Teacher’s Activities
3 minutes
Warm-up(GROUP WORK)
-Now I will divide our class into 2 teams: A and B. Your task is to arrange the letters to make 5 meaningful words as soon as possible. For example, this is ENGLISH.
1. GRINTIW => WRITING
2. ACTRH => CHART
3. TRENPSIDOC =>DESCRIPTION
4. GERENY => ENERGY
5. SOPNUNCOTIM => CONSUMPTION
- After the warm-up activities, I think you have enough energy to start your lesson. Our lesson today is writing a chart description of energy consumption.
7 minutes
Task 1(GROUPWORK) 
Firstly, I would like the whole class to close your book. Now look at the blackboard. As you can see, there are 5 sentences with 8 blanks. They are main features of a column chart. 
A. The second largest energy consumption belonged to (1) with (2) million tons
B. (3) made up the largest amount of the chart ((4) tons)
C. The chart indicates the (5).in Highland in 2000
D. Nuclear and (6) accounted for the (7) amount of energy consumption (20 million tons)
E. The total consumption was (8) million tons 
Answers: 
1. coal
2. 40
3. Petroleum
4.57 million 
5.energy consumption
 6. hydroelectricity
7. smallest
8.117 
Now, I would like to invite you to play one more game. There are still 2 teams A & B as before. Each team will have 25 pieces of paper. Your task is to find 8 correct answers and after you have find all the answers, one group member has to run as fast as possible to stick it on the blackboard. Are you clear about the rule? Can we start playing now?
Here is the chart. Are you ready?
 - So which group is the winner? Give them a big applause please.
10 minutes
Task 2: 
Now look at the blackboard. Who can help me to reorder these 5 sentences to make a paragraph? Dương (Hà), can you help me?
Answer: The right order is C-E-B-A-D
 Now class, pay attention please. Can you point out the main ideas of these sentences? Manh, can you?
- Answer: The first sentence tells readers what the chart is about, its year and its location. The second is the total value. The third sentence is the largest value, and then the second largest and the smallest value of the chart.
Thank you very much for your excellent answer. Now I add one more phrase (As can be seen) to make it a full paragraph. It is called Reference Structure. 
So now, I will review the outline of a chart description. 
Class, how many parts are there in a chart description?
Answer: 3 part: Introduction, Body and Conclusion
What should be included in each part?
Answer: 
In Introduction part, there should be the general information of the chart (what is it about?), it time, location as well as the overall trends. 
In body part, we present the numbers effectively, from the highest value to the lowest value or the lowest value to the highest one. If there are many columns, we just present the most significant ones.
In conclusion part, we sum up the global trends.
That’s right. So what do we have to notice when describing a chart?
Answer: We have to notice about: 
Format: 2 kinds INDENTED FORMAT & BLOCK FORMAT (Block format are more formal.)
Indented: ---------------
 -------------------
 -------------------
 ---------------
 -------------------
Block: ---------------
 ---------------
 ---------------
 ---------------
 ---------------
Verb Tense: Simple present or simple past
The use of reference structure
Language: Formal
- So to help you gain more knowledge about the language use in describing a chart, we come to task 3.

Task 4 (INDIVIDUAL)
Class, you have already learnt the outline, format and language when describing a chart. Now, I would like you to open the book and do task 2 in the textbook individually. You have 3 minutes to finish your writing. 
Ok, class. I want to hear your writing. You, can you read aloud your writing? Other students pay attention to her. 
Ok, that’s good. Does anyone have comment about her writing?
You please!

Task 5 (GROUP WORK)(if there is enough time)
- Wow, I see that our class is very talented. After completing task 2, you are all aware of writing a small paragraph describing a chart. Now, I would like you to work in groups and do another handout (B). You will write some missing sentences of an essay based on given cues. And you have 5 minutes to do this task. After that, I would like some of you write your paragraph on the black board.
Write the missing sentences of this essay based on the following cues:

In 2005, the total amount of energy consumption was around 170 million tons while this value stood at 117 millions in the year of 2000. In 2000, petroleum made up the largest amount of consumption with 57 million tons. However, in 2005, it lost its rank when accounting for only 45-minute test million tons. 
45 million tons of coal was consumed in 2005, which made coal rank as the most energy consumption in this year. This number nearly doubled its amount in 2000 (20 million tons). Remarkably, nuclear and hydroelectricity consumption in 2005 was about 4 times as much as that in 2000. It jumped from the lowest position in 2000 to the most popular source of energy in 2005. 
In conclusion, more and more energy was used by people in Highland. Especially, energy generated from alternative sources was becoming more and more popular. 
Cues:
