Topic-based instruction in the EFL classroom : topic-based lesson ideas for teaching students at the lower secondary level
The focal point of this project is topic-based instruction in the EFL classroom. It consists of a report and topic-based lesson ideas for teaching students at the lower secondary level. In the report, I seek to explain the advantages of implementing topic-based instruction in the language classroom and to provide a theoretical discussion of language teaching principles that are well served by the method. Following my report are topic-based lesson ideas in three parts; Lesson ideas for teaching 8th grade students, Lesson ideas for teaching 9th grade students and Lesson ideas for teaching 10th grade students. Each section includes a topic which the activity ideas are based on. The three topics are: The Old American West, Ghosts and the Supernatural and The Perfect World. Each activity includes clear objectives and a detailed description of its procedure. The lesson ideas are meant to demonstrate how English can be taught based on content rather than isolated language items. Hopefully, English teachers will find them useful and inspire them to put this learner-centred method into practice.
