Lesson Plan: Idioms that Inspire

Name: Patrick D. Shaw

Class: Theory of Knowledge, 11th graders

School: Mount St. Mary Academy


Materials:

Overhead projector, Paper, Pen, Chinese Idioms and Their Stories, Foreign Language Press, Beijing.


Set:

Can any of you finish the following statements:

Killing two birds with ________________.

The early bird gets the ________________.

While the cats away, the _________ will play.

Great. Now what can you tell me about those statements? Can they be applied to everyday life? Can they be applied to tasks that we may face?


Objectives:

Students will be able to understand and explain the concept of idioms.

Students will be able to understand examples of Chinese idioms.

Students will create an idiom that will serve to inspire them to greater achievement.


^ Guided Practice:

The teacher will read the title of one of the Chinese Idioms and then ask students to try and determine what moral the concept is trying to teach or reinforce.

Students will spend a two-three minutes in small groups brainstorming possible topics that the idiom is addressing. Then a reporter will mention the first pick from each group to the larger group of students.

Once the students have guessed, the teacher will read the story about the idiom and see which group was the closet to the true lesson.

Repeat the process with two other idioms. This will give the class some idea on what to look for in an idiom and its story.


Independent Practice:

Now that the students have had several examples of idioms, it is time for them to create their own idiom that will inspire them to greater heights in their intellectual, personal, emotional or spiritual life. They will need to include a topic and story to support the idiom. Creativity is essential in this exercise. Be sure to give students examples on where they can locate other examples of idioms, both from western and eastern cultures.


Closure:

Have students read the beginnings of their idioms. Then have someone define idiom in his/her own words.
