Hey peeps,

I dont have to follow the book exactly, i just loosely follow the topics. Here is one on occupations and job interviews for the first lesson in section 3.

I teach the high level group so i wanted to teach them some jobs they probably wouldnt know already (they must do occupations every year!)

Plan:
1. Brainstorm the occupations they know on the board.
2. Go through Ppt with new ones.
3. Get them to do the worksheet.

5. Introduce the concept of a job interview - ask what kind of questions they might be asked etc.
6. Go through ppt of interview Qs.
7. Do example interview (i said i want to be a teacher and got a st to ask me the Qs (which were still on the screen)
8. Split them into groups of 3. Each st chooses a job to apply for and the other 2 interview them. Then swap.
9. Choose some to demonstrate to class - ask if they got the job and why etc.

My poor kids are struggling with the awesome-ness of their textbook so I tried to do something a little different.

I did this lesson with my other middle school last year. It's about Dirty Jobs that included clips from America's TV Show - Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe. To end the lesson, I had students make a "dirty job" for me. Since Unit 4 talks about jobs, I figured it was somewhat relevant.

My kids are very high-level  so I made them write up job descriptions.

My boys are a nightmare to teach.  I wrote the word "future" on the board and asked them to define it and what they will do in the future. Then we looked at some examples of things we would do.  (I found the ppt on waygook but made tiny changes) and then we played a game.

hey guys, made this minesweeper game to practice giving reasons...check it before play in class ^^

its pretty easy to play

get the students to say the character name
you can say part b or get them to do all of the dialog
then press on the button, should either come up with a point or bomb
put them into teams

can get pretty competitive

i only did two areas...if you want to add your own reasons you taught you can, just adjust accordingly ^^
thanks rufus for template

Remove one block at a time and it will reveal parts of the picture, the aim of the game is to get the students to guess the images before all the blocks are removed.

TIP: If the guess correctly with only a few blocks removed - Hold th down arrow key and it will reveal the full picture ^^

what i did was just use use it as a quick recap at the start of class, furiously click the mouse and have the kids call out the job and earn a point for their team. If you want to give extra points, let them use it in a sentence.

Hey everyone!
Thanks to so many of you for your excellent contributions. They've been a huge asset to me this semester. Because of exams and our school trip, my students just started Lesson 4 today. I adapted the idea of job cards from another poster here (from like a year back, so I don't have the name to credit...) and made my own game with them.

The goal of the game is to end up with one of the Top 5 happiest jobs according to a university (of Chicago) study. Don't tell them what those jobs are.

1. Pass out a card to each student (The school printer ended up shorting me some of my cards... maybe destroyed in the laminating process, so I did not give cards to some of the best students and told them they were starting the game without a dream job). There are 30 cards in the set, so if you want to avoid this you can print the 3rd sheet twice)
2. When you give the word, students can stand up and challenge one another. After both saying: "I want to be a/an __________ (whatever their current card is) , they play Rock Paper Scissors. The winner of the game can choose to switch cards with the loser or keep their card. Students without a card get to take the others'. Students cannot challenge each other more than once.
3. Let them go however long you like, then reveal the (I gave a short disclaimer on how this is just one study of American workers) happiest jobs, they are:

1. Firefighter
2. Travel agent
3. Mechanic
4. Architect
5. Teacher

The leading job in the survey was actually clergy, but I axed it to avoid controversy and an unnecessary vocabulary word.

Give a reward to students who are holding those cards.
Not sure if this will be of use to anybody this year, but maybe next time around!

...I opened up that job card file on my computer again today and somehow it got all jumbled between when I printed it and when it got uploaded. They did reinstall office here in between, so I hope that's it and that it worked for others.

Just for future use, I'm uploading a slightly edited version of the Can You Tell Me Why? Minesweeper Game. It was a huge help. I just switched the order of the areas, replaced the characters with famous Koreans in (now) Area 1, and added words above the reason pictures to help my low-levels.

I took the Annoying Orange game from another user and changed it to fit Lesson 4. I will use this at the start of Lesson 5 to review Lesson 4.

I haven't done this yet but I will play MASH with students tomorrow.  It can be a good warm-up or filler at the end.

Do an example with one or two students on the board then have them play with each other and predict their futures.

You can choose categories like jobs, number of children, university, transportation, country where they'll live.

Let the person whose future is being predicted choose 2 good choices and let the predictor choose one unenviable choice for each category.

A lot of material came from other posters; I may have changed some things to suit my students.
