A. Introduction-

1.What do you do after school, what kind of hobbies do you enjoy.
2.Can you tell me what it is that excites you in your free time.
3. Is this hobby done singularly, (by yourself) or does it take more than one person.

B. Development-

1.For instance, one of my hobbies is photography.
2.I don't do it as a profession, I do it for fun after school and on the weekends.
3. This hobby just takes me and a camera, but it is fun sometimes to go on a trip and take pictures with someone else.

C. Practice-

1.Can you write down what your hobbies are. What you really enjoy after school or on the weekend.
2. Tell me why you enjoy this activity.
3. Tell me anything that comes into your head about it, who inspired you, do you want to do this professionally or always keep it as a hobby.

D. Independent Practice-

1.After you've written it down, we'll break into small groups, I would like you to talk about your hobby to your classmates.
2. Tell them, why you enjoy your hobby, what inspires you to do it every chance that you get.
3. Also, describe what kinds of items it takes to fulfill this hobby. Does it cost a lot or is it free.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1.Is this a popular hobby or is it something just a few people enjoy.
2. Use complete sentences and make sure your spelling is correct.
3. As you write about your hobby, make sure words are capitalized that need to be, and periods are placed where they should be placed.
(Make sure punctuation is as perfect as possible)

F. Checking for understanding-

1.Again, a hobby is something you do for fun. Skateboarding, photography, reading, computer work, writing, building something.
2. A profession is what one does for a living. A hobby, most likely you won't make money with your hobby, if you do, it won't be your main goal, people have hobby's to do something they enjoy on their off time.
3. We all have hobby's, you just might not think of it as a hobby. If you enjoy practicing your guitar playing, that is a hobby. You may have lofty goals and perhaps they will come true some day, but for now it is a hobby that you enjoy.

G. Closure-

1.First, think of a hobby or two or more that you enjoy. Then write it down and describe to your classmates why you enjoy this hobby.
2. After everyone has their hobby's on paper, we will break up into small groups and you'll talk to your classmates about your hobby or hobby, why it is special to you, why are you passionate about it, and do you believe this hobby will be a lifelong love. You may start now.
7. Evaluation-
1.After walking around the room and correcting some punctuation and grammar, the students were able to write about their hobby's with general ease. They were also able to talk about their hobby's to their classmates and the classmates helped each other find the words that were needed to describe their hobbies.
2.This was a test of the students ability to write in English about something that they do every day. Then proceed to talk about it with their peers. Some students were better than others, but most of them were on the same level as far as speaking. The written part, was telling, that perhaps we need to spend more time with sentences, punctuation and such.
8. Teacher Reflection-
This day was a good class.
It was not "tested". It was not graded, it was meant to show to the students that they know more English than they think. They have the ability to talk about things in their life and get their point across in another language. With some more work like this, they will really break down the wall and begin speaking English fluently.
