Main Aims

  • Write a most amazing memory.

Subsidiary Aims

  • Learn new expressions and use them in their writing.


Lead in (5 minutes) • Looking at the Pictures and talk about adrenalin.

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.

Discussing (5 minutes) • Sts talk about their own experience

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.

Lexis (7 minutes) • Learn about expressions

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.

Introducing the topic (8 minutes) • Cut- strips

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.

Writing (10 minutes) • Writing personal narrative

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.

Freer practice (10 minutes) • Students practice language

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.
