The Best Party Ever- New Crown 3: GET Plus 3

This lesson covers the material for the textbook lesson in New Crown 3 for GET Plus 3 and adds an activity where students practice asking for and offering help while planning an imaginary party.

  1. The lesson begins with review conversations and going over the goals of GET Plus 3, which are asking for and offering help.

  2. Co-teachers will read the dialogue in the textbook and students will practice key phrases. I've added into this lesson some review about adding "please" to commands to make them more polite, since in the textbook, Riku does not say please 😅.

  3. Then, introduce and practice new textbook vocabulary. Students practice "I want you to ~ " using the examples from the textbook.

  4. Introduce the difference between "I want you to~" / "I would like you to ~" / and "I need you to~" with examples for each to demonstrate the urgency conveyed by the different word choice. Review the important phrases one more time.

  5. Tell students that they are going to practice the phrases by planning "The Best Party Ever".

  6. First we need to choose the party theme. Introduce types of parties in English. We had fun talking about Japanese equivalents for common types of parties as well! Feel free to change this bit to suit your own personality/culture. Students should write their chosen theme in the dialogue box on the worksheet. I told them they could also create their own original theme.

  7. Students choose the place to hold their party. Give examples of possible locations.

  8. Students take a memo of 2-3 things from the textbook word bank that they need for their party. Ex "decorate the room", "bring some food". My co-teacher and I encouraged students to make their own to match the theme of their party.

  9. Demonstrate the example on slide 37 with your co-teacher.

  10. Students should make pairs. Student on the right is partner A first and student on the left is B. When they finish, swap who is A and who is B.

  11. Tell students to take English memos of each of their partner's names and the tasks they asked them to do. This helps to keep them accountable for listening to their partners.
    Ex: Bob: Clean the room and buy snacks.

  12. Students should change partners by every other row moving seats with the first student moving to the back seat and everyone else moving forward one seat.

  13. Do as many repetitions of step 11-13 as you can so students can practice with many different partners. As time went on, we encouraged students to avoid looking at their worksheet in order to memorize the dialogue.

  14. Last, call on volunteers or random students to share their dialogue with the class!
