ISE II Interview: Lesson Plan 4

ISE II (B2) Interview: preparing the Subjects for Conversation

Level: Time:
ISE II (CEFR B2) 1 x 60 minutes + optional 15 minutes

Aims:
To prepare vocabulary for the Subjects for Conversation
To practise asking and answering questions on the Subjects for Conversation

Resources and preparation:


Handout 1 (H/O1): Subjects for Conversation ISE II
Handout 2a (H/O2a): Example prompts for ISE II (These are the same as in Lesson 2.)
Handout 2b (H/O2b): Example prompts for ISE II (These are the same as in Lesson 2.)

Teacher preparation before the lesson:


Cut up H/O2a and H/O2b into individual cards and put them together into one set. The
students will use these to practise with. You need to have one set of cards per group. (If
you have already prepared the cards in Lesson Plan 2, you can just re-use the same cards.)
To create interest, bring pictures (try www.google.com/images) or objects that represent
the 6 Subjects for Conversation. Ask the students to decide what each picture represents.
Suggestions for objects:

ISE II:
Society and living standards: pictures of a poor and a rich street
Personal values and ideals: give a list of ideas, e.g: respect, love, honesty, family, etc.
The world of work: pictures people doing different jobs
Unexplained phenomena and events: pictures of ufo, ghosts
National environmental concerns: pictures of pollution, a power station
Public figures past and present: pictures of actors, the prime minister, etc.

Procedure:
1. Students remember questions/prompts (10 minutes)
Put all of the students into small groups of 2 (or 3, if necessary).
Ask the students to try and remember as many questions as possible that they can for ISE II.
(The students should try to remember questions from Lesson Plan 1 or 2 which they have
already done.) Tell the students they have 6-7 minutes.

2. Stimulate interest: show objects that represent Subjects for Conversation (10 minutes)
Show the students the objects that you brought for each Subject Area. Tell them they have 5
minutes to decide what the objects represent. After 5 minutes, give the students, H/O1.

3. Question preparation (20 minutes)


Give the students the example prompt cards for ISE II (H/02a and H/O2b). Tell the students they
now have to use the prompt cards to create at least 2-3 questions for each Subject for
Conversation. The students should write their questions on their handouts.
The students can use the question cards to help them. They can use the question that they
thought of at the beginning of the lesson. The students can also think of new questions if they
want to. Tell the students they have 15 minutes to think of all of their questions.

4. Students interview each other (20 minutes)


The students have now made their questions. Tell them to sit with a new person, 2 students each
group. If the numbers of students are not perfect, then you can allow 3 students in one group.
Tell the students that one of them is the examiner and one of them is the candidate. (If
necessary, you can have 2 examiners in one group of 3 people.) Give them 1 minute to decide
who is who. They are now going to talk about themselves. Tell the students that the examiner
has 4 minutes to interview the candidate, using their own prompts.
After 4 minutes, tell the examiners and candidates to change roles: the examiner becomes
the candidate and the candidate becomes the examiner. Stop the activity after another 4
minutes and ask the class for feedback/any questions.

5. Optional: reflection (15 minutes)


In groups, the students select and write down 10 most useful questions/phrases of the lesson.
