Lesson Plan: Listening and Talking - Listening for Factual Information, Discussing Instructional Texts (Recipes)

Subject: Languages (Scottish Curriculum) Level: First Level

Desired Outcome: When I engage with others, I know when and how to listen, when to talk, how much to say, when to ask questions, and how to respond with respect.

Lesson Duration: 60 minutes

Resources: - Printed copies of simple recipes (e.g., chocolate chip cookies, fruit salad) - Whiteboard or flipchart - Markers - Audio recording of a recipe being read aloud (optional)

Introduction (10 minutes): 1. Begin the lesson by asking the students if they have ever followed a recipe to make something delicious. 2. Discuss the importance of listening and talking when following a recipe. 3. Explain that today, they will practice listening for factual information and discussing instructional texts, specifically recipes.

Listening Activity (15 minutes): 1. Distribute printed copies of a simple recipe to each student. 2. Instruct the students to read the recipe silently to themselves. 3. Play an audio recording of the recipe being read aloud (optional). 4. Ask the students to listen carefully and follow along with the recipe as it is being read. 5. After the recording or silent reading, ask the students to share any factual information they gathered from the recipe (e.g., ingredients, measurements, cooking time). 6. Write their responses on the whiteboard or flipchart.

Discussion Activity (20 minutes): 1. Divide the students into small groups of 3-4. 2. Instruct each group to choose one recipe from the printed copies. 3. Ask the groups to discuss the recipe together, focusing on the following: - What ingredients are needed? - What steps are involved in making the dish? - Are there any specific cooking techniques mentioned? - Are there any safety precautions mentioned? - Are there any additional tips or variations mentioned? 4. Encourage the students to take turns speaking and actively listen to their group members. 5. Circulate among the groups, providing support and guidance as needed. 6. After the discussion, ask each group to share one interesting fact or tip they discovered from their recipe.

Reflection and Conclusion (15 minutes): 1. Gather the students back together as a whole class. 2. Lead a discussion on the importance of listening and talking respectfully during group discussions. 3. Ask the students to reflect on their own listening and talking skills during the activity. 4. Discuss the challenges they faced and strategies they used to overcome them. 5. Summarize the key points of the lesson and the desired outcome: When engaging with others, we should know when and how to listen, when to talk, how much to say, when to ask questions, and how to respond with respect. 6. Provide feedback and praise for their active participation and respectful communication throughout the lesson.

Extension Activity (optional): 1. In pairs, have the students create their own simple recipe for a dish they enjoy. 2. They can write it down and exchange recipes with another pair. 3. Each pair can then follow the recipe they received and discuss their experience, focusing on listening for factual information and discussing instructional texts.

Note: This lesson plan can be adapted and modified to suit the specific needs and abilities of the students in your class.
