Procedure (36-47 minutes)
Have you ever got an odd situation between you and your neighbours. The holy prophet Muhammad said:(Angel Gapriel came and kept ordering me to take care of my neighbours untill I thought that my neighbour will become an angel) the meaning from my translation, a jew neighbour of the holy prophet used to throw the garbage in front of the holy prophet's door every night to obstacle the prophet's way to praying in the dark, few days passed and the holy prophet didn't see any garbage,so he went to check on his jewish neighbour. when the neighbour saw the holy prophet he asked him, why are you coming!? the holy prophet said I came to check on you, when I didn't see the garbage I was worried abou you, the Jew became a muslim. if u have a bad neighbour what would you do discuss in groups
- take this HO2 Fold it under the first exercise, and read it, try to scan the text in the text page for these questions, you have only two minutes. If I see the majority didn't finish on time may be I will give them one minute more. - check in pairs, - monitor for any question or any problems - unfold the paper and read the text again to answer these questions in the second exercise. you have 4 minutes. - check in pairs. - give them the answer key to check their answers.
give the ss the HO1 and ask them to match the a-f with the rules 1-3. Most of the ss are already familiar with the articles. I'll try to monitor and check especially about the usages of no article/ zero article. give them the answer key or write it on the board or elicit it as it is suitable. I'll try to elicit the rules quickly, highlight some more details and move to the next step of practicing the articles exercise.
It is all written in the HO in they can figure what is required for themselves, but If I have to say: in this HO we will fill in the gaps with the suitable article, do the exercise of the articles, I'll monitor and check if there is any common problem of the topic, I will stop the ss and highlight the point. highlight the weak, and strong form of the articles. switch the groups to check each other.
break the 'quantifiers" world to quantity+ ify+ er: elicit the concept of quantifiers and get their functions: elicit the meaning of plenty, (few, little: negative meanings), all, many some of the quantifiers are used with countable, some are with uncountable, and some with both.
Do the exercise , tackle any problems related to the points, reinforce, general ideas, or specific details.
