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.
Pre-class activities focus mainly on vocabulary, In the first exercise, students need to complete the provided sentences with the correct names of body parts. This way they will get to know fixed phrases such as toss one’s hair, clap one’s hands, stick one’s tongue out, etc. All these phrases appear in the speech. Next, students work on another vocabulary task. They have to rewrite sentences using the words in brackets. Again, all the words/phrases come from the video. Finally, students watch the video and answer three comprehension questions.
In-class activities start with a discussion about the speech and poetry in general. However, before moving to the discussion, you might want to check whether students did their homework and understand vocabulary from the worksheet. Make your students work in pairs. Give each of them three cards and ask them to show them to their partners. The other person has to guess what their partner is showing them.
Then, students have to work in pairs and prepare a different list: A) Three things they should have learned by now; B) Three things that they know to be true. Next, they have to exchange their lists and ask their partners follow-up questions about things on the lists. To extend this task (and practice reported speech), you can make your students change partners and report to them what their previous partners told them.
