Hello all and welcome to another post and video about planning lessons from a course book. In the video below, I share my thought process and ideas about particular stages of a lesson. I think it is good to share the ideas and the rationale behind this process with the (albeit rather long) video.
The course book that I was using was Move Pre-Intermediate – I haven’t used this for around a year so it was refreshing to remind myself of this book. The main topic of the chapter which I selected was about food and the desirability of food based upon colour. It included a reading, discussion and a grammar focus of countable and uncountable nouns.
With the video above, I share some of the ideas of supplementing the course book. These included using a survey as a lead-in/warmer to engage learners about the topic, matching key language (words and images) about food as well as focusing grammar from the language that had been introduced initially and recycling this from the initial survey.
These were my main ideas and they are not exactly great but I am happy to share these with you. I do hope you enjoyed the video, despite the length (and apologies in advance about that), and don’t forget to Subscribe to my YouTube Channel and Liking the video would be wonderful.
Many thanks and happy teaching!!! ?
