Assignment 5: Designing a listening or reading comprehension lesson plan
In this assignment you are required to:
• demonstrate your comprehension of the different stages in a listening or reading PPP lesson plan.
• demonstrate your ability to use varied and appropriate listening/ reading comprehension techniques.
• demonstrate your ability to use effective vocabulary presentation technique if you choose to pre-teach 
• demonstrate improvement in writing a lesson plan after having completed assignment 4 (Take into account 
the corrections and suggestions your tutor made and avoid making the same mistakes.) Instructions: 
Look for listening or reading material that you would like to use for this lesson. Decide on the level of your class and how you would like to exploit the material. Write a cover page including the following headings:
• Aims:
• Level:
• Time:
• Assumptions:
• Anticipated problems and solutions:
• Material/aids: (include the script or text in your lesson plan as well as the source) 
Do not forget to include the following steps in your lesson plan (see Lesson Plan template on pp 99). The questions in the headings below are to remind you of what to include in each step. You do not need to answer them one by one.
• Presentation stage: How will you introduce the topic of the listening or reading material? How would you get the students interested in the topic? What techniques would you use?
• Vocabulary to pre-teach: What words would you pre-teach, if any? How will you pre-teach them? What activities will you plan for this step?
• Vocabulary to be guessed by the students: Think of the words your students might not know but should be able to guess through context. Would you include an activity for these words? If so, what activity? Would it be a part of the listening/reading tasks?
• Practice stage- Listening or Reading tasks: Create one skimming and at least two scanning tasks. Be creative. (Choose varied, engaging and challenging listening or reading activities to exploit the script/text).
• Production stage- Follow-up activities: Any follow-up ideas? This can lead to speaking/writing skills or even a revision of vocabulary or a grammar topic done in a communicative way. 
Acknowledge the source of your material as plagiarism is an offense. You can use a text, a dialogue, a video, etc. from an ESL textbook or the Internet. However, your lesson plan must be original: your lesson aims, and all the items in the cover page, and the types of activities in all stages must be your own creation.
