This lesson is for L&S1: careers and interests

The PPT isn't perfect (it's my first time making a PPT without being able to use any other lessons in this textbook thread as inspiration), and I personalised it with some of my own info/pictures but I hope it helps someone :)

I got the personality worksheet from a lesson plan in another thread, pretty self-explanatory (you need to print a worksheet for each s in the class).

The cards for the game at the end can be found at http://www.mes-english.com/games/bigtown.php. I also printed out some blanks so that students could make their own characters.

I just found a mistake in my PPT, 'So, I wanted to be AN Airforce pilot' not A Airforce pilot. Not that it really matters I suppose, you'll probably have to change the career on that slide anyway  :P

Just a heads up, this is nearly identical to the Haas book, Gr Lesson 10, my hopes and dreams.  You might be able to mine material from there.  I know I have a bunch of stuff from last year, but locating it is not arduous at best.

I guess maybe I am thick, but how exactly do you do the worksheet.
I understand the outcome, but how do you get the students to circle the yes and no?
I could get them to do the first line, do you like helping people, helping animals, traveling, etc., but how do you get them to do all 11 without telling them the job ahead of time?  And if you tell them the job ahead of time, they choose it because they believe they want to do that rather than because the yeses and nos chose for them.  Does that make sense?

I got it.  It's not very intuitive, but it worked out.
Rather than working across, they work down then across.
Circle the yeses they agree with, and basically X out all the rest.

Count the circles, highest number is the job you should do (and those jobs are listed in the ppt.)

Both of these worksheets worked *really well today, and the one that breaks down the 3 verbs, Leisure Time, there were *lots of "Aha!" and "Wow!" moments from students, like they finally felt something click.  It was fantastic.

For the Leisure time one, I followed the plan that came with it.
I wrote Verbs                                       Sport
             Go                           
             Play
             Do
on the board, and after we completed the worksheets, we went over them and then I had them tell me which sports went where and wrote them in.

Then I asked what each had in common.  Starting at play, they instantly saw it was teams.  We went from there and it rocked.

I needed a filler, so I will review 8 and 9 tomorrow and finish with this for 9.  It works (very simply) with the listen and speak parts of the text in chapter 9 with things like:
What are you interested in - I am interested in science.
I want to be                       - a scientist.
etc.

There's only 2 applicable slide for this, the other initial slides being warm up / practice slides that came with the template.

I do Listen and Speak 1 as a separate lesson from L&S 2 so my intro ppt just focuses on "What are you interested in?" I used a lot of things from the previous posts but I changed some things and added kpop related pictures (there's also a picture of my students on slide 19 so you might want to change that). Then I did some stuff from the workbook and the activity I have is a fill in the blank sheet based on a worksheet in one of the previous posts but I changed the dialogue to specifically talk about interests. I had the students ask four different people for the answers (so ask one student about Chris, the next student about Kate, etc). Then I had them answer some questions on the ppt based on the answers they got.

Here's what I did for L&S2. My ppt has a lot of review slides for part 1 what are you interested in (my kids particularly liked the webtoons and anime slides) and then I have things for "What do you want to be in the future?" Then for the activity I used a lot of things from the previous posts so thanks to the person who made the job for you quiz! I added a lot of kpop related things for the answers and added some lines for them to write what job they got and if they agreed or not and why.

Took this LOL bomb game from the Haas thread but added a variety of questions and fixed some grammar and spelling mistakes.

The questions about the ice cream taster and the crab fisherman come from Leo's ppt that I used for this lesson. http://www.waygook.org/index.php?topic=21127.0

Part A - we started part A watching a go-pro video of mountain biking (anything scary / crazy gets their attention – I used  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x76VEPXYaI0) to get them into the theme of hobbies. The worksheet took up quite a lot of time – they had to ask questions to all the students at their table. We did hobbies hotseat for the last 15 mins or so.

Part B
- we went through some job names, did the bookwork and worksheet, and then went through the Dirty, Dangerous and Dream Jobs part of the PPT (again adapted taken from Leo’s PPT on jobs http://www.waygook.org/index.php?topic=21127.0). For each one I streamed the video, and they told me what they thought of the jobs. The game is a board game, where they move by playing rock paper scissors in their groups.

Activity for part 1 - what are you interested in.  Hidden picture game.

Divide into teams.  First team chooses one letter.  They try to answer the question in a full sentence based off of what they see with that letter missing.  If they can't, the next team chooses a letter, etc.  If this explanation is unclear, this is an activity I found on this site so it's probably explained better somewhere else.  I just changed the pictures and key expressions.

Just as a warning to new teachers, I did the personality quiz lesson last year and this year again and it is seriously the most frustrating lesson to explain ever.  Last year my coteacher walked out of the room so I was trying to explain it by myself and the kids' brains were just exploding.  It worked better in the other classes where she actually showed up but it was frustrating getting to that point.

So this year I added a ton more explanation in my powerpoint.  I emphasized that we would go through together and added step 1, step 2, step 3 and explanations, etc.  Everyone was baffled, but more than most was my coteacher (a different one from last year).  She doesn't like to lose face by admitting she doesn't know what's going on, so she was instructing them to answer the questions on the bottom before we even went through making the circles and stuff so I had to work against that.  As I slowly explained and went around showing kids what to do she kept coming at me demanding to know what the difference was with the blanks on the side and I kept saying those are where the results go AT THE END, and I got so frustrated with her not listening and trying to jump ahead and lead the activity while not understanding it that I actually raised my voice to her.

I think it's a great activity, but if everyone you deal with is as low level as everyone I deal with it's very difficult.  I would've done a different activity if I could find one but I couldn't really.

This lesson plan is heavily based on all the others found in this thread on waygook. I just tweaked it a little bit to suit my classes.
In my class, the teacher has already been teaching the chapter, so it's really me just giving them extra time to practise it.
Also, it needs to be noted that I only have 8 students in this class.

Lesson 1
1st: Presentation of key expressions and practised with pp presentation.
2nd: Explained and went through work sheet together
3rd: Did drawing activity. ( In retrospect I should have made the kids only do two drawings because this took forever and they did not even finish it. That or I should have been more strict about enforcing the time limit).

Lesson 2
1st: Played a warm-up game of whiteboard relay (The instructions in pp)
2nd: Quick review of last week
3rd: I gave the kids 10 minutes to complete the drawing activity and then they presented. (In reality, this took more like 15 min)
4th: We went through the worksheet. Sadly because of completing last weeks activity, we did not have time to play my last game of Pictionary, but all weelllllllllll.
