Lesson plan cover page
Brief description of
context
(time and length of lesson,
size of classroom, type of
furniture (fixed /
moveable), resources
available, etc.)

Time and length


The lesson takes place on Wednesday afternoon
at 10th and 11th period (1.55-3.05)- last lesson of
the day. This 70 minute lesson is usually left with
60 minute because students come from 4
different original classes and I give 3-4 minutes
break in between lesson.

Size of the classroom


It is conducted in the classroom named Argentina
at English Language Centre. Its quite spacious
and can fit about 35 students at a time. Of the
four walls of the classroom, one of it partially
made up of glass, one has windows all along the
wall and another is a whiteboard wall.

Type of furniture
The movable chairs with flexible table tops make
activities easier to conduct. The classroom is
installed with ICT projector and speaker. There
are also air-conditioners, which make the
classroom cool all the time.

Facilities used: the white board cum markers , cd


player

Brief description of
learners
(how many, age, English
level, special needs /
behavioural issues etc.)

My learners are Junior 3 students (J3 Canberra),


who are 15-16 years of age. There are 18 males
and 15 females-total 33 students in the target
class. They are basically from Chinese speaking
background who have little exposure to using the
language other than in the classroom. All of them

CiSELT
Hin Hua High School
are using EIM3 course book which is the
elementary to intermediate level of (CEFR).
However 20% of the students find the book is
quite challenging. I have 5 slow learners in the
class-who always struggle during my lesson. I
also realized that female students are accounted
better practice on learning habits and keen to
learn attitudes compare to the male students.
One of the approaches to learning they typically
adopt is the surface learning approach. They see
course content simply as material to be learnt for
the exam purpose only. However, as they are
interpersonal in nature, they show great interest
in group work most of the time. Few of them in
class like to think out of box when it comes to
presentation which actually drives others to learn
and do better as well.
Majority of the students are well-behaved and
self-motivated. Hence, there are a few boys in
the class who show lack of interest in learning
the language. They tend to do other lessons
work during English class-which I have
reprimanded a few times.
Rationale

Brief description on the activity:

(brief description of the


new idea / activity you are
trying out and why you
chose it think of your
learners needs as well as
your own)

The activity chosen is Vocabulary Bingo Game.


Students work in group of 4 . Teacher divides
them into (Pair A and Pair B). Pair A writes the
words and cross out over the correct vocabulary
in the box (HO).Pair B take turn and call out the
vocabulary definition (from the green strips).
First pair to successfully cross out word in rowshouts BINGO and wins. Students continue the
game by exchanging their role.

The reasons I chose this activity:


1) Motivating, fun and energizing

CiSELT
Hin Hua High School
Students reach the optimum level of absorption
towards the end of the day in school as they
come in as early as 7.25am daily. By
implementing this activity during the last
periods, the students will be motivated and feel
energized to participate.

2) Include various learning style


I find it interesting because it combines several
intelligences such as kinesthetic, interpersonal
and verbal linguistic on the whole.

3) Collaboration
It also enables my students to take greater role
in their learning of the language as they work
and share their views with their group members.

4) Teacher talk less


The very best thing I like about this activity is
that it fosters students autonomy which is
uncommon in a teacher-dominated class.
Students become active participant and take
control to their own learning. Hence, students
talk more than teacher.

How does the lesson fit


with syllabus /
timetable?
(e.g. what were/are the
aims of the
previous/subsequent
lessons?)

Based on the scheme of work (English In Mind 3)


the lesson selected for this class of students is
Vocabulary of personality adjectives (Unit
11:Love). The lesson before this is related to
vocabulary describing physical appearance of a
famous person. However students have built
prior knowledge on what personal adjectives and

CiSELT
Hin Hua High School
nous are and how they used when they were in
Junior One itself.
The lesson is conducted mainly to check
students understanding of personality adjectives.
In subsequent lesson, students need to produce
written work (homework SB pg 84 Exercise f)
Learning outcome(s)
(what are the main
learning aims in terms of
grammar, vocabulary,
language skills of this
lesson?)

Materials and
references
(attach worksheets)

After completing the lesson the student will be


able :1. to enhance their knowledge in the lexical
field of adjectives of personality
2. to identify the meaning of the new lexical
by using a fun activity called Vocabulary
Bingo .
3. to use the lexical learned to talk about
their family members.
4. to develop skills of cooperation and
collaboration through pair and group work

1. English In Mind 3
2. Strips of papers (Matching activity)
3. Handout 1 (BINGO)

Anticipated problems
1. Students will be noisy and restless
2. Vociferous ones dominate the activities.
3. Students interpretation may deviate
4. Student may exceed the time allocated for
the activities
5. Some may just dont like the activities and
dont really want to develop one-to one

CiSELT
Hin Hua High School
relation with their pair or group

Proposed solutions
1. T set up signals- Holding one hand in the
air, and making eye contact with students
is a great way to quite the class and get
their attention on me.
2. Not to let the vociferous one dominate the
class. T advice students in advance- to
respect and listen to others and take turns
as well.
1. Give and check instructions clearly and
carefully before the pair and group work
begins
3. Teacher has to have a stop watch to
monitor the time of each presentation

Please complete this Lesson procedure BEFORE you teach the lesson. Remember to include
enough detail for your assessor to understand what you plan to happen during the lesson,
especially what you will do (Teacher activity), what your students will do (Student activity)
and what the aim of each stage is.

Manage to meet my objectives


I managed to meet my aims and conducted the
lesson according to the plan rather successfully.
By designing varieties and balance range of
activities which cater to my students needs and
intelligence I was also able to drag my students
attention into the lesson.
Students show active participation in the activities
Students were quite excited and enthusiastic
throughout the lesson. Hence, they enjoyed
Vocabulary Bingo Game session because they
were competing among each other to see who
wins the game. The students who seem to least
engaged in the previous lessons suddenly found
their place in the classroom..

Through cooperation (pair and group work)Activities went well


Matching and Vocabulary Bingo game activities
went well as I planned. Students were managed to
follow the flow especially for the Vocabulary Bingo
game as some of them were helping to elicit the
words by using facial expression and miming.
Through my observation, I also realized that
students were able to cooperate with their
classmates and peers and being able to share
their ideas and connect throughout lesson.

CiSELT
Hin Hua High School
Able to produce the target language accurately in
the speaking activity
Upon observing their speaking activity, I noticed
that majority of them were able to use the lexical
they have learnt to talk about different people in
their family.

Students feel the senses of belonging


The activities used in this lesson are mainly
students centered. Therefore students took active
participation in every activities throughout the
lesson. Naturally the class became more effective
because the students could feel that sense of
belonging.
What didnt go well?
Why?
(refer to the learners,
learning outcomes and
stage aims, lesson
procedures, tasks /
activities and materials)

Time-management
My biggest weakness is the Time-management- to
do a lot in a little amount of time especially during
the activity time can be quite challenging. Some
time I tend get excited and get carried away with
the activities. This is something I strive to improve
through my continued experiences in the class.

Giving instruction
I overlooked this part in lead-in stage. I assumed
that students understood my instruction and
started the activity without checking it which
eventually got messed-up a little during the initial
stage

Noise and cheating


Some students especially boys were quite noisy

CiSELT
Hin Hua High School
and not serious during the activity. They were
cheating during the activity by simply crossing out
the words.

Time given for speaking activity was not enough


I found that, the pace of the activities (especially
speaking activity) was too fast to half of themStudents like the activity but were a bit frustrated
not to given enough time to speak as long as they
could.

What changes will I


make next time?
Why?

Next time, I will make sure to follow my lesson as


it is planned and do not waste my time on
unnecessary task.

I will also make sure to check my instructions after


giving it, so that students will be more organized
and follow the flow of the activities without any
confusion.

Disruptive students- Identifying them in advance


and splitting them in different groups will help
them to maintain their discipline.

I will give more time for students during speaking


activity as it gives students the opportunity to use
the word they have learnt

It would be more productive to slow down and


then maybe ask them to make a card or poster out
of their notes about their families members and
put it on the classroom wall.
