Part two. Lesson Plan: Lexical Approach on the Concept of Crime

Time should be adapted accordingly

Duration: 45 minutes

Objective: Enhance students’ vocabulary related to the theme of crime, practice question formulation skills, and engage in interactive discussions about different perspectives on crime presented in the stories.

Warm-Up (5 minutes)

  1. Title Assignment:
  • Ask each student to come up with a new, creative title for the text they crafted in the previous lesson.
  • After a couple of minutes, students share their original titles and the new ones they’ve proposed.
  • Briefly discuss the importance of a title in capturing the story’s essence and setting its mood or tone.

Reading and Identifying Lexis (10 minutes)

  1. Divide students into four groups, assigning each one of the previously crafted texts.
  2. Instruct students to underline or highlight words and phrases related to crime in their respective texts.
  3. Each group shares their findings.

Lexical Set Activity (10 minutes)

  1. On the board, draw four columns for categories of crime found in the texts: Theft & Robbery, Violence, Deception & Scams, Supernatural Crimes.
  2. Students classify the words/phrases they found into these categories.
  3. Discuss any words/phrases that don’t fit neatly and why.

Question Creation Activity (5 minutes)

  1. Ask students to craft 2-3 open-ended questions based on their text, focusing on the crime theme. Emphasize formulating questions that elicit detailed responses.
  2. Allow pairs/small groups to brainstorm and refine their questions.
  3. Each group quickly shares 1-2 of their questions with the class.

Rotational Interview Role Play (10-12 minutes)

  1. Organize «interview stations.» One group at each station acts as «interviewees» representing characters from their text.
  2. Other groups rotate among the stations, acting as «interviewers» using their crafted questions.
  3. Each session lasts for 3-4 minutes. After each session, the interviewing group moves to the next station.
  4. Ensure each group gets the chance to both interview and be interviewed.

Wrap-Up and Reflection (3-5 minutes)

  1. Regroup and discuss the different responses received during the interviews.
  2. Highlight any interesting insights or revelations from the discussions.
  3. Homework/Extension Activity: Ask students to reflect on the most compelling responses they received during the interviews and to write a brief reflection on how these answers deepened their understanding of the text or theme.

Materials and Resources

  1. Copies of the student-crafted texts.
  2. Board and markers.
  3. Notebooks and pens for students.

Assessment: Students will be assessed based on participation in group activities, the quality of questions they formulate, and their engagement during the interviews.

Adaptations for Online Learning: If this lesson is conducted online, utilize breakout rooms for group and pair activities. Use digital tools like MIRO or Google Docs for brainstorming and collaborative question crafting.
