Lecturer’s Comment Part B .

It would be difficult for me to continue the rest of my lesson if I lose their attention at an early stage. It would be hard for the students to interpret the saying and discuss it in a group. conducting such activity would take up much of my lesson time. My presentation would cover a very basic explanation of sequence connectors and the usage of it. It may be seen as a very easy lesson . then and finally’. I opt to use a cartoon strip to focus my student’s attention titled “How to wash our face?” This cartoon strip has a significant message on personal hygiene and clearly shows the use of sequence connectors. I plan to use again the same cartoon strip for the students that to elaborate my explanation on the usage of this sequence connectors.My lesson plan is based on Chapter 9 Looking Good. Feeling Great! from the English Form 2 textbook. So. next. I have decided to use the practice provided in the textbook itself for the practice stage because I find the exercise is related to the students directly. For the set induction I did not use the activity given because my students are low- intermediate students. I am going to focus mainly on the use of ‘first. Also. This might make the students restless and I may lose control of my class. I would also be able to inculcate some relevant moral values. I have gathered some information about sequence connectors from the internet and also from the textbook itself. Moreover this is their first lesson on sequence connectors so I would start with easy and important points for them to understand the topic. This is because I can reinforce the input using the same input and I would have more time to explain on personal hygiene.

I modified the lesson by deleting the sequence connectors so the students can fill in the blanks after I have read the speech. At the end all the sentences would become a process using sequence connectors. The first exercise is more to an individual activity which is teacher centered and the second is more to student centered where I can check students understanding. To close the lesson. This exercise would help them to co- operate with each other to answer the question.but I have incorporated listening skill in this exercise. To check student’s further understanding I have provided the students with practice stage 2. This activity is a group activity where students work together to come up with a sentence using the picture given. Worksheet 1 ( Appendix 2) SMK Cannosian Convent . I would reiterate the teaching point and conclude with an open -ended question related to the skill taught.
