Part 1 of lesson. Focuses on "Can/Could you explain _____"

PPT is rough.

ppt - 5-7
book 10-15
game - rest of class.

game: decode the code. give each student a code. (they are words). give each student an uncoded letter. they have to go around asking each other if they can explain any of the symbols. I only used letters a-p (16 letters so there should be 1-2 of them floating around the class) and made 32 four letter words. I figured it would take too long otherwise.

first 5 people can get candy but if the entire class can decode their slips before the times up, can finish class early/music video. in my case, I give them study time because they have a test coming up. - have to make sure that even after they decoded the word, they keep playing because they carry a decoded letter.

*edit* #8 is meant to be 'pond' but it read 'pjnd' so I edited it.
note: just played for the first time today - game goes a lot faster than anticipated - just around 15 to explain and have the entire class finish.

As I have only just started looking online for materials for this lesson, I probably should wait to post, but here you can find a worksheet that might prove helpful:

I took an "asking advice" template I found on waygook (not sure of the OP- sorry!) and adapted it to fit the language of this lesson.

And the instructions ppt is Jurassic Park/Word themed....because dinosaurs.   :P

My lesson takes the whole period. Adapt it to fit however long you need it for.

*Speaking Korean: my co-teach and I walk around with red markers. If we hear a word of Korean we slash their beautiful art work amidst many wails, moans, and gnashing of teeth. Haha, we just make a big mark on their paper, ruining the aesthetic. Anyway, we take the number of marks into account when picking a winner. Keeps them all using English the entire period. #winning

First, I wrote this sentence on the board: "Texting is destroying language and making us stupid. Do you agree with me?"I gave them some time to think about it, and then asked for their opinions. Also on the board were a bunch of common abbreviations and emoticons. I asked if they could explain them to me. Then, we made Text Lingo Dictionaries. (See pics)

Next class we will play Text Lingo Bingo as a warm up. Then I will give them time to write secret messages in their groups.  Other groups will use their dictionaries to decode the message.

I took jjl059's original PPT (thanks for that) and added the 2nd Key Expression "Do you know what I mean?", as well as, some texting acronyms from the book.
I also included a mini-worksheet that follows the PPT for studying purposes for the final.

These are my lessons for this topic. The powerpoints are extremely self-explanatory. Since we are still using this old book in 2016 I hope this helps someone. Update any pictures of celebrities and delete any pictures of me there please ^^
