Rod Turner TP3: Listening
English Pre-Intermediate level
To provide practice listening for specific information.
To provide practice with productive skills (writing and speaking)
Procedure (30-70 minutes)
I'm going to start by doing a listening activity. The students will be giving a sheet a paper and will be instructed to match the sound of the animal with each animal picture on the hand out. I will have them peer check.
I'm going to play each part of tape script 75 for Tim, Gus and Maxine for listening exercise one. I will have the students work individually and then peer check. Since there are only three answers, I will show a picture for each answer.
I will define characteristics and have the class listen to the audios again and work on ex 2 of HO2. I will on students for feed back.
I will have the students continue to work in pairs for ex 3 of HO2. After that I will have the peer check other another group and call on some students for feedback.
I will have the students get together in an onion and have them answer question number 4 on the HO. After that I will get feedback from students about what they learned from each other.
A fun way to have the entire lesson come full circle is to test memorization by removing the animal name and ask them to guess the animal. Also I will talk about habitats by aksing the following: 1. Which animals you ca have a pets? 2. Which animals belong in a zoo?
I will have students come up to the board and play hang man with the topic of animals. This will keep the students and engaged and stay relevant to the lesson.
