Lesson Plan Text

Interrupting phrases
Photocopiable cards and teacher’s instructions
Cut up one set of cards per pair of students. Ask students to work together to  
use those words to make phrases (orally) that can be used to interrupt or to  
stop interrupting and get back on topic. If they need help, tell them that there  
should be eight of each. Let them compare their ideas against the suggested  
answers sheet, then ask them to spilt the cards so that one person has the  
Interrupting cards and the other person has the Stopping Interruptions cards.  
The person with the Stopping Interrupting cards should try to talk as long as  
they can about a topic, e.g. one of the ones on the Suggested Answers  
sheet, while the other person tries to interrupt them. They must use one of  
their cards and a different phrase each time they interrupt or stop interrupting.  
They can use the same card twice, just as long as the phrases they use are  
at least slightly different.
