To provide scan reading practice using a text about ageism in the context of age limitation
To provide fluency speaking practice in a conversation in the context of age limitation
Procedure (40-51 minutes)
I am going to ask them a question about age gap in marriage. What is the ideal age gap for marriage? and why? Then they are going to discuss their reasons about some activities that might need age limitation in order to do them. Next, they will try to add some more activities on and share their reasons with whole class.
I will draw their attention to the picture, and pre-teach some vocabulary such as ageism, turned sb into, early, mid and late thirties.
students will be provided with a set of scanning questions. first they will be given five minutes to scan through the text to answer the questions then they will discuss their reasons in pairs. finally i will give them the right answer.
I will give them a likely true story with some blanks. They will read the text and try to guess what they need to use the given words in order to fill in the blank. Then they will be provided with answer key. Next, to become sure that they understood their meanings, they do definition matching, and after that I will elicit the form of the words by writing them with their collocations. Finally, I am going to have them repeat the pronunciation and stress.
They will have a freer practice by writing an imaginary conversation in pairs. Then, they will compare their answers with what happened in a listening. After listening, they will compare their ideas and talk about what they would do if they were in the writer's shoes.
They will stand up and mingle to ask set of questions from three people, and while they are having conversation I will try to write some common errors to write them on the board.
