LESSON PLAN Lesson Title: Ready to know more about your classmate's lives.
Lesson Author: Santiago Mayorga

Grade Level: High school students

Subject Area: English

Time Allotted for the Lesson: 2 class meetings approximately 4 hrs.

Short Description of Lesson: In this lesson, students will create a power point presentation about their lives. The section of the power point will be divided in different parts: 1) students will be briefly introducing their family members 2) students will need to describe what their favorite artist is ? , their favorite food, sports, and what country they would like to visit, and their future goals.

Classroom Layout and Grouping of Students:
This lesson will be held at the computer lab because students will be able to project the power point to the class. There will be 35 students in the class, and each student will sit individually.
The order of presentations will be based on student's last name. However, I will divide them in two different groups, so the presentations will be done in two session period. Students whose last name start with A to M will present on day one and students whose name start from N to Z will present on day two. Each one of the will be going in front of the class and do their power point presentation.

Materials, Resources and Technology:

Technology resources: projector, computer, power point

Student's Present level of Performance and Knowledge:
Students are familiar with the use of power point and the way they have to include pictures in their files. Students know the basic format for creating power point presentations, and they also have an idea of how to use the projector because they have seen me doing this every time.

Student's Present level of Performance and Knowledge:
For doing this activity, students need to have basic understanding of how to use power point. Indeed, students have the basic knowledge of how to use power point and projector. They also have the ability to upload pictures to the power point.
In addition to this, students need to do public speaking with the correct grammar usage. Students need to use simple present, simple past and future tenses in their presentation.

Instructional Procedures
Lesson Set:

For doing this fun and interactive activity, I will start by doing my own presentation, using the same format I am requiring for this lesson. Then I will ask the first student whose last name starts with an A to go in front of the class and tell us about his/ her life. I will relate this lesson to our previous lessons where we have used public speaking as a way of improving students abilities when talking in English to their friends. This helps them to put more effort when learning a new lesson.

Techniques and Activities:
1. I will start my presentation about myself using power point.
1. Students will go in front of the class
2. They will open up a power point document which contains their information about their lives.
3. Students will say something funny about themselves for introducing their presentation.
4. They will be briefly introducing their family members
5) Students will need to describe what their favorite artist is ? , their favorite food, sports , and what country they would like to visit, and their future goals.
6) Students will ask their classmates if they have any questions.
Lesson Closure:
. Students will ask their classmates if they have any questions.
I will be telling my students about the strength and weaknesses of their presentations and what would be needed to change for the next presentation.

Adaptations for Special Learners: No one in my class requires any special accommodation, so I don't have to worry about it now.

Supplemental Activities: Extension and remediation:

- Students may need to use different words that they are not familiar with for doing this assignment.
- A written online with the main points would be needed to help the student to remember what is next when speaking in front of the classroom.

1-oral presentation
2-Use of new vocabulary
3. Fluency
3-Speaking accuracy
4. Connection between the pictures and what the student is talking

Student Products:

Students will gain an understanding of why learning public speaking using technology is important, and they will be able to be more confident when presenting another topic in front of their classmates. They will be able to improve their pronunciation and the speed and natural flow of their speech.
