In this lesson, students work with some easily confused words, practise the use of prepositions, and watch a video about micro-influencers. They also have a discussion about the effect, impact and influence that we experience in different areas of life.
PREPOSITIONS & VIDEO
At the beginning of the lesson, students share their opinions about influencers and discuss the experience they’ve had with them. After that, students read five sentences and decide on the correct use of prepositions (e.g. reach out, in touch, excited about). Then, they discuss if they agree with the statements. Afterwards, students read a short text about being an influencer and complete the gaps with words from the box (e.g. authentic, captions). Finally, they watch a video about micro-influencers. After watching the first part of the video, they discuss what the term ‘micro-influencer’ means. While watching the second part of the video, they decide if six statements are true or false. Before watching the third part of the video, students discuss the reasons behind the micro-influencer trend and watch the end of the video to check their answers.
EASILY CONFUSED WORDS & DISCUSSION
In this part of the lesson, students discuss the video and decide why the difference between an influencer and a micro-influencer might be important. Then, they read three statements and complete rules about the use of some easily confused words from the video (e.g. effect, influence, impact, affect). In the next task, they read six sentences with the words and correct the mistakes they find in them. The mistakes are mostly related to the use of prepositions. Next, students look at six pairs of words and phrases, and discuss what the connection between them might be (e.g. lack of sleep – productivity). Finally, the teacher can choose to ask students a set of questions to practice the use of prepositions or as revision. The questions are related to things that have impact or affect people in some way.
