Hello everyone! I'm a PGCE student teaching French. My first placement was very good, great school ,Department and Mentor. I'm starting my second placement soon.Very excited about it I would like to have some advice on planning a lesson or to be more precise on planning a sequence of activities in a lesson. I know <u>it is</u> supposed to take you ages when you start teaching but the thing is, sometimes it does get ridiculous ...like 2 or 3 hours for one lesson (I was at 4h two months ago ;-P) . I really enjoy planning but I would like to be more efficient at it, and creative. So I would like to ask the French teachers to share examples of sequence of activities used in order to promote the four skills? Or at least 3 out of 4? For instance if you are introducing new vocabulary and you do three stage questioning with IWB first, then say a matching up activity from the IWB what would you do next? I know that each lesson will be different but I think that if several teachers share their sequencing of activities we could end up with a real treasure. Thank you!
