Hi guys,

This site has been super helpful to me in my early days teaching here in Korea. Now I'm feeling a bit more confident I'd like to pay it back with some of my lesson plans!

This one is for the first half of lesson 5 (I teach listening and speaking sections over two lessons) and should be fairly self-explanatory. I used The Kinks - Dedicated Follower of Fashion for extra listening (which you can find on You Tube) and my middle school girls loved singing along to the "oh yes he is" chorus!

I elicited the descriptions at the start, then they practised with the different slides on the ppt. The final task involved them designing two t-shirts and then practising the dialogue together. The girls love to draw and they got really into this task!

Hope this helps someone.

Georgina

My PowerPoint presentation for Lesson 5 Ways of Appealing to the Mind.
Lesson focus is on shopping, so giving your opinion and asking for other things.
Do you have any other ones?
Also, on giving permission, i.e. feel free to eat the cake.
I used Lady Gaga and Beyonce, lol, because I teach all girls and Lady Gaga is a fashion icon. So, her crazy fashion could be of interest to the students.

Change slide 28 to your pictures and slide 1 to your name.

(If you don't have time you can skip this part) I had them try to guess what "it" is on slide 29 and then showed the video clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P9Fyey4D5hg

I adapted kitty bawdens ppt with another ppt I found on waygook about shopping.

I then used the dream home game worksheet as the main activity in class, that somebody else posted on here.

I normally use a song at the start of class and get the students to fill in the missing lyrics as a warm up, so 'dedicated follower of fashion was a great way to start the class and the students enjoyed the song too!

 I played a concentration game with the class (Guess Where) to practice some of the vocab from this chapter. The students seemed to like it, even the trouble maker and the quiet kids. It took up about 20 or 30 minutes.

Before the game I went over how to say numbers (twenty, thirty, forty, etc.), so it was a good review of that too.

We played the game "20 questions", but I made into '15' for time sake.
I usually play 5 guesses. If they can't get it, then move onto the next one.

Change slide 84

:-[ I don't quite understand how the class plays this :sad:

How to play:

Choose a pair (2 students)
Student A chooses a letter i.e A
Student B chooses a letter i.e B
Click A and B
there will be two items of clothing
i.e A is a shirt
B is a pair of shoes
There is no match.

Next pair can try.

Student C chooses letter C
and Student D chooses letter D
Click C and D
there will be two items of clothing
i.e. a dress and a dress
Dress C will have a "O", this is the one they want to buy.
Dress D will have a "X", this is the one they don't like because of the colour, design, pattern etc.
Because they found two of the same, they must now make a dialog to go with the picture.
i.e.
Student C: I'm looking for a dress.
Student D: How about this one? (points to the dress with the "X")
Student C: I don't like the (pattern/colour/design). Do you have any other ones?
Student D: Sure, we do. How about this one? (points to the dress with the "O")
Student C: I'll take it.

Students C and D found a matching pair and they could make a dialog, so you can give them a sticker and the next pair can try.
Game is over when all the matches have been made.

This is for the first section "Do you have any other ones?"

I expanded "other" to include any other adjectives to make the lesson a little more interesting. During the presentation, click the blocks to reveal the dialogue.

Also included is a worksheet and a game.

The game might be a little confusing. You're helping Obama shop. He's looking for something kind of specific. It'll have 3 adjectives. The students "Do you have any __ ones?" If you do click the appropriate letter on the grid (there's a cheatsheet attached). The students need to figure out along which dimensions things are varying. For example, the first one (sunglasses) varies by size and colour (yellow -> green). Every time you show them a new item, click the obama silhouette to see how he feels. If he looks excited, they're almost there. They need to guess the one additional adjective by asking, "Do you have any ____, ____, _____ ones?"

The first one is "big, green, shiny ones?"
They should already know that they're big and green because when you click the obama silhouette on the big green glasses, he'll look excited (he usually looks bored).

If a team asks "Do you have..." and my answer is yes, I give a point as long as we haven't already seen that item.

If they guess the full 3 adjective one, I give them 3 points. To go to that slide, click the smiling obama

I hope that makes sense...

I don't have any materials yet, just the idea. For the second part, using "Feel free to..." I thought of a card game.

I call it "No more Mr.Nice Guy." In teams each student will get 4 "feel free" cards. There will be a pile of situation cards in the middle.

Each student takes turns at picking up a situation card. Example: "My phone battery is dead."

If anyone has the card saying "feel free to borrow my phone" then they give that card to the student.

The aim is to get rid of all of your "feel free" cards.

That's it.

Feel free to try it out. Just type up 15-20 situations and the matching "feel free to" statements. Some could even work with more than one so it isn't so forced.

IE. "Wow. You have Starcraft 2" and "I love playing soccer" could both work with "feel free to play with us."
