Graduation W10
W10 Book was designed to welcome the intermediate students and introduce them to an advanced level of expression in the English Language
Main Targets of the Book
To help the students feel comfortable communicating in English, whether giving or receiving information, without the constant aid of a dictionary
To refine students' vocabulary by acquiring a significant amount of new words, phrasal verbs and idioms
In addition, to teach the students how to paraphrase what they are already able to say with a higher level of accuracy and sophistication
W10 Students will be exposed to a great variety of text genres and usage of the English Language
So, the students need to be instructed how to identify and know when and where to select one or another way of saying something
TEACHERS

The vocabulary and content in general of the Book have been carefully chosen from the language that is most used in English, so that the students will need considerably LESS effort in order to memorize new words and structures
The Teacher must motivate his/her W10 students by recommending them watching series, movies and news, listening to songs, keeping in touch with native English-speaking people, etc.
Graduation (W10) implies that the student will have reached a level of Fluency in English comparable to the B2/C1 in the Common European Framework
Scanning Reading Technique
Used when you want to locate a single fact or specific bit of information without reading every single word
Fast way to find info
Often done with material that you know something about
TIPS

Look at the title, subtitle, illustrations, what can make you understand the text easily
With clue words in mind, start reading the text; don't get distracted by unrelated words or info
Accuracy is just as important as speed
Once found information, please check that you are correct
High speed is useful if you find the exact information you need
Skimming Reading Technique
Get main idea not the details
May leave 1/2 to 3/4 paragraph once you have the main idea of
Comprehension is lower; try to understand as much as you can at an average speed
Twice as fast
Usually done with material you know nothing about
PS: As speed increases, comprehension decreases
TIPS

Authors usually give an intro in the first few paragraphs so, read them leaving nothing out at your top speed
So only by the 4th or 5th paragraph you may read only the key sentences to get the idea
Let your eyes jump ahead, picking one or two important words, sentences, etc.
The final paragraphs often summarize the subject so they may be worthwhile to read
Graduation W10
Class Procedures
Input Lessons
2 hours for L241 (as usual)
Communicate with the students ONLY in English
The odd lessons always start with a text. For this exercise, you have to follow these procedures:

1. Ask the students to close their books and listen to the audio material recorded for the text (Teacher plays the CD)

2. Ask the students the following questions (these questions are going to be used throughout the W10 Book):

What is the title of the text?
What is its main topic?
What percentage of the text did you understand?
Which new words did you hear but still don't know?
Where could this text be displayed or read?
What group of people would be interested in the information this text contains?
What's the main message of this text?

PS: Write these questions on the board and make sure the students have written them down. This is the script students should follow whenever they are preparing for an Input Lesson.
3. Play the audio material once more and now have STDs listen and read in silence

4. Start an open conversation about the information in the text and present the reading techniques: Scan & Skim

5. Divide the STDs into pairs or groups of three

6. Give the STDs a few minutes to read the text

7. Ask one of the pairs or groups to summarize the text in theirs own words

8. Now they have read the text more than once, ask one of them a question that demands they report a passage from the text exactly the way it is
Always start the Lesson with the Homework (HW) Correction
Discuss and Define

1. Tell the STDs to go to the next page and look at the exercise

2. Read the words and have them repeat in unison

3. Start an open conversation so that they can come up with some definitions or synonyms. Give example using those words to help them
Input Sentences

1. Play the audio material for the first two blocks of sentence; STDs repeat in unison

2. Present the words in bold in terms of base forms (e.g.: verbs in the infinitive form, expressions in their original form)

3. Ask the STDs to give their own examples with the new words

4. Play the audio material for the third block; STDs repeat in unison; this is going to be the presentation to the Grammar topic of the lesson

5. Ask the STDs to figure out what the topic is; give some examples to clarify the use of it

PS: Give them opportunity to ask questions they might have about the text, new words acquired, expressions or grammar.
Next, go to the sentences in the TG (We have only 2 out of 3 model exercises in each odd lesson):

1. Practice: The sentences use the new words and grammar topics in varied contexts and the STDs are asked to replace certain words or expressions with the extensions given by the teacher

2. Paraphrasing: Each sentence should be repeated by the STDs in unison. The teacher repeats the word or phrase that needs to be replaced with one of the new words. Teacher chooses one STD at random to form the new structure and then all the STDs repeat it

3. Change the sentences according to the model: The teacher exemplify very clearly what the roles are in order to guarantee the success of the activity; follow the model given in the book carefully.


The teacher ends the lesson with:

1. Express Yourself
Play the audio material
STDs repeat in unison
Explore the meaning and give them time to memorize
