Main Aims

  • To provide students with Yes-No questions in present simple tense

Subsidiary Aims

  • To give the students the chance to use the target language to talk about themselves


Preparation (3-5 minutes) • To contextualize the target language

T will review the previous lesson very quickly by asking a few questions. "what did you talk about in Ebi's class?" she will also show the picture taken from the book to help them remember and ask "what is a Clan? a word" "where do they live? Scotland" " what do they wear?Kilt" and then she will refer to the two Scottish people "what were their names? Gordon, Hilary". She will ask the students to take a look at the table they have already filled and try to write 5 questions with their partners. She will ask 3 ICQs : "will you answer the questions too? no" "will you talk or write?write" "alone or in pairs? in pairs" Feedback will be given by nominating students.

Presentation (5-10 minutes) • To present the students with the target language which is yes/no questions in simple present

As T gets the feedback of the previous exercise, she elicits the question " Do you wear a kilt?" and puts it on the board. Then she will ask students to change YOU to HE so that she can have "Does he wear a kilt?" on the board as well. Next, T will elicit the short/complete answers for both questions. After that she will ask some CCQs : " are they about yesterday?no" "are they about tomorrow?no" "are they always true?yes". She will elicit the form and write it on the board.Then she will do some drilling and keep students changing the subject pronouns. Using her hands she will also focus on the rising intonation of Yes/No questions.

Practice 1 (2-3 minutes) • To have some controlled practice on TL

T will instruct them to do Ex1. They will check the exercise in pairs first and then ans answer key will be given. T will ask for further questions.

Practice2 (3-5 minutes) • To help the Ss focus more on form and the order of yes/no questions

T will model it by having some pieces on the board and eliciting from the students how to make a question. Then they will do Ex2. and then check the answers with their partners. T will ask an ICQ: " will you answer the questions too?" Whole-class feedback by having some cards on the board.

Practice3 (5-7 minutes) • To provide the Ss with a semi-controlled activity

T will ask the students to ask and answer the same questions and write short answers. An ICQ must be asked : "will you write your friend's answers?" To get the feedback, she will have some of them report what they have heard.

Production (10-15 minutes) • To keep students using the TL freely

T will instruct them to play "find someone who" game; T has mingled the exercises in the Grammar Focus part (page 141) to have more questions. She will ask an ICQ : "will you write names? yes" This will be followed by pairing up the students and asking them to report what they have got to their partners. Whole class feedback
