Chest HO -- "Do NOT open the paper. How many of these jobs do you know? Speak with a partner. If you don't know the word, no problem." ICQs: Can you open the paper? (No) / Are you writing or speaking? (Speaking) Ss discuss which words they know. T monitors for problematic vocab. [No FB, as this is just to check their knowledge]
Ss open the paper, and match the words with the pictures FB: Check in pairs WCFB: Ss to board T clarifies problematic answers (using CCQs) and drills pronunciation [T can also highlight the use of a/an here, if necessary]
T uses an example to elicit the idea of "Conference" [I am a businesswoman. Sometimes I go to another city, and I meet other business managers from other companies. We have meetings. It's usually in a hotel.]
Ss read the conversation and match with the pictures. They have 1 minute. ICQs: Will you fill the gaps? (No) / How much time? (1 minute) FB: Check in pairs / WCFB
Ss will listen to the conversations and complete the blanks (T will monitor to decide whether to play audio again) FB: Check in pairs, quick elicit for WCFB
ON WB: [We aren't from Australia / I'm an engineer and Connie's a lawyer. / Are you from Sydney? T elicits the verb, uses gestures to clarify meaning (It's about me/description). T elicits +/-/? form of the verb, and drills contractions.
Ss change the sentences to negative, if they are not true. (T monitors, helps and collects common errors for FB) FB: Check in pairs / Elicit answers at random for WCFB / further clarification, as needed.
Regroup Ss in new pairs, give HOs A and B. Ss work together to ask each other questions about the circled information on the guest list, and correct the problematic information. Instructions: Model on the WB + quick demo, if necessary. ICQs: Will you ask about ALL the information? (No) / Only the information in.... (Circles) / Is all the information incorrect? (No, some is correct) FB: Ss compare their papers to check answers / T provides EFF on common errors
