Transcript of Engage-study-Activate
According to Harmer (2013), teaching should use the best elements of different ideas and methods, but must include certain characteristics:
Engage – Study – Activate
Students focus on
(the language, how the language is used, how the language sounds or looks).
Students use all and any language appropriate for a given topic--
rehearsal for the real world
Activation can include:
Debates and discussions
Describe and draw
Story and poem writing
Writing in groups
Example Lesson Plans
Students should be emotionally engaged, curious, passionate, and involved.
Jessica & Moldir
Can follow these formats:
Discovery (students figure out the rules themselves)
After reading a passage, students ask about language units they want to focus on
Straight Arrow Sequence-
new generation robots
Students watch a short video clip or look at pictures of robots. They talk about whether they like or dislike the idea of creating robots.
Teacher puts a picture of a robot on the projector. T presents ‘can’ and ‘can’t’. They make drills in chorus or individually. Ss are involved in a controlled activity where they try to focus on the meaning of the language.
Ss work in groups to create their own new generation robot. They make presentations on what their robot can or can’t do.
Ss discuss what issues interviewees face. What makes interviewee successful?
T gives Ss an interview situation to act out. While Ss are doing the role play, T makes note of errors and language challenges that Ss face.
After the role play, T draws Ss’ attention to the vocabulary and grammar errors made during their role play. Then Ss can work on a controlled practice activity.
Ss role play another interview. This time Ss are expected to make fewer errors.
sunscreen radio commercial
Engage -> Activate-
Ss discuss a picture of sunbathers then act out a dialogue of a sunburn victim and doctor.
Ss read a text about the effect of sun on different skin types, then discuss how they feel.
Class works on comprehension and pronunciation of vocabulary words such as “pale,” “fair-skinned,” “freckles,” “tan,” etc.
Ss describe themselves or others using the language from the text.
T helps Ss focus on relative clause construction, as was used in the text. Ss practice “who” clauses (ex: "I’m the type of person who always burns").
T and Ss discuss advertisements. How do they achieve their effect?
Ss write a radio commercial for sunscreen, then record it using sound effects and music.
