Lesson plan 4 weigum

  1. 1. Practice II: Didactics of ELT and Practicum at Primary School Level Carolina Weigum Lesson Plan N°4 08/09/2016 School N°246 “Quelulén” Course: 2nd Grade Teacher: Nadina Rodriguez Timetable fit: Thursdays from 16:00 to 16:50 Class description: Students are between 7 and 8 years old. They are 19 students (12 girls and 7 boys). The class starts after the break. There is a boy, Franco, that is integrated and he is usually accompanied by his special needs teacher. When his teacher is not with him, he can sometimes get a little nervous or demand more attention than usual. Sometimes he screams or hits his desk when he wants something and the teacher does not respond immediately. The teacher in charge of the English class, Nadina, told us that we should not praise Franco directly because he does not like it and he may get violent. There is a girl, Emilia, who pretends to be an animal and hides under the desk. Until now, she never got to work in the English class. The teacher tried in many different ways and tones of voice to convince her to work as the rest of her classmates but she does not pay attention. We (trainees) also tried to sit next to her and help her participate, but she does not answer, she does not look at us in the eyes and she pretends that we are not there. Finally, the teacher decided to ignore her for a while. The teacher told us that she was going to try to speak with Emilia’s mother about her behavior in class. The rest of the group is very participative and they work very well. Most of the time they speak in Spanish, but when they have to answer questions in English or participate in an oral activity all together they do it well. When they have to work in pairs orally, they need the constant help/guidance of the teacher to do it. The students have been working with numbers, colors, school objects, weather and seasons. Emilia and Franco worked very well last class! They were very enthusiastic about the activities and they participated actively.  Lesson aims: As teachers we’ll try to…  Focus on oral aspects (listening and speaking) considering learners’ ages to acquire language.  Use multisensory approach to favor learners’ motivation and acquisition of language.  Using games as a tool for learning as well as enjoying the class.
