This project is my very first upload to tpt as a paid product. I had intentions to release it on the 1st December, unfortunately however, I twisted a spinal nerve and I have not been able to sit at the computer in the last week to finish the project off in time.
I certainly hope that you like the “book chat” lesson. Please do leave comments regarding what I could improve on and the like. I am so thankful that you purchased it, and I do hope that you find use for it in your lessons.
### Stay tuned, I have over a hundred more topics coming next year and beyond.
These lessons are designed with a backdrop of: four language skill use, increase vocabulary, grammar is presented inductively (unless there is a real need for explicit grammar rule explanations), access the eight multiple intelligences, community inclusion, and English language and English culture exposure. Australian language and culture is present where warranted, such as the book club TV show episode, but there is hardly anything uniquely Australian about books because books are of course, universal.
The first two pages: offer conversational questions that ought to be a guide to what to talk about ‘books’. A coffee shop conversation.
These pages maybe presented one-on-one, or to groups.
Often, as the teacher, from the first two pages, you will find out what your students do or do not know about books.
These two pages alone could cover 30 minutes of a lesson - or longer.
The following three pages are based on reading and speaking skills. A one page article is followed up with comprehension questions: literal, interpretive, and applied, and conversational questions and content expansion.
Book idioms are used interchangeably throughout daily language, and the book idiom exercise is merely to attend to explicit grammar structure and the like.
The media presentation is a a short seven minute viewing of an Australian book club TV show discussing Watership Down, with two follow-up worksheets.
