TEACHER’S GUIDE


This paper provides some guidelines that we hope can be useful to foreign language teachers. The main purpose of this work is to develop the four skills: listening, speaking, reading and writing. At the end of this unit, there is a test that consists of questions to value the students in different skills.

UNIT STRUCTURE

READING: 

Start making questions about the subject that will be taught because it is an introductory activity that focus on the language of the text;

Read the text and after that ask same student to read it again to motivate the participation;

Make questions about the text to check their comprehension, for example, WH questions, multiple choice's exercises, true or false exercises, Crossword.

WRITING: 

Elaborate exercises with WH questions, for example, to guide the student to create his own text (Guided Composition);

Give some tips about the subject to help them develop their ideas.

Ask some students to go to the blackboard to give their answers.


SPEAKING: 

Introduce

the

topic

of

the

lesson

giving

a

reason

for

communicating; 

Ask the students to form groups or pairs and show them an example of how do the exercises. (Say that they will make questions and answer to each other about the theme);

Let them give their opinions and interact with their partners.

LISTENING: 

Use a podcast to let the students listen it for about three times and then ask them to do the exercises that involve making sense of the meaningful sounds of language in a context.

Make questions about the listening exercise to check their level of comprehension (if they

understood the main idea of the text or

not, if they comprehended some details or not, if they perceived some specific information or not).

GRAMAR IN FOCUS: 

Use grammar together with fixation exercises.

We hope that this teaching unit can contribute with second language teachers to prepare their own classes. It is clear that it is subject to complementations and the teachers can promote changes and to work it of different form.
