Suggested procedures Point out the communicative function to be practiced and play the audio. Practice the exchanges chorally, using backchaining to help students with overall rhythm and intonation see Techniques, page ix. Read the instructions for Exercise B and model the role-play teacher-student, student-student, etc. Have students practice in pairs or groups, with each student practicing each role one or more times. To help students internalize and gain uency with the language, assign new partners and have students practice again; alternatively, have students stand and practice, changing partners several times say, for example, Practice with at least four other students.
Call on one or more pairs or groups to stand and perform for the class. If helpful, you may want to have students write out the conversation after the oral practice. Practicing grammar The Grammar focus charts present the grammatical forms or structures taught in a unit. The Grammar focus presentations are always followed by Discovering grammar. This section invites students to learn grammar inductivelythat is, to gure out the main grammar rules by themselves.
Discovering grammar is followed by the Practicing grammar section, which consists of several practice exercises that enable students to produce the relevant grammatical form or structure presented in the Grammar focus chart.
Suggested procedures Read the grammar chart heading aloud, or call on a student to read it. Explain or elicit any new grammatical terms. Have students read the examples, either silently or aloud. Tell them to pay particular attention to the parts in boldface. The Learn to learn sections are designed to help students become better language learners.
This section presents general learning strategies as well as specic strategies for reading, listening, speaking, writing, and vocabulary acquisition. Students are then given a task with which they can practice applying the learning strategy.
Suggested procedures Read the strategy aloud or call on a student to read it. Elicit or explain how the strategy is helpful. Tell students that they will now practice using the strategy. Read or call on students to read the task instructions. Model or elicit one or more answers if needed. Then have students complete the task. After checking the task, ask students if they found the strategy helpful.
Elicit when and where they could apply this strategy. Recycle the strategy whenever applicable: Recycle by reminding students of the strategy, eliciting how to perform it, and asking students to practice applying it. By repeatedly applying the strategy, students will internalize it. Teen talk. There are a variety of types of Listening exercises in Postcards. All include the structures, functions, and vocabulary in focus. Audioscripts may highlight a telephone conversation, an extract from a radio program, an interview, or a recorded continuation of the storyline featuring the main characters.
Each listening is accompanied by a simple task such as completing a chart or answering comprehension questions. Some tasks ask students to listen for specic information, while others encourage them to listen for gist rather than at word level. Suggested procedures Set the context of the Listening. Ask warm-up questions to generate interest.
Make sure that students understand the instructions and task. Always have students read over the questions, chart, etc. Elicit or explain any new words in the task. Play the audio once for students to grasp the general idea. Ask a few simple comprehension questions. Play the audio again once or twice and have students complete the answers to the task as they listen.
If students still have difculty completing the task after a third listening, play the audio once more and stop at key points where students need to record information. Check the answers to the task. Replay the audio if helpful. The Teen talk sections are designed to let students talk about topics of interest in a casual, relaxing manner with little or no teacher intervention. While many of the activities in Postcards focus on accuracy, Teen talk focuses primarily on teen-to-teen communication.
It gives students a chance to pay less attention to form and more attention to getting their ideas across in English. Suggested procedures Read or have students read the instructions, then quickly chorus the Useful language. Follow with a teacher-student or student-student model of the beginning of the discussion. Assign groups and let students discuss. Walk around and monitor as students work.
You may occasionally need to mediatefor example, to encourage shy students to give their opinions but avoid correcting or offering language help unless asked.
When students have nished, call on several students to share their thoughts and ideas on the topic with the class. Your turn. The importance of reading cannot be overestimated.
It gives condence and motivates learning. It provides context for new language and serves as a model for writing. Most important of all, it is a stimulus for ideas and discussion.
The reading texts in Postcards are varied in type and length and are often adapted from authentic sources such as brochures, newspapers, and magazines.
English for Everyone Course Book Level 3 Intermediate | DK UK
Suggested procedures Ask a few general warm-up questions to set the context of the reading. Elicit the title and ask questions about the photographs. Ask students to predict what the reading will cover. Have students read the instructions and questions or task, explaining any new vocabulary words therein. Make sure students understand what they are to do. Have the students read the text silently once or twice to themselves. Alternatively, play the audio or read the text aloud the rst time with the students following along in their books, then let them read the text again silently.
Encourage students to guess the meaning of new words and expressions as they read. Have the class do the comprehension task, either individually or in pairs. The Your turn section personalizes a topic and allows students to apply recently learned language. The activity may be oral or written. Follow standard procedures for pair, group, or writing activities. Check the answers. Elicit or explain the meanings of any key vocabulary items. If helpful, have the students do a nal conrmation reading of the text.
Writing tasks have a twofold purpose: The detailed lesson notes give guidance for handling specic writing tasks. Suggested procedures There is often a model reading or set of questions that will help guide students through the Writing exercise. Encourage them to consider the model as they think about and then write their paragraph s. Help students brainstorm about what kind of content they might include in their writing. You may wish to do this as a class, in groups, or in pairs.
Encourage students to make notes or an outline before they begin writing. If helpful, review the relevant paragraph structure with your students; for example: Encourage them to check a dictionary for the spellings of new words.
After students have nished their writing, have them exchange papers with a partner and mark their partners work using the Peer editing checklist on page Then have students take back and correct their writing before turning it in to you. You may wish to have students use the following correction symbols when marking each others work: Each begins with a Test-taking tip to help students learn strategies for doing their best on tests. The Progress check tasks are divided into three sections: Grammar, Vocabulary, and Communication.
There is also a Now I can. To calculate student scores on the Progress checks, simply total the number of possible points per section the number of items minus the examples.
Then divide the number of correct responses by the total number of points. For example, on a test with 63 possible points, a student answered 46 correctly. Divide 46, the number of correct responses, by 63, the number of possible points. Optional Sections The following are optional sections that can be done with or after units. Suggestions as to teaching procedure and when to complete each activity are listed at the optional point of use.
You may wish to use all of these activities or just a few, depending on your situation and student needs. Games are found after Units 2 and 5 of the Student Book. The Games are designed to practice relevant grammar and vocabulary in a relaxed and fun format. They provide students with the opportunity to consolidate language while having fun.
Projects are found after each game. These Projects provide students with the opportunity to produce a piece of work based on their own input and ideas, while at the same time consolidating and expanding on the language they have learned.
English Book 3-Teacher 300913
Project work fosters creativity, learner independence, and cooperation with other students. Make sure that you and the students can give sufcient time to each Project. Some may be completed in one or two class hours, while others are longer-term assignments. Wide Angle on the world. Putting it together is a photostory activity that occurs at the end of odd-numbered units Units 1, 3, and 5. It features the main characters and consolidates previously learned language with a predicting and listening activity.
Follow standard listening activity procedures. You may want to extend this section by treating the photostory text as a dialogue with chorusing and pronunciation work, pair or group practice, and dramatic enactment. The photographs and dialogue can also be used to discuss American life and culture and compare it with students own.
Progress checks. Wide Angle readings come after every third unit. Each expands on a theme from previous units. Wide angle offers additional integrated practice in reading, speaking, listening, writing, vocabulary development, and learning strategies. Fun with grammar. The Progress checks are found after every two units Units 2, 4, and 6. They give students a chance to measure their progress on a regular basis. Throughout the units, students are referred to the Fun with grammar activities located in the back of the Student Book.
These grammar-based competitions are designed to be fun while at the same time allow for review and reinforcement of unit content. The Fun with songs section is found at the end of the Student Book. These song projects provide an opportunity for students to take a break and relax, listen to and discuss music and musicians, and gain a greater appreciation and understanding of English songs.
Focus on culture. A logical learner will benet from activities involving deductive and inductive thinking, classication, rules, and processes. Students with a high degree of linguistic intelligence are talented at extracting meaning from text and using language to express meaning. They tend to be good at learning languages and generally have an afnity for writing, reading, summarizing, giving speeches, and other language-based activities.
Students with a high degree of interpersonal intelligence have a developed sensitivity to others and learn well through social interactions. Pair and group work, collaborative learning, interviewing, writing dialogues, and reecting on social situations presented in dialogues are examples of activities helpful to an interpersonal learner. A student who is self-reective and sensitive to his or her own feelings tends to have a high degree of intrapersonal intelligence. Independent work, self-assessment, self-reection, personalizing, journal-writing, and thinking about ones personal reaction to situations and topics will be of benet to the intrapersonal learner.
Focus on values. Focus on culture pages are found at the end of the Student Book. These readings allow students to gain cross-cultural understanding through the study of other cultures and comparisons with their own. Each Focus on culture spread includes discussion and writing practice. Background notes in this Teachers Edition present in-depth information on U. Relevant information from the notes can be shared with students to increase their cross-cultural understanding. Focus on multiple intelligences.
Recognizing that students have a variety of learning styles and abilities, teaching suggestions in this Teachers Edition include notes on activities with a strong focus on multiple intelligences. These activities will benet students with natural afnities for specic intelligences and related learning styles.
At the same time, focusing on different intelligences can help all students explore and further develop a wider range of learning modes. The intelligences highlighted in the teaching notes are: Students with a strong kinesthetic, or bodily, intelligence will learn well when engaging in activities involving motor skills.
Activities such as hands-on projects, games, total physical response exercises TPR , and the acting out of dialogues and scripts with movement and gestures stimulate kinesthetic intelligence.
Making or using pictures, diagrams, graphic organizers, maps, symbols, photos or videos, etc. Students with this type of intelligence will be stimulated by activities involving soundpronunciation and intonation work, listening exercises, songs, jazz chants, etc. As the classroom is one of the best places to help young people develop values and character, each unit of the Teachers Edition includes notes focusing on values.
The characters and situations presented in the dialogues and photostories are modeled after real teens and thus present numerous opportunities for reection on appropriate and inappropriate behavior. Focus on values notes provide suggestions on how to help students recognize and react to implicit and explicit values, attitudes, and behavior in dialogues and photostories.
Cross-curricular activities. The Teachers Edition includes Cross-curricular activity suggestions for each unit of the Student Book. These activities encourage students to useand sometimes expandtheir knowledge of social studies, science, literature, and the arts while practicing English.
Parents play a fundamental role in the education of their children. The more they get involved and encourage their children to work at home, the better results students achieve. Grammar reference. The Grammar reference section found at the end of the Teachers Edition provides in-depth grammatical.

Depending on the level and prior knowledge of students, the teacher may wish to share or elicit some or all of this extra grammatical information in class. Unit and Quarterly tests. Photocopiable Unit and Quarterly tests every three units , as well as their answer keys, are found at the end of the Teachers Edition. The answer keys specify the total number of possible points for each test: To calculate student scores, simply divide the number of correct responses by the total number of possible points.
For example, on a test with 50 possible points, a student answered 45 correctly. Divide 45, the number of correct responses, by 50, the number of possible points.
Student self-evaluation checklists. A photocopiable Student self-evaluation checklist is found at the end of the Teachers Edition. You may copy and give this to students after each unit so that they may reect on and assess their own progress. Certicate of completion.
