Lesson plan

  1. 1. Subject: Informática Aplicada Course: 4-691 Teacher: Paula Ledesma Students: Mariana Chiarella Natalia Heick LESSON PLAN Topic: Dinosaurs Source: Dinosaurs Book and CD-ROM Zigzag multimedia 1
  2. 2. Subject: Informática Aplicada Course: 4-691 Teacher: Paula Ledesma Students: Mariana Chiarella Natalia Heick Level: Pre- intermediate Aim The lesson is intented to provide students with five different activities based on a book the whole group has been reading since the last four lessons. During those lessons, students have been asked to write reports using the information in the book itself and carrying out extra research, they have had speaking sessions and oral presentations organised by the teacher and have answered different questionnaires with the intention of checking comprehension. All five activities focus on different sections of the book. Activities Students will be asked to work in pairs or groups of three solving the five activities. Though no special order to be followed will be imposed, the ‘Cloze’ activity will be suggested to be left for the very end, not only because of its length but also because its topic is the same that is dealt with at the end of the book.  Quiz – How much do you know about dinosaurs? This activity is intended to test general knowledge which students have been acquiring during the past lessons through previous different activities. It could be suggested as the first one of the set if we took it as a ‘How much do you remember?’ activity for students to have fun and test themselves / each other in a dynamic and entertaining way.  Match – How did their bodies work? This activity focuses on a special section of the book concerning dinosaurs’ bodies, how they functioned in spite of their size and the comparison with animals existing these days. Students are required to match the two parts of different statements to form the complete sentence.  Crossword - How did dinosaurs protect themselves from attack? The crossword focuses on the main items of vocabulary learnt throughout the whole book, making special emphasis on items referring to the title of the activity. The activity includes not only statements but also images which will help students guess the corresponding word. 2
  3. 3. Subject: Informática Aplicada Course: 4-691 Teacher: Paula Ledesma Students: Mariana Chiarella Natalia Heick  Mix – Dinosaurs’ eyes A mixed seventeen-word sentence is provided for students to put it in the correct order. Students will find out that correct shorter versions can be reached though the aim of the activity is to find the correct version for the whole sentence.  Cloze – What happened to dinosaurs? Students are required to fill in the gaps with a suitable word that matches the context. The topic chosen focuses on dinosaurs’ extinction and the possible explanations to their sudden disappearance. The text is a reduced extract from the original version students will have already read and discussed in previous lessons and the words omitted carry content rather than function. Therefore, the focus is on vocabulary. 3
