Differentiation: Group division before the lesson

Teacher divides learners into 3 groups with three different levels in a group with the help of the cards. When learners come into the classroom teacher gives them cards with the name of their group. Teacher controls the equal contribution and participation of each learner during the lesson. Every member of a group has his own role and function while working together. 

Names of the groups: “Drops”, “Rain”, “Shower”.

Leading-in stage (W)

Teacher greets learners and sets environmentally-friendly atmosphere within the classroom. Teacher encourages learners to respect each other and to work in a collaborative way.

Warm-up: «Australian rain»

1) Rub your hands

2) Snap your fingers 

3) Clap on your legs

4) Tap on the desk

4) Stamp your feet once


«Video sketching»

(W I) Now look at the whiteboard and watch a short video. What do you think has happened in the scene? Answers may be the following: flood, a hurricane, a heavy rain etc. 

What can Australian rain cause? Ask them about other natural disasters they know.

What do you think is the topic of our lesson? What do you think will be the lesson objectives?

Differentiation – how do you plan to give more support? How do you plan to challenge the more able learners?

Assessment – how are you planning to check learners’ learning?

More support: 

Less able learners are given the list of necessary words and phrases. They can do easier tasks.

More able learners:

More able learners can help less able learnersThey can do more complicated tasks.

Peer-assessment, Self-assessment

Observe learners when participating in discussion. Did each learner contribute to the discussion? If not, why not? (e.g. didn’t understand what to do; not so confident speaking English; not interested in topic; other) 

Learners work in groups, apply skills and knowledge to a practical and cooperative task, and produce their own materials.
