Grade Level: Middle School 2nd grade
Textbook: Dong-A

Topic : Visual Thinking

Lesson Title: Lesson 4. The Amazing World of Animals (Reading)

Source of Inspiration/ Experimental GoalNow, we’re living in the world of image. Before starting the ‘Reading’ part of this lesson, students can figure out the main idea and some key information of the text through visual thinking activity.

Language Skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking

Learning Objective: After this class, students will be able to...
1. visualize the content of the text through simple drawing
2. guess some key information with the pictures of other groups
3. complete the text by filling in in the blanks.

Teaching Development Goals:
Rather than having students read the text directly without any preparation, I’d rather do some pre-reading activities for making them prepared to read the text in detail. With visual thinking method, which needs collaborating with others, I want my students to get the gist and some key information from the text.

Textbook, worksheet for practicing visualization(individual), worksheet for visual thinking(group), colored pens, PPT slides

Detailed Procedure
(1) Opening & Warm-up Students solve some questions which are helpful for guessing today’s topic(animals) with Kahoot.

(2) Introducing learning objectives 
Read Today’s learning objectives together.

(3) What is visual thinking?
Teacher shows some pictures and a short video clip which are related to visual thinking. Through this, students can figure out the importance of visual images nowadays.

(4) Let’s practice visualizing!
T gives students a worksheet for practicing drawing for visualization. On the worksheet, there are some simplified pictures for practicing visualization.

(5) Let’s start reading.
T shows the first part of the text to the students, and students read it aloud. T assigns each animal to each group and explain what they are going to do briefly.

(6) Visualizing(10 mins)
Each group reads their part of reading carefully, and visualize the content of the paragraph. For this, they should express as much information as they can. Also, they should not use any English text.

(7) Guessing and Writing(3 mins for each paragraph)
With the visualized text of other groups, each group makes a guess the detailed information of the text that they did not read. After that, they fill in the blanks to complete the text.

(8) Check the answers togetherStudents check the answers together with PPT slides. T gives points for both good guessing and good drawing.

(9) Wrap up T shows the video clip about monkeys which floss their teeth with human hair.

1. If it’s possible, it might be good to show the visualized text of each group to everyone.
2. All of the participants were good at drawing and they became to know what the visual thinking is and its value.
3. It was good for students to get some points for both good guessing and good drawing.

Teaching Demonstration Lesson Plan #1

Name:  Hye In                                                      

Grade Level: freshmen in high school

Topic/Lesson Title: English Literature Class - What is Real Love?

Source of Inspiration/ Experimental Goal

I have never taught English literature. However, in near future, I might have to teach English literature because if some students want to take an English literature course, schools have to open it. I am afraid and cautious of of teaching English Literature because I am not a native speaker of English and I do not know much about it. But, as I took a ‘short stories’ class, I thought I could start with short stories and do some activities that can stimulate their imagination and develop their creativity.

Language Skills: speaking, writing, reading, listening

Learning Objective:  (What will learners know or be able to do after your lesson?)

  1. Students will be able to talk about their thoughts and experiences regarding discussion topics.
  2. Students will be able to retell what they heard from their group members.
  3. Students will be able to co- write a cinquain poem.

Teaching Development Goals: (What do you hope to learn and/or accomplish as an educator?
                                                     Which criteria will you be focusing on improving)

I hope to lead my literature class to have a vibrant atmosphere. I want to design my class which enables students to think in different ways, share their thoughts freely, and work together with others, using English.

Materials/Tools: Computer, Projector, PPT,  Worksheets, Whiteboard, Markers

Detailed Procedure

① Review
Make Ss recall what we read and what we watched
② Group Discussion
Have Ss share their thoughts and experiences regarding discussion topics and retell what they heard from group members
③ Poem Understanding
Make Ss understand the structure of a cinquain poem and how to write one
④ Group Poem Writing
Encourage Ss to co-write a cinquain poem
⑤ Group Poem Recital
- Make Ss recite their group poem
- Make Ss guess the word in the last line of each poem
- Let Ss vote for the best one and give the winner group 2019 TTP Award

- not enough time to retell what students heard from their group members
- more detailed instruction needed
