This is a Flipped Classroom lesson plan. In a nutshell, it means that the first part of the lesson needs to be done by students at home. Learn more about flipped classroom and how we implement it in these lesson plans in our post.
The pre‐class worksheet starts with a short vocabulary exercise. Students read some sentences with the phrases in the red and in the black, and their task is to come up with their definitions. Next, they watch a short video about the history of the term Black Friday. First, they need to mark the sentences true or false. Then, they move to another listening comprehension task. This time, they need to complete sentences from the video with words they hear. In the video, your students will learn the origins of the name Black Friday.
Vocabulary & listening comprehension
The in‐class part starts with a short discussion about the video and the term Black Friday. In this lesson plan about Black Friday, we also teach students some useful phrases and phrasal verbs connected with shopping. To do that, students read a few dialogues and match words and phrases in bold to their meanings. The task includes, e.g. splash out, rip off, savvy shopper, etc. Next, students watch the second video and discuss questions which include the vocab from the previous task.
Finally, the lesson plan ends with two tasks on words for showing differences (even though, despite, while, etc.). Students study the table and practise using the language. Then, they have to discuss some related topics and try to use the words for showing differences.
