During the lesson, learners will be able to:
Develop their reading skills by working on a description of an ideal city and an
interview about a real city.
Develop their listening skills by listening to the descriptions created by thegroup.
Develop their writing skills by producing their own descriptions of their ideal city.
Teaching Approach: Communicative Approach
Integration of Skills: the reading and writing skills are integrated through
descriptions and interviews which will be used to foster interaction among students
and with the teacher. Also, the reading skills are developed through activities that
include complete and correct sentences according to texts. Also, the writing skills
are developed to encourage their imagination and become more independent.
Pedagogical use of ICT in class: no use of technology tools.
Materials: worksheets with exercises for each student, board, marker and
flashcards related to the topic.
Seating arrangement: According to the type of activity, the Ss will be sitting in
pairs or in groups of 5 students.
Cooperative work: there is no group work in this lesson.
Possible problems and possible solutions: the most important problem
could be the time between when the bell rang up to the moment the students come
to the class. There is a waste of time and it is very difficult to make them
concentrate in the topic or to make them be silent. The possible solution is to wait
them with a previous activity in order to make them finish it.
Assessment: The assessment will be focused on the final part of the class when
the students check all together the tasks and I am monitoring all their activities.
