To give students semi-controlled speaking practice to develop spoken accuracy
Procedure (38-46 minutes)
After greeting, the T will fix various photos of celebrity people, clothes, and countries on the WB to lead the Ss to the context.The T will elicit possible ideas from them describing the given photos.
The Ss will be provided with a HO which contains questions related to the very photos. Ss will work in groups to answer these questions. The T will write sentences reported from them and elicit a timeline for each tense. FB will be given if they fail to tackle this target. The T will include CCQs to confirm that understanding the TL has taken place.
The Ss will work in groups to determine the accurate time phrases which express finished or in progress actions found in an extraction taken from the textbook (p.42, ex. 2).
The T will give the Ss an extracted list of irregular verbs taken from the textbook (p.42, ex.4-5) to work in pairs and put these verbs in two groups: Group A where the past participle and past simple forms are the same: Group B where they are different. The T will encourage the Ss to add extra verbs for each group.
The T will provide the Ss with a HO to work in groups. They will make the past participle of the verbs in brackets and underline the time phrases. T will monitor to make sure that the Ss are on the right path.
Ss will work in pairs to talk about their real life experience using the TL. It could be about their present hobbies, jobs, studies, etc. Then, the Ss will pick the activity they prefer and share it with the class. The other students give FB explaining if they have also done the same or not, how often they do it, when they started it, etc. They may use the simple past as well as the simple present when necessary.
