WARM-UP & VIDEO
The lesson starts with a warm-up activity. Students look at the pictures and say what they all have in common. The pictures feature wrapping paper, a paper contract, wallpaper, and paper bills. After that, students discuss questions about how they use paper in their lives. Then, students work with vocabulary. They complete the definitions with words from the word cloud (e.g. invoice, digitalize, convert, restore, etc.). After working with vocabulary, students move on to a video. First, they choose the correct definition of ‘document management’. Then, they watch the video and check their answer. Students also complete the summary of the video with the vocabulary they learned before. They watch the video again and tick the words they hear. After that, students move on to a grammar part and learn how to use the suffixes ‘-ful’ and ‘-less’.
SUFFIXES ‘-FUL’ AND ‘-LESS’
In this part of the lesson, students work on some word building and have a discussion. First, they look at the summary again and find the words ending with ‘-ful’ or ‘-less’. Students explain their meaning and also say what the differences between the suffixes are. Then, they look at more words (e.g. paper, care, use, point) and decide to which of them they can add the suffixes ‘-ful’ and ‘-less’. After that, students complete the statements with the words they formed. They also read the statements again and agree or disagree with them. To wrap up the lesson, students think about their workplace or industry and discuss the questions. They talk about going paperless, storing documents, and making their workplace more efficient.
This lesson also includes an additional task that you can use as homework or revision. In the task, students brainstorm ideas and create arguments for and against going paperless. 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.
