WARM-UP & VIDEO
The Speaking Class starts with a warm-up. There is an optional activity for teachers to do before the main discussion. They can ask students to name different things related to books and reading (e.g. positive/negative characters, a series of books, a book that was made into a film, a book with a happy ending, etc.). There is also another warm-up activity in the worksheet. Students read the statistics and decide whether they are true or false. Students can also discuss whether any of the facts surprised them. Then, there is a speaking activity which provides students with a chance to talk about books and their experiences. Students also mention reading paper books. After that, they move on to the activities related to a video. First, students complete the statement about book lovers with their ideas. Then, they watch the video and add more ideas.
ACTIVITIES TO TALK ABOUT BOOKS
In this part of the lesson, students talk about books more. First, they look at some reading habits (e.g. make notes in a book or keep a book clean and neat, buy books from bookshops or buy books online, read on public transport or read at home or in a quiet place, etc.) and choose the ones that are relevant to them. Then, students discuss ideas on how to encourage people to read more. They talk about literature at school, reading habit trackers, YouTube channels with book reviews and book clubs. Students discuss each idea by answering questions. Finally, students look at different campaigns that promote reading and decide whether they are good. Students finish the lesson with a brainstorming session during which they read some situations and come up with ideas on how to help.
