Language clarification (15-20 minutes) • Focusing on phrasal verbs in the context of air travel.

Before talking about phrasal verbs, I will pre-teach the vocabulary words that we will be using as phrasal verbs to do activity 4 on page 154. I will ask questions and elicit the words and as they say the correct word I will write it on the board. Then I will use those verbs they gave me and lead it into using it as a phrasal verb. I will ask the students to remind me of what a phrasal verb is. I will ask Ss to give me some verbs, which i will write on the board. Then i will ask them to give me some prepositions and make a chart next to the verbs that they gave me. I will then ask them to give me a phrasal verb using this chart. Then i will write a sentence to insure that they have understood. Example: drop up run out "I ran up the steps" "He dropped out of school" Ss will then do ex4 on page 154 individually. They will then check their answers with pairs. For feedback i will put the answer key on the board and have them check and ask for any questions.

Controlled Practice (6-12 minutes) • Practice speaking using the phrasal verbs

I will have students pair with a partner and ask them the following the questions one at a time which they will talk about with their partner. As they switch partners i will change the question.
