Productivity- A Conversation Class
English Education Lab
A worksheet intended to prompt students to discuss the subject of the productivity while building vocabulary and overall speaking skills.
Teacher can begin lesson by eliciting vocabulary words/phrases, etc. students associate with the word "productivity". Teacher can write student's ideas on the board for the class.
Teacher can then introduce the "productivity" worksheet (individual copies are best so students can have the opportunity to write notes should they choose so.)
Typically, teacher chooses one or multiple students to read new vocabulary and definitions aloud. This is a good opportunity to elicit other forms of the vocabulary words from students. Each of the listed words (or a form of each words) will be used in the discussion questions as well as the fill in the blank activity, giving students another chance to consolidate new vocabulary. Teacher can then either move onto the discussion questions or the fill in the blank activity.
Teacher should encourage students to use the target vocabulary in the discussion questions while encouraging them to speak as much as possible! If students would like to elaborate on a question- encourage them! Teacher can write new vocabulary words that arise during the discussion on board or can make suggestions for new vocabulary words that can be used in context. This is also an opportunity to allow other students to chime in with their thoughts and ideas regarding the questions. The aim of the fill in the blank activity is to ensure students have understood target vocabulary (including subsequent forms) and to give them an opportunity to practise using them in context.
Teacher can at this point ask students to make their own sentences using target vocabulary or can ask them to write out their answer to one of the discussion questions.
