Writing most amazing moment in their life
pre intermediate level
Write a most amazing memory.
Learn new expressions and use them in their writing.
Procedure (45 minutes)
I will start the lesson by telling the students about extreme sports. I will show short youtube video. I will give some pictures and I will ask, “Did anyone try any of these extreme sports.” Then I will ask, “Why do people want to do extreme sports.” “Because of the adrenalin,” Adrenaline is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands during high stress or exciting situations.
Then I will ask students “Why did you feel that way and when and in which situation”. Students will work in their groups and talk about their experiences.
I will stick some expressions on the WB and ask students to talk with their group members and find out the meaning of the expressions. I will go around and monitor the students. Based on the students’ ability to understand, I will explain the word, which confused them.
I will explain that we are going to read Mike’s story. I will pass out cut strips and I will ask students to put these strips in the right order. They have to figure out which sentence will go under which category. When they are done, I will pass out the actual copy and I will ask them to check their answers.
I will pass out a writing paper and ask students to write about the most amazing moment in their life. I will remind them that they need to use at least 3 of these expressions.
When everyone is done writing about their memory, I will collect each student’s paper and pass them out to different students. Students will read each other’s writings and try to figure out whose writing it is.
