Language Resident Name: Julien Moniz
Day and Date: 1/27
Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): FR 13
Class theme/topics discussed: News and Fake News Report
Goal of the class: Learn about the vocabulary of the news and get to the students to work in pair in preparing a fun skit.
How did you structure the class?
First we watch a random news report. ( here the introduction of the euro currency back in 2002) Then we review so vocabulary starting with what the students already know. Then I give them additional vocabulary. Then they have 30 min to come up with a skit. They will present it next class to the rest of the students.
What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)
Youtube + a vocabulary sheet from Amherst College.
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
The skits at the end were really good and I think the students had fun writing and acting them. Definitely a schedule of activity I will reuse with a different theme.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
It is hard to come up with an efficient and interactive way to introduce vocabulary so going through a voc. Sheet was really the best way it could be done fast and efficiently.
If you have a more detailed lesson plan, please attach it below (OK to use target language for that). Please attach any handouts as well.
