It is a two-hour lesson but depending on the students could vary.
Planning a series of different activities on a single theme helps move a class from short idea-building conversations to more involved discussion or debate in which they have more freedom to express themselves and build their spoken confidence. It also helps break the topic down into more manageable sections.
Lesson plan: guide for teacher on procedure including worksheet tasks.
Worksheets: four downloadable worksheet exercises which can be printed out for use in class.
- Worksheet A - One copy per pair
- Worksheet B - One copy per pair
- Worksheet C - One for each group of four
- Worksheet D - One copy for each pair
Pictures of famous people, to suit the class, I recommend 6 to 8
Names of famous people (try to vary it), maybe two for each student in the class (see Stage 8 for information).
