Procedure (37-51 minutes)
T. shows a picture of a famous quiz show and elicits what it is. T. asks some questions related with quiz shows.She tells sts that they are going to do a quiz show.
T. posts some pictures related to the quiz show that will be in the following stage on the WB and asks sts to match them with the words which are ‘the moon, Beijing, Titanic, Christopher Columbus, an island, a mountain, a cab’. Then she elicits some words by using the pictures on WB together with some other techniques. After checking meaning, she does drilling practice together with marking stress.
T. divides the class into two groups to create a competetive atmosphere. After she gives them the instructions,she hands out the travel quiz with their backs up and gets them to start at the same time. Sts answer the questions of the travel quiz in their groups quietly so the other group members can’t hear them. When time is up, T. writes the answers on the WB. T. asks sts to look at the questions again and elicits from sts the name of the bold words at the beginning of each question; question words.
T. posts the Wh- questions and the things they ask about on the WB. Then she asks them to match. After giving some information about 'What time', answer form of 'Why' and the usage of 'How many' with some CCQs, she does some drilling exercise with these question words.
There is no need to pre-teach any vocabulary before the following exercise. T. divides the sts into two groups and tells them she is going to give a HO on which there are 8 questions. She does the example questions on the WB and hands them out. After they finish the exercise, they check their answers with their peers in their group. T. goes through the answers as WC and deals with the mistakes.
T. asks a student from group A and one student from group B to come to WB and gets one of them to ask a question from their list to the other student. At this point, T. encourages sts to ask extra questions by eliciting some after giving some clues if needed. Sts mingle and ask a student from the other group his/her questions. Finally T. nominates some of the sts to talk about what they learnt from their friends.
T. asks sts to prepare a quiz question in pairs to ask to the WC to get them to practise asking questions.
