Material Development Example : Development 1

Well, at this moment, I want to share about material development. And here is an example of how to develop a material. A material itself doesn't matter, but developing is. So, it depends of the teacher and the level and member of the participants so the teacher can make an appropriate development. After posting this first development, the second and third development will be posted later.

Level : Intermediate

This is taken from an IM chat between two best friends, Cindy and Dominic as they plan a trip away to a movie festival on the weekend.

Cindy             : OMG!!! I got ticket for the festival. Can you make it?

Dominic        : J I sure hope so!  KYFC; I am asking my mom today.

Cindy             : If she says yes, how do you want to get down there? I can’t get hold of a car. Could you possibly get hold of some transportation?

Dominic        : How about if I Borrow my brother’s car? He owes me a favour.

Cindy             : :-X that would be fantastic!

Dominic        : But would you mind helping pay for petrol. I am broke at the moment.

The roles:

  • The teacher’s role is as facilitator who sets up the material. He is also as a pronunciation model. Besides that, he is also as a mediator by asking the learners to find some acronyms used in chatting.
  • The material’s role is information provider about language used when we are chatting, and acronyms.
