This lesson plan about fame includes some related vocabulary as well as adjectives + prepositions that B1 students will learn and use in speaking.
First, as a warm‐up, students have to brainstorm what comes into their minds when they hear the word fame. To do this task, you can make students work in pairs or groups, if possible. Next, they learn some related vocabulary. They read a few sentences and match the underlined words and phrases to the meanings given. The task is based around the following words and phrases: follow, stare, be in the public eye, the centre of attention, well-known. Then, they discuss a few questions that include the vocabulary from the previous exercise and serve as a lead‐in to a video.
Students have to do two listening comprehension tasks. In the first one, they just need to watch the video and answer general questions about famous people featured there as well as how they feel about being famous. Next, they watch the video again and match sentences to correct people. Finally, they move to a discussion about fame, celebrities and the dark sides of being famous.
ADJECTIVES & PREPOSITIONS
The last part of this lesson plan about fame is built around nine adjectives and the prepositions that usually go with them. First, students have to complete questions with correct prepositions. After checking the answers, students discuss the questions (they all concern the topic of fame). What’s more, students get homework. Their task is to find five more adjectives that go with the prepositions from the previous exercise (about, for, of, to, with) and write sentences with them.
