Teacher Name:
 Loz Loco
Grade:
 College/University
Subject:
 World Languages

Topic:
 Forms and their use as writing Genre
Content:
 Students will focus on 'forms' as a genre what is expected from the person filling in the form (ie legibility etc) and common lexis found in forms.
Goals:
 Student will examine forms to identify the 'genre' style and requirement; complete forms to their individual levels with all preparing draft answers to a 'Hotmail' sign up form in readiness for Friday's class in the computer room.
Objectives:
 Examine the layout, style and lexis in forms so as to come to some common conclusions about what this genre is and requires; complete a chosen form either to work on handwriting specificially (Lower Level) or to be challenged by extended vocab in more difficult forms ie (confidential; concessionary rate etc).
Materials:
 Forms Dictionaries Print out of Hotmail sign up form
Introduction:
 Pair work - find the words in the pyramid (all words relate to forms). Plenary feedback.
Development:
 Preteach - style; format and common words Explain the structure of the workstations and what is required on the form.
Practice:
 Workstations are set up which have different forms -stds move round the tables and collect information on style, format and common lexis (complete worksheet).
Accommodations:
 Monitor work of all students - but concentrate on letter formation with the LL students. Encourage other grouping to refer to one another or dictionaries for unknown vocab. Have a back up activity if the HL group finish early.
Checking For Understanding:
 Pick up on what they notice when filling in the forms - legibility issues; no sentences needed; tick boxes etc. Invite students to consider other times when we complete forms (on-line forms) - who has completed forms on line? Give out Hotmail form and explain they will fill it in on line on Friday. Ask students to complete their own details - match HL / LL students so it becomes a peer activity. Bring attention to name and password issues (especially confidentiality).
Closure:
 Set up HW task - from now until the next lesson - how many forms (and of which type) do you see.
