Subsidiary Aims

  • My sub aim is speaking at the same context to provide students with the opportunity to practice fluency speaking.


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

The teacher will enter the class and set a situation that she has forgotten her best friend's birthday and ask students if they remember the important dates of their lives and give them a HO to talk about these two questions in pairs: 1. How do you remember appointments, things you need to buy, people's birthdays, etc? 2. Do you usually do everything you plan to do each day? If not, why not? Then I will have some WC feedbacks.

Pre-Reading (5-6 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

The teacher will prepare students for the text by removing the blockers and pre-teaching some words (four words: A Priority, An Interruption, Procrastinate, Dread) by eliciting and modeling the words.

While-Reading (9-10 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist reading task

The teacher will give students the HO. Before that she will explain the task and them to read quickly alone to mach the headings and paragraphs in a group of three. Then each group will stick their matched reading poster on the board, they will stand up and go around the class see the other groups posters and at the end Ss will find their answer key under their chairs. (the teacher will stick it before the class)

While-Reading #2 (8-9 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed reading tasks

The teacher will give instruction to read the text quickly and answer the questions on the HO. Then she will give the HOs. Then they will check in pairs and get the WC feedback by nominating them.

Post-Reading (10-12 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and personalize the topic

The teacher will change their groups and assign each paragraph to a student and ask students to make a question from that paragraph and ask it from their partner. Then she will give them a HO to talk about in pairs. And if time ask each to write their tomorrow's plan on a piece of paper and talk about it with their partner and go around the class to find the most similar plan to theirs.

Delayed Error Correction (2-3 minutes) • To show awareness of students' errors and give them a feedback

The teacher will write some of the students nice sentences on the board and then also draw the students' attention to some of their errors and correct them by asking Ss.
