I haven't taught this lesson yet, so if you find some mistakes, please let me know.
First I'll teach them the expressions for both parts. I'll probably ask for volunteers to give me examples throughout. Then we'll go through some of the book (the page number isn't there because I was finishing up the ppt without having the book). Then I'm going to pass out the survey. When the students complete the surveys I will collect them and use them to make a family feud game (many templates available on waygook) which we will play the next week. During the game I'll use the expressions learned during this chapter. "What did they say?" "We think they said ____." etc...

I think the main point of this chapter is to get the students to understand when and how to use "say" and "said." My teacher also likes to have the students learn some key vocabulary from the story in the book so we have a worksheet (he makes it, I don't have the file) for them that has the English word and the Korean translation. I have a lower level and a higher level and I modify my plan accordingly.

I briefly cover and introduce the difference between 'say' and 'said' (sorry, no fancy powerpoint, I just use the book/board). We use a couple listening activities from the book to give a few examples of the how to use the words appropriately. I then give them their vocabulary worksheet and have them repeat after me once and then practice writing the words after. For my higher level students I ask them to then create 3 sentences using the words and write it on the back of their paper. For my lower level students I have created sentences already using some of the words and have them printed out on strips of paper. I then divide the students up into 2 or 3 groups (depending on class size: Higher lvls 3 groups of 8/lower 2 groups of 5) and have them stand in a line in order to play the telephone game using either the sentences they created or the ones I already made. For my high level students I have them bring the paper with their sentences to the lines and my co-teacher picks one of the sentences from the first persons' papers of each group. Then on the count of three they begin whispering the sentence to the next person in line. The main rule is: ENGLISH ONLY! If we hear Korean, then the whole team is disqualified for that round (no one wants to be the reason their team looses so they tend to follow that rule). Also they have to use the phrase "What did you say?" or "Pardon me?" if they don't understand and then the person whispering has to say: "I said __________." I am standing at the end of the lines and whichever team whispers the correct sentence in my ear first gets 3 points, the next group to finish gets 2, and the last group gets 1 point. When a round finishes, the person at the front of the line moves to the back and a new sentence is picked from the next students' paper. The same applies for the lower level just with the pre-written sentences.

It may seem a little confusing at first but after one practice round the students will get the jist of the game and it will get more and more exciting as the game goes on!
