I'm doing a TEFL course and on my final assignment. I need to prepare a 60 minute PPP lesson plan
for a group of intermediate level students (60 of them) and the objective is teaching "making appointments".
I already submitted the assignment for marking once, but although the tutor/assessor said it was a good plan, that I didn't focus enough on the GROUP aspect of it and that all activities should be in group work.
I've got a few ideas - a week to view diary extract and in their groups, they need to make new, reschedule and cancel appointments....Thinking this is Ok for the freer practice/production part.
For the controlled practice, I was thinking to do a group game/competition....ones with the most marks wins. Something along the lines of I read out some dialogue and they have to tell me what I'm doing (making a new appointment/rescheduling/cancelling etc).
I still feel for the length of the lesson though that these will not be enough and was thinking to add a video for them to watch. Is this a bad idea? How could I get it to be a group activity - could I give them a worksheet or something to do complete as a group?
I'm ok with how to group and also plan some drilling for the lead in/presentation stage.
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!
