How do you write….

Standard

Hey everyone;

I have a question for you all:

How do you write a lesson plan using this information? (I am aiming at Intermediate/Advanced Students)

Bermuda Triangle

Label the stages of your lesson plan and be sure to include the following information:

What activities would you do before you have the students watch the video?
What vocabulary would you pre-teach and why? (Please list at least 6 words and explain your choices)
What ‘while viewing’ tasks would you use in your first viewing of the video?
What ‘while viewing tasks’ would you use in your second viewing of the video?
What post viewing tasks could you use? Please mention at least 3.

Here is how I have written it:

PRE-VIEWING:

What activities would you do before you have the students watch the video?

As a class we could carry out a brief discussion on the topic of the Bermuda Triangle; if need be watch a piece of the video. We could also brainstorm some vocabulary what we all may think will be used within the video.

What vocabulary would you pre-teach and why? (Please list at least 6 words and explain your choices)

The vocabulary I would probably pre-teach would be:

  • any technical terms used within the video (Naval terms – hands, dead reckoning, military ranks)
  • wallowing
  • perished
  • reputation
  • deceptively
  • unexpectedly

I have chosen these six words/terms because the students could use most of the words when using their written work. The technical terms not as much in “everyday life” but it would help them understand who was who throughout the video

WHILST VIEWING:

What ‘while viewing’ tasks would you use in your first viewing of the video?

I would ask them to think how they would feel if they were in the Bermuda Triangle; make some notes if possible.  Students can fill in the blanks with vocabulary they heard in the pre-viewing tasks or the students can listen for examples of grammatical structures and note them down.

What ‘while viewing tasks’ would you use in your second viewing of the video?

I would ask the students to now ‘think out of the box’ and write down what they would have done in that situation

POST VIEWING:

What post viewing tasks could you use? Please mention at least 3.

Language Use:

I would get the students to write a ‘diary entry’ for one of the characters within the video – if needed; give them an example or a template to complete

Project:

I could get the students to complete a project to find more information on the Bermuda Triangle using the internet. Finding any stats or images.

Production:

I could ask the students can be asked to draw characters from the video or ask them to create a character that was upon the boat.
