Preface l.jpg
Preface Class: An Example for Taiwanese Context

  • This session provides an initial attempt to introduce a self-designed lesson plan for senior high school context.

  • Welcome you to try out the sample syllabus and share your experience!


Challenges l.jpg
Challenges Class: An Example for Taiwanese Context

  • How to insert new cultural elements

    into the fixed syllabus?

  • How to attract students’ interest in

    learning cultural content above

    grammar and vocabulary?

  • How to squeeze the new cultural

    activity in the already tight

    schedule?


Principles of lesson plan 1 l.jpg
Principles of Lesson Plan (1) Class: An Example for Taiwanese Context

Here the lesson plan is based on two teaching methods: TBLT and CBI.

  • Task-Based Language Teaching (TBLT)

    • Activities that involve real communication

      are essential for language learning.

    • Activities in which language is used for

      carrying out meaningful tasks promote

      learning.

Principles of Lesson Plan (2) Class: An Example for Taiwanese Context

  • Content-Based Instruction (CBI)

    • The students learn the language as a by-product of learning about real-world content.

    • Students use the language as a means of acquiring information, rather than as an end in itself.

    • For example, students learn about history, science, etc. in English.


Principles of lesson plan 3 l.jpg
Principles of Lesson Plan (3) Class: An Example for Taiwanese Context

  • Objectives- Learning by Doing

    • Encourage students to participate in activities and collect relevant material

    • Enhance students’ four skills through various communicative tasks

    • Help students acquire cultural ‘knowledge’

Sample lesson plan 3 requirements of presentation l.jpg
Sample Lesson Plan – (3) Class: An Example for Taiwanese ContextRequirements of Presentation

  • Each group has to introduce the selected festival to the rest of class by answering following questions:

    • What was the origin of the festival?

    • How did people celebrate it in the past?

    • What does the festival mean to the modern people?

    • How do people celebrate it nowadays?

  • Each group has to prepare an ‘visual aid’ for the presentation. It can be:

    • A poster, photos, relevant pictures, objects, video tape or a role play, etc.


Sample lesson plan 4 forms of presentation l.jpg
Sample Lesson Plan – (4) Class: An Example for Taiwanese ContextForms of Presentation

  • Oral Presentation:

    The group members deliver a speech with the visual aid in turn

  • Role Play:

    Group members use costume or properties for stage play to demonstrate the celebration

  • Story Telling:

    One of the group members acts as a narrator and others play the origin of the festival.


Example lesson plan 5 in class activity l.jpg
Example Lesson Plan - (5) Class: An Example for Taiwanese ContextIn-class Activity

  • Students’ presentations

  • 30-40 minutes (subject to the size of class)

    Each group has about five minutes.

  • Before presentations, the teacher could inform the class about the further discussion afterwards.

  • Attention is required.

  • Students are encouraged to speak English, but of course, this is also subject to the class’ overall language proficiency.


Example lesson plan 5 in class comment reflection l.jpg
Example Lesson Plan - (5) Class: An Example for Taiwanese ContextIn-class Comment & Reflection

  • Teacher’s comments (10 minutes)

    2-1 Give positive comments to every group’s performance

    2-2 More importantly, ask students to compare and contrast the foreign and Taiwanese festivals

    2-3 Possible questions for reflection are:

    -What do foreign and Taiwanese people care

    through these festivals? (values)

    -Why do/don’t Taiwanese people do the same

    thing like the foreigner (give one example)?

    (Life styles)


Example lesson plan 6 teaching notes l.jpg
Example Lesson Plan - (6) Class: An Example for Taiwanese ContextTeaching Notes

  • The answer to the question for reflection can be an open or negotiated one.

  • Students should be encouraged to make assumption.

  • The point is to lead students to be aware of cultural values and intercultural differences.

  • A teacher is unlikely to know ‘everything’ about world festivals and cultures! It is also a great opportunity for you to ‘learn by teaching’!


Example lesson plan 6 resources l.jpg
Example Lesson Plan - (6) Class: An Example for Taiwanese ContextResources

  • Students should be encouraged to do research in the library.

  • Information about festivals can be easily found in various

  • travel guides of international countries, 光華雜誌, 空中英語

  • 教室, etc.

  • Another option is to use the Internet. Useful links can be found

  • on this website. Some information about Taiwan in English can

  • refer to 交通部觀光局 http://tiscsvr.tbroc.gov.tw/en/ which also

  • provides relevant photos.
