Talking About Plans Lesson

  1. 1. RACHEL RHEAULTNOVICE-HIGH: TALKING ABOUT FUTURE PLANS USING INFORMATION QUESTIONS (WH-QUESTIONS) WITH GOING TO Prior Activities: The activities leading up to these lessons included a review of vocabulary words that the students should have already known. These words included: he, she, they, shop, eat, sled, swim, play, dance, beach, club, snow park, park, restaurant, and store.PRESENTATION: I will go through the slide show and read each question and answer. On the slides the question appears once onthe first slide and again on the corresponding answer slide. I will read it on both the first slide and the correspondinganswer slide to provide repetition of the WH-question format. (See 125FRachelRheaultFinalPresentation.pptx).LISTENING ACTIVITY: I will pass out the WHAT AND WHERE chart (see page 2) to the students. I will hold up a copy of the chart andpoint to the pictures in the first column as I tell the students what they represent; he, she, they, shop, eat, sled, swim,play, dance, beach, club, snow park, park, restaurant, and store. I will tell the students that we are going to listen to atape, cupping my hand to my ear and gesturing to the stereo. Then I will point to the class and say that they are going tomark down, drawing a ’X’ in the air with my finger, what they hear, cupping my ear again, about each number, pointingto the top row on the chart. I will explain that the first one has been done for them by saying, “What is he going to do?He is going to swim. Where is he going to swim? He is going to swim at a beach.” while I point to number 1, he, swim,beach and the ‘X’s on the chart. Then I will play the script FUTURE PLANS (see page 3). After the script plays through Iwill gesture and ask the class to pass up their charts for me to collect.Level: This activity is appropriate for a novice-high learner. They can understand the short sentences consisting oflearned questions and statements that a produced as a formula with interchangeable parts. This composition followsstate-of-the-art listening pedagogy. It doesn’t confuse channels. I did not ask the student to speak or read. I front loadedthe chart so that it did not become a comprehension activity. The chart also gave the students something to do whilelistening which made it an active listening activity. 1

  4. 4. CONTROLLED SPEAKING ACTIVITIES:More Controlled Communicative Activity: I will pass out the handout, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO? (See page 5), toeach student. I will hold up a copy of WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO? and give a demonstration. I will point the firstpicture and ask the class, “What are they going to do?” Then I will answer saying, “They are going to eat.” Then I will ask,“Where are they going to eat?” prompting the class to answer. Then I will say “They are going to eat at a restaurant” andpoint to the corresponding picture. Next, I will put the class in to pairs and have them ask each other about the pictureson the handout, WHAT ARE THEY GOING TO DO?, the same way I just demonstrated. I will walk around the classlistening to the groups and giving corrections when appropriate.Level: This Controlled Activity is for a novice-high level learner. The learner will be able to partially satisfy the requirementsof basic communicative exchanges by heavily relying on the utterances learned during the presentation, and the listeningactivity. There is room for expanding the language because a script is not provided, but the only utterances required consistof learned ones. The learner can ask questions or make statements using the script from the presentation and listeningactivity. The vocabulary used in the activity consists of common kinship terms. 4

  6. 6. Less Controlled Communicative Activity: I will cut the handout on page 7 in half, so there is enough halves for each student to have one half. I will put theclass into groups of 2 students and give one student in each group SIDE A of the handout and the other student in thegroup SIDE B (See page 7). I will choose one group to help demonstrate to the class problem number 1. I will look at SIDEA and say to my partner “What are they going to do?” Then if the student I asked does not respond I will move overbehind him and I will prompt the student to fill in his “they” blank, with a drawing or writing, and to respond “They aregoing to shop.” Then I will point to his blank and if he does not say “Where are they going to shop?” then I will say it.Then I will go back to my sheet and answer, “They are going to shop at a beach.” I will tell the class to each other aboutthe pictures on the handout and fill in the blanks the same way I just demonstrated. I will walk around the class listeningto the groups and giving corrections when appropriate.Level: This Controlled Activity is for a novice-high level learner. The learner will be able to partially satisfy the requirementsof basic communicative exchanges by heavily relying on the utterances learned during the presentation, the listeningactivity, and the more controlled activity. As well as, have a chance to practice communicating in the more controlledactivity before moving on to this less controlled activity. There is room for expanding the language because a script is notprovided, but the only utterances required consist of learned ones. The learner can ask questions or make statements usingthe script from the presentation and listening activity. The vocabulary used in the activity consists of common kinship terms. 6
