Here is another lesson I’ve designed. The topic is about advertisement. In this class, the students practice how to become a sales-promotion person whose job is to promote a particular commercial product. It is obvious, then, that the teaching objective is how to enhance students’ speaking skill.
In the “engage phase”, teacher shows some pictures related to the topic such as homepage, advertisement, email, notices & cautions, chatting room, social media, etc. asking students the functions of each picture in modern life. The students give some feedback and get comments from the teacher.
One of the important keys to successful teaching is a sound preparation aided by a good lesson plan. Harmer (2007, 156) says, “For students, evidence of a plan shows that the teacher has devoted time to thinking about the class.” A lesson plan indicates the level of teachers’ professionalism and commitment in conducting their jobs.
