Do you like + gerund? / "The Job For You."
« on: April 15, 2009, 01:21:57 pm »
This is what I did while reviewing "Do you like [gerund]?"  It was for Grade 1 of middle school, but could work with higher-level elementary school students as well.  The "The Job For You" activity is particularly successful, though it will only take up 15 minutes or so, so you need to supplement it with stuff appropriate for your own class.

* * *

1. Do a "listen and write" activity.  Say three "Do you like [gerund]?" questions, and have the students write them on a paper (maybe on the worksheet attached, or on the back of the "the job for you" worksheet).

2. Show them a powerpoint like the one attached to review asking and answering these questions.  This was done for my particular class, so adjust accordingly.  Our textbook's chapter name was "Join our club!," but you can easily change that to whatever. [Edit: I forgot to attach it.  Nonetheless, there are plenty of ways to work on this language]

3. After it was clear the students knew how to ask and answer these questions, they went back and wrote answers for the questions they just heard and wrote.

4. I had the students tell me what afterschool activities they had at their school, and which ones they had joined.  Then they the matching exercise.

5. Explain and do "The Job For You" activity.  It was first brought up on this thread by Virginia, but I retyped it to make it easier to print.  Basically the students ask their partner 8 questions.  They circle their partner's answer down the column.  After all eight questions are asked and answered, the students total up the number of circles for each row.  The one with the most will be the most appropriate job.  It's been very successful for me.

Are there job titles, or are we supposed to make up ones? It looks like there are 11 jobs . . .  but none of them are listed . . . it's just blank.

The jobs are listed on the post I based the activity off of.

I didn't put the jobs on that paper because I don't want students seeing the jobs until the very end.

Brian, I think you forgot to attach the powerpoint that you mentioned in #2 of your original post.

Hmm, so I did.  That was nearly a year ago, and me, the computer, and the file are long gone. 

Sorry about that.  If people want to use a powerpoint it'd be easy enough for people to make their own.  I was never a big fan of using PP, so there are low-tech solutions as well. 

Sorry for the oversight, and thanks for picking up on it, kennyjd.

Hey.  I did this with my high school girls.  (I think they may be lower level than most, but this is my first year).  Here are the PowerPoints I used.  Both PowerPoints I found on Waygook, so no credit to me.  I think they're on a different thread.  I modified them slightly.  It worked well with my high school students.  They needed a lot of direction with "The Job For You" worksheet.  But they thought it was funny once they all figured it out and I showed them the jobs.

Ancient lesson plan, I know, but I used the survey today with one of my least enthusiastic classes (post final exams!) and they LOVED it.

Nothing fancy. Basically I just updated andiwithani's "The Job For You" reveals with photos of Koreans. I made the ones with each number stand up before revealing their jobs, which was great for getting a laugh out of their friends.
