Teaching Practice 7
Elementary level


In this lesson, Ss will learn about "what and where" questions. Firstly, they will listen to an audio recording and answer a few WH-questions. . T will teach the meaning, form and pronunciation.Following that, Ss will do various exercise to practice the WH-questions. And lastly, they interview each other using the WH-questions.


Abc Audio Recording

Main Aims

  • To provide clarification, review and practice of "what and where" questions in the context of people

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy speaking practice using WH-questions in the context of people


Warmer/Lead-in (2-3 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T projects pictures on the WB. In pairs, T ask Ss to discuss and answer the following: “What are their jobs?” “Where do they work?” T discusses with WC. Ss are put in pairs to encourage them to interact in English.

Exposure (3-5 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a listening exercise

Gist listening exercise: T writes "Where does she work?" on the WB. T plays an audio recording and check with WC after that. Detailed listening exercise: T distributes HO and ask Ss to listen in detail and circle the correct answers. In pairs, T ask Ss to check answer with their partner. T checks with WC.

Highlighting (3-5 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

T projects the text from the audio recording on WB. WH-questions are removed from the text to draw students' attention to the target language. T asks Ss in pairs to fill in the gaps. T asks a few of them to come up and write the answers in on the WB.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

T explains meaning, form and pronunciation to WC. T elicits Ss to come up with WH- questions. Write on WB: "Where" and "What" - When do we use them? Elicit Ss for examples using "Where": Where do you live? Where is she from? Where does he work? What is her name? What is her favourite colour? (If no answer, remind Ss about previous audio recording) Show slide: There are two ways of asking, WHERE/WHAT + DO/DOES + SUBJECT + VERB OR WHERE/WHAT + BE + SUBJECT E.g. Where does she work? Where = Question does = Do/Does she = Subject work = Verb Teach contractions: What is = What's Where is = Where's How about: Where are = Where're Is this correct? No Where am I = Where'am Is this correct? No

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more semi-controlled practice

In pairs, Ss have to re-arrange the words in the correct order (Exercise 1). T will write 1 to 6 on the WB and get Ss to come up to write the answers. T goes through it with the WC. T will ask stronger students to help the weaker ones if they finish early. T will move one S from one end to the other to make a new pair. T group Ss in new pairs. For exercise 2, SS have to fill in the gaps. Ss practice writing questions as well as answers. T distributes HO. T check answer with WC. Working in pairs allows the stronger Ss to help the weaker ones. This motivates them and increases STT.

Semi-Controlled Practice (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with practice of the target language

Ss have to interview their classmates in the classroom. They have to come up with three or four questions in pairs using the word/phrases on the slides. They have to use "what" and "where" questions. Ss will mingle and ask the questions to their classmates. They have to write their answers on the HO as well. T will go around and monitor Ss. T will ask a few Ss to share their interviews.
