BRIEF OUTLINE: Students write graduation messages to their friends.

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • An actual yearbook from your home country (optional)

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. After the JTE introduces the lesson and reviews it, the ALT then shares his/her own JHS yearbook with the class. Students are given an opportunity to view and pass it around the class.
  2. ALT verbally shares messages from his/her own yearbook with the class and writes a select few on the blackboard. The JTE may also translate the messages.
  3.  New vocabulary from the ALT's yearbook messages is reviewed and culturally-related aspects are discussed.
  4.  ALT then hands out the worksheet.
  5. Students are encouraged to compose as many unique messages as possible.

 

VARIATIONS:

  • ALT may compose his/her own graduation messages to use as examples if a yearbook is unavailable.

 

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This is a New Horizon 3, Writing Plus 2 activity for pages 76-77.
  • I used messages from my own junior high school yearbook from my home country.

 

TIPS/CAUTIONS:

  • Instruct students to handle the yearbook with care if one is to be shared with the class.
