    Re: Sharing lessons

    Hi Noego,

    I just signed up into this useful site. It took me long, you know. I'm typing something quick. You can find class-planning tips, games that do not take beforehand preparation, experiences of a teacher of English plus teacher trainer, etc., on my blog.

    Hope any useful to you and other teachers!

    Sorry, I could not put my link, basically because I'm new here on this site. Some games that come up to mind:

    1. Hangman, but with words instead of just letters: it helps practice grammar and making up full sentences.

    2. Dictionary game: you write a word on the board, and the winner is the student who found the word first.

    3. Mental directions: you, slowly, tell your students some instructions to reach such or such place in the school. They follow your instructions in their minds. They say the right place who all have reached.

    4. Help them write their resume (Curriculum Vitae) to prepare a job interview one of them has to face up with, to be employed to a company or job you all have agreed.

    5. The job interview with a student, before the class.

    I wrote some games, quicly.Like i told you I have many more. Hopethese ones can help you out. - I wrote some games different levels of English.

    Best wishes

    Fernando Diez Gallego

    I have to learn how to attach a picture of mine to my profile. Well, later on!

    Re: Sharing lessons

    Hi,

    I've started doing some work with current events here in Germany, and also making some attempts at using multimedia in the classroom. The materials I made or adapted are on my website www english-ninja com. Everything is free and I try to update it weekly. I'd appreciate feedback on the materials if anyone gets a chance.

    Regards,

    Shawn

    Thumbs up Re: Sharing lessons

    Thanks for sharing. I've just become a member and I've seen your riddles activity. I'm currently with a weekly challenge through E-mail with my students and they have to answer the riddle. So your riddles came in the right time.
    Thank you very much.

    Re: Sharing lessons

    Hello, I would like to share the lesson I prepared for CELTA assignment 3 (authentic material lesson). I used it succesfully in a small elementary class of 8 adults. I didn't have the time to let the students role-play their dialogues at the end, but I wasted some time earlier, I think this lesson can be done in 60 minutes.



    Preparation: You will need a pair of earplugs for each student, a laptop and a projector.

    The class: Elementary. Students should be able to form positives, negatives and questions in present simple, and to ask for / give / spell names and addresses.
    Small class: 6 – 10 students.

    Time: 60 minutes.

    Materials Used: “Sound Name” sketch from “A bit of Fry & Laurie”, season 01, episode 02, BBC2 1989 (transcript) and 2 handouts: gapfill exercise and example dialogue.

    Aims: To give students practice at listening for gist and for specific information. To give students fluency practice at asking questions and at retelling what they have heard / seen. To give students less controlled spoken practice / rehash of asking for / giving / spelling names and addresses in a form of a role-play. To raise students confidence with authentic texts.



    NEW LANGUAGE:

    Structural: No new structures introduced.

    Lexical:
    Verbs: to drop, to (tap)dance, to slap, to punch, to hit.
    Nouns: a nipple, a lighter, a bit, a (cricket) bat.
    Adjectives: unusual.
    Phrases: hold on a second, how do you spell, it's as it sounds.



    PROCEDURE:

    Lead-in
    Elicit a few body parts (finger, head, eye, leg), incorporate a nipple as seamlessly as possible, write it up, drill.
    Show the first still: a policeman writing something, a man in front of him. Ask the students to describe the picture. What do you think happens next?

    Listening 1
    Divide the class into two groups, they sit in two rows facing each other: one group sits their back to the screen, another group faces the screen.
    Explain that one group will watch the film with earplugs in, and another will only listen. They will make notes, so they can later remember what they heard / saw and retell it to other students.
    Distribute the ear-buds. First half of the film (name) is screened.

    Group-work 1
    Students sit in two separate groups. In their groups, students discuss what the story of the film could be and prepare questions for another group.

    Class-work 1
    To drop, a lighter introduced.
    Students get together. Free speaking activity: they ask each other questions and try to recap the sketch together.

    Listening 2
    Same as 1, but swap the groups.
    Second half of the film (address) is screened.

    Group-work 2

    Class-work 2
    To (tap)dance, to slap, to punch, to hit, a (cricket) bat introduced.

    Delayed correction (Of group-work and class-work 1 and 2)

    Gapfill
    Students watch the full video and fill the gaps individually. Paircheck, feedback.

    Follow-up activity
    Elicit hold on a second, a bit unusual, how do you spell, it's as it sounds.
    In pairs, students prepare short dialogues. They can, but don't have to, use the example sentences from the handout. Encourage them to joke. Then students role-play their dialogues.

    I just to say, however, this isn't my thread.

    I mean the whole purpose of this thread is that we can all share our teaching plans together.

    Present them in a way which is simple for other teachers to use them.

    Wouldn't it be awesome if we all shared what we've discovered/done, what we've tested in our classrooms and what turned out to be great material?

    I hope some of you, who are reading this, will participate in this little project!:)
    Excellent, Noego! Incidentally, may I ask if you have any worksheets for
    ARTICLES with explanations/answers other than those provided in Usingenglish.com?

    Post Sharing St Valentine's Day worksheet

    Hi all,
    As I know that teachers are really busy and tend to do many things at the last minute... I'd like to share a worksheet I made recently on the St Valentine's Day.
    It includes a reading text (compiled by me), pre-reading tasks, vocabulary exercises, comprehension questions and a creative task. Of course, you can add more of your own!
    You can download the .doc print-out (3 pages) from englishville.org - go to "For teachers", Lesoon Plans section, there are also few useful blank syllabus forms (if you need them).
    Have a nice day everyone!
