Here's a lesson on giving directions. You'll need to change the name of my school on the colourful maps to your school's name or to something else entirely. Some of the places on the maps are also Daegu orientated.

I'll probably start by eliciting some names of places e.g. bank, post office, bakery etc and then go through the vocab. I'm undecided about whether I'm going to then give the worksheet to all levels or just to my C level classes. It's not really a worksheet, just the vocab so it's in front of them for the speaking activities. If they get the worksheet I'll make them put it away for the final subway activity. This lesson is pretty much based on something Sara Davilla presented to us at orientation and I took the skeleton of the Powerpoint from someone else on here but edited it heavily.

I think I posted this lesson last year somewhere on Waygook but I've edited it a bit for this year and the vocab sheet is new.

Hope it helps! Comments and suggestions welcome!

This is the lesson I will be using next week. It covers directions and has a giving directions activity at the end. I used it last year and it worked well.

Enders you legend.
My cat has a habit of playing with my USB and has finally destroyed the one with my work from last year on, so this lesson has just saved my bacon.
Thanks a lot.

I spent a whole lesson on page 85 THINK AND WRITE, "A Trip to_______."  Students can either think of a place where they would like to take a trip or write about their favorite trip.  I showed a series of picture of the culture trip to Gyeongju.  It ties in nicely with the topic of a trip to the past and Korean culture.  I tried to illicite an answer by showing pictures from the ppt. and then writing my trip on the blackboard as shown in the textbook. "  Next class, I hope to have them make a  postcard and present to the class.     

                                       A trip to _Gyeongju___
When                                                                                        How

I added these videos as well in the beging of class to get their attention.  My students seemed to enjoy the powerpoint but when asked to do the assignment in the textbook, I have about a 50% success rate.

This is the lesson I am using this week. It is continuing the directions theme to reinforce it. All the material was found here on Waygook and adapted (slightly!!)

My lesson isn't related to the book at all, but it's what I'm teaching this week so I'll link it here.

It's a lesson about giving subway directions (take line 1, transfer at ~ station etc.) My students have quite liked it as it's a bit different from the usual "go straight, turn left" they've been practicing for donkeys years. All the examples in the PPT use stations from my school area (Uiwang, Anyang, Suwon) - if you're nearby and have kids that might benefit from doing something a bit different, give it a shot  :wink:

Lesson is here

Here is a lesson on directions with a worksheet to do with at partner at the end.

I used this at my last middle school with another directions lesson and it went well.  The lessons have the same sentence functions:  How can I get to ...; Go straight two blocks, etc.

I made a worksheet explaining the study points and giving students speaking practice.  In the next lesson I will use my directions game from last year:  one student from each of two groups is blindfolded and has to follow the (increasingly loud) directions given by their group in order to find a piece of candy I have placed somewhere in the classroom.  It's great fun, very boisterous and gets them using the language.

I used these for Grade 6 at my other school but they coincide really well.

I'll probably use Enders PPT for week 1 then some of the following activities for week 2.

Save Princess Peach Game:

Pick 1 Ss to be Mario, they go stand outside the classroom. Pick 1 Ss to be Princess Peach. "Mario" comes back inside and tries to find "Princess Peach" by asking Ss for directions. 4 Ss are chosen to give wrong directions.

One Piece Game:

Bomb game. The layout is really different and the images used are great. Questions go over giving directions, prepositions and places (museum, bank, post office etc.)

I edited some of the other PPTs to make these versions.

Week one: Study places and directions. Worksheet is attached. For the last 10-15 minutes I tried to play hot potato. I said left or right and students move the potato in that direction. When I said STOP, whoever was holding the potato had to answer the question. Some classes enjoyed it and went wild tossing the potato, while others were not amused.

Week two: Review places and directions. Worksheet is attached. Then, do Listen & Speak two. For the last ten minutes of class, I divided students into teams and had them practice spelling on the small whiteboards.

You should double check the Korean in the PPTs and worksheets.
