Lesson Plan 1 Straightforward Elementary
To provide clarification and practice of present simple in the context of typical friends
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a present simple in the context of typical friends
Procedure (44-52 minutes)
1. Dr. Palmer says that women and men are different. What do you think? e.g. Cem, do you like dancing? Destina, do you play sports? (Define agree if necessary e.g.: I am a man. Yes or No? Yes? So, you agree that I am a man). 2. Do you agree? Yes? Put a tick, No? Put an x Yes No e.g. on board: They like the same things. Do you agree? ν x Do a demonstration with a student or two. 3.Monitor students to provide help where needed
1. Define the difference of man/men - woman/women Man=1 men=2+ woman=1, women=2+ e.g. Men (in the classroom) raise your hand: So, there are (number) MEN in the classroom. Ask women in the classroom to raise their hands: So, there are (number) WOMEN in the classroom. 2. Task 5: Compare your answers - introduction. /Model phrase to use: I think men talk about sports and women don't talk about sports, but I don't think women listen more to their friends/ (write that on board) 3. Do Task 5 (show it to them) 4. Monitor students. 5. Peer check 6. Nominate 2-3 students for feedback.
1. Draw a table to w/b to show how Qs are formed in present simple. Fill In the first one for do/does as an example and ask them to guess the rest as a w/c activity Do/Does Subject Infinitive Do I You We play sports? They watch movies? Does He She It 2. Draw a timeline. Explain that present simple talks about the present. Past Present Future Explanation: it something from the past that we do now and in the future. e.g. I wake up every day. I eat breakfast every day. Demonstrate with a S: What else do you do every day? Elicit. Use examples to avoid errors: Play you football? Right or wrong? Drill w/c for correction You play football? Right or Wrong? Drill w/c for correction Does she has a lot of friends? Right or wrong? Drill w/c for correction * Pronunciation: the verb is stressed while do you/does he... are contracted. Use an example then drill. Do you play sports? 2. Elicit examples from students. Remember to nominate to remember names.
1. Task 1 in page 25. Demonstrate with two Ss: T-S1. Do you watch TV? Yes I do. T-S2 (for S1): Does he watch TV? Yes he does. 2. Ask them to practice with the examples (in task 1) in pairs. If not nominate two more students for the first two examples in task 1. Make questions in Task 1. 3. Monitor students. 4. Peer-check
Task 2 p.25 1. Listen to a man and a woman. They talk about their friends. In part 1 (show them) mark the questions with a tick (v) or x. *If they do not understand: e.g. Listen (gesture) Do they play sports? Yes or No? Use mimics. 2. Students work and teacher monitors. 3. Peer check. 4. Feedback. Nominate then confirm with the class.
Task 3 1. Ask students the example questions in exercise 3. Demonstrate with S. Then w/c repeats. Drill w/c to get a yes /no he does/doesn't etc. response. E.g. does he play sports? Yes, he does/No, he doesn’t. 2. Put the Ss in pairs and ask them to answer the Qs in ex. 1 about the man and the woman in the recording, without looking at their answers. 3. Monitor. 4. Feedback: Nominate pairs for a questions and answers.
Task 4. Write on board: You/play sports with your friends? You/talk about personal things? Demonstrate with a S. Check for understanding: What do you have to do in this task? Ask a S to form a question (from the board) and ask someone from the class. Follow up with task 4. Ask them to work in pairs and form questions to ask each other. Monitor. Feedback: Is Dr. Palmer right/correct? Do you agree with Dr. Palmer? Nominate students. Elicit from students as much as possible. Dr. Palmer says that….but I think….
