To teach the students how to make questions in simple present using the third operson auxiliary 'does' in the context of free time activities.
To have the students do a reading task by which they will be prepared to move on to the next stage which is the ability to make questions using 'does' in the context of 'free time activities'.
Procedure (37-45 minutes)
I will show photos of different couples and will ask the students if they think the two people are a good match. If they say no, I will ask them why not.
I will divide the class into two groups, one consisting of men and the other consisting of women. I will give them the instructions and will give each group one piece of paper and ask them to work with their partners and write 6 questions to Sara, their new girlfriend, and Jack who is their new boyfriend respectively. Then they will read out their questions to the other group.
I will ask the students to read the text for gist and find things Mark likes and one thing he doesn't. Then they will check with their partners and go to the board and stick the answers written on pieces of paper in front of the incomplete sentences 'Mark likes' and 'Mark doesn't like'.
The students will read the text once more to answer some detailed questions. Then they will check with their partners. Then some students will go to the board and write the answers.
At this stage, I will draw the students' attention to part 7 which is on grammar. The students will fill in the gaps with 'does' or 'doesn't' as they have already been exposed to this auxiliary verb in the text and by having answered some detailed questions. Then, they will check the answers with their partners and go to the board and write the correct answers on the board.
At this stage I will ask the students some CCQs to make sure they have learned the target language. Then I will present the form which will be followed by some substitution drills.
The students are asked to make questions using the auxiliary 'does'. Then one person in each group will go to the board and check the answers written on a piece of paper stuck onto the wall.
I will ask them to choose one family member and write the relation they bear to that person on a piece of paper and stick it onto their shirts. It will be easy for their partners or classmates to see that easily and ask them questions about that specific family member. Then they will go back to their seats and give as much information as they remember about the family members to their partners.
