Procedure (50-64 minutes)
I will start showing an old house picture via PPT and I will ask for description about how it looks. After that I will introduce them a character who moved from the old house and I will ask them to guess why he moved. This is followed by a new house picture which is the character is plannig to move. Finally I will ask them which one they would prefer.
I am going to hang a paper on the wall outside the classroom based on self-introduction of the character involving target grammatical structure. Students will work in pairs. One of them will dictate which is on the paper and the other will write it. This is going to be a competition. The pair finishing first wins. After that they will read the text and discuss why the character is moving. Finally, I will project how to use the prepositions by eliciting.
I am going to project a Turkey map and ask students to work in group.One of them will choose one of the cities on the map and try to tell the other group members it, not using the city name but using the prepositions.
I am going to hand out an exercise in which students will choose the correct answer. They will work individually at first and check in pair and then we will check as whole class.
I am going to hand out the students the list of prepositions and phrases. Students will tick the phrases that are true for them and start to work in group. They will speak using these phrases.
I am going to hand out ID cards. Some of them will be house agents and the others will be customers. These customers will look for a house which has some features such as being near city center or in a modern place.They will work in groups changing their partner after having conversation for a while.
I am going to ask them to write a paragraph about their hometown using the prepositions. They will introduce their hometown and then have conversation about them. If still there is extra time, I will make them change their partner and keep working.
