The main objectives of this lesson are to:
- learn and practise idioms and phrases with on,
- brainstorm ideas and explain why they could be effective.
Students watch two ads and brainstorm slogans for ad campaigns using English idioms and phrases with on. They also work with the target language by adding information to general contexts and responding to various situations in an additional task.
ENGLISH IDIOMS AND PHRASES WITH ON
At the beginning of the lesson, students watch the first ad and guess a missing word in an idiom. Students complete gaps in sentences using English idioms and phrases with on (e.g. on the flip side, on the off chance, on the safe side). They also need to decide what might have happened before the situations described in the sentences. After that, students look at ten categories containing phrases with on and come up with one thing for each. They can also guess each other’s categories while providing answers.
At this point, you can choose to do an additional task which is available in the teacher’s version of the worksheet and in the e-lesson plan (in skipped slides). In it, students need to decide what they would say in various situations using given English idioms and phrases with on. You can also choose to do the task at the end of the lesson or as revision.
In this part of the lesson, students watch the second ad and explain what the slogan ‘Join the flip side’ means and why they think the company created it. Then, they look at four slogans containing English idioms and phrases with on and discuss which product, service or campaign each slogan would promote most effectively. Finally, students look at photos which are part of marketing campaigns and brainstorm the products or services they might advertise. Students also need to consider what the ideas behind the campaigns might be. They also need to come up with slogans using phrases with on.
This lesson also includes an additional task that you can use as homework or revision. In the task, students practise English idioms and phrases with on. The task is available in the teacher’s version of the worksheet. You can print it and hand it out to your students. It’s also included in the e-lesson plan.
