Look at the stages of a writing lesson below and think how you would prepare students to write a letter of complaint. Explain how you would deliver your lesson step-by-step (in bullet point). Follow the stages of a writing lesson but provide specific details and examples for each stage. (Write about 300 words).

  • Introduce the topic and ask students to discuss it in small groups, followed by feedback and discussion with the whole class

  • Assign the writing task

  • Ask students to consider who will be the target reader and to focus on the purpose of the task

  • Use language models to illustrate the appropriate form (e.g. other written texts, examples on board)

  • Brainstorm ideas in groups, after which the teacher or a student writes them up on the board. Students select which ones to use

  • Elicit how to put the ideas into a logical sequence and edit

  • Construct a skeleton text in small groups

  • Prepare a rough draft either individually, in groups or with the whole class

  • Ask students to tell you if they want you to repeat anything. (This is more effective than saying “Does anyone not understand?”)

  • The final written task may be given for homework

We aren't here to do your homework for you. However, I will give you a start by doing; 'for introducing the topic'.

Firstly you need to generate interest so you could talk about a bad experience that you have had as a customer, then get them to share their experiences. This would generate interest and also activate schemata. You might want to pre-teach any useful lexis after this stage and then provide a working modal for them.

That is all of the process I am prepared to do for you, just think how you would teach the lesson and write what you would do and why.

Yes i got the above answer:-

Thanks. How would I expand on

· I would next explain how to put the ideas into a logical sequence and edit.
Hi all,

I was hoping I could get a little bit of guidence with the same question. I don't expect anyone to answer the questions for me, but a nudge in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. The questions from check point four of my tefl course and the answers I have given are as follows:

Look at the stages of a writing lesson below and think how you would prepare students to write a letter of complaint. Explain how you would deliver your lesson step-by-step (in bullet point). Follow the stages of a writing lesson but provide specific details and examples for each stage. (Write about 300 words).
  • Introduce the topic and ask students to discuss it in small groups, followed by feedback and discussion with the whole class
Draw a sad face on the board and ask what emotion is being conveyed.
  • Draw person outside a restaurant. Say "The waiter was rude to the man/woman." Put students into small groups and ask them to discuss for five minutes what they would do if someone was rude to them. How would they solve the matter?
  • Ask their opinions individually and list each one on the board.
  • Ask other students if they agree or disagree and why?
  • Ask students what the person outside the resturant should do if the problem could not be resolved.
  • Discuss in small groups for five minutes before giving their views.
  • Elicit "Write a letter of complaint."
  • Assign the writing task
  • Inform the class of the writing task by saying "Today we are going to write a letter of complaint."
  • Ask students to consider who will be the target reader and to focus on the purpose of the task
  • Ask students to think about who they will be writing the letter to and what type of complaint they will make.
  • Use language models to illustrate the appropriate form (e.g. other written texts, examples on board)
  • Show example letters showcasing formal layout and style of writing, such as, a letter to the bank complaining money is missing from a customers account/a mother complaining to a headmaster that her son/daughter is not getting enough homework/customer complaining of rotten food sold by a market retailer etc. Or articles from newspapers where readers do not agree with something that was printed.
  • Give five minutes of gist reading of these language models to give students inspration for the writing task ahead.
  • Bullet point each on the board.
  • Brainstorm ideas in groups, after which the teacher or a student writes them up on the board. Students select which ones to use
  • Put students into small groups and give five minutes to discuss and come up with other examples of when a letter of complaint would be appropriate and to whom the letter would be addressed to. Once this is done, students are to give their ideas and either a student or I would write these ideas up on the board. Students chooses which ones they prefer.
  • Elicit how to put the ideas into a logical sequence and edit
  • Ask students to think about the layout and the stlye in which they will be writing. Give five minutes to discuss how they wish to structure thier letter to ensure the information displayed is in logical sequence. Ask "Who is the complaint aimed at?/What is the complaint about?/What actions do you wish to be carried out as response to the complaint?"
  • Ask students in groups to give their ideas to ensure the ideas they have are in the correct order. If they are not, ask other students to help correct them.
  • Construct a skeleton text in small groups
  • Put students into small groups and give them five to ten minutes to create a very rough first draft together.
  • Prepare a rough draft either individually, in groups or with the whole class
  • Ask students if they prefer working individually, as part of a group or if they all wished to work on the task at hand as a whole and then spend the last part of the lesson creating a tidier first draft.
  • Ask students to tell you if they want you to repeat anything. (This is more effective than saying “Does anyone not understand?”)
  • Throughout the lesson I would ask students individally if they needed anything to be repeated and would ask concept questions to ensure they understood the information being conveyed.
  • The final written task may be given for homework
  • As the preparation for this writing task can take quite a long time and most probably would take up all of lesson time, it is a good idea to suggest writing up the final draft of the letter of complaint at home and bringing it in for the next lesson.
