Procedure (36-56 minutes)
T sets the lesson context by connecting the lesson with the lesson before by asking students to write some vocabulary which they learnt from the previous lesson
T sets the students for reading a text about a family. Then asks them to answer true and false questions about it. After that T takes FB from the Ss.
T sets the Ss to circle the adjectives in the reading text which they had. Then T asks the Ss to come and write some of them on the WB
T writes some sentences on the WB and starts by clarifying the meaning.e.g. T might use realia at this stage by asking some Ss to come and using them to check Ss understaning of the TL. Then T clarifies the form from the Ss and might even ask one Ss to come and write the form. Lastly, T clarifies the pronunciation by showing the Ss where is the stress and might even write the phonemic transcription of some words.
T sets the Ss to answer fill in the gap practice. T monitors Ss while doing so and checks their answers. After that T gives them an answer key; for FB T writes some of the errors of the Ss on the WB if there are any and elicits the correction from the Ss
T shows the Ss three pictures on the WB and sets them to write four sentences describing these people using the superlative form of adjectives. T monitors them carefully to check their writing to see whether there are any mistakes to clarify to them after the activity. Then T takes FB from the Ss
T talks about his family using the superlative forms and refers to the reading text that was used at the beginning to give the Ss a model to follow since they are going to describe the physical appearance of their families to each other using the superlative form of adjectives. T monitors and collects some mistakes from the Ss if there are any
T writes on the WB the errors which he collected while monitoring and elicits the correction from the Ss
