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

I will start my lesson linking the previous lessons to mine, by talking about my family history, I will give the students the chance to give me one or two information about their background before moving on.

Pre-Listening (7-7 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

Before I move on, I will ask the students about some words I used when I was talking about my family background. After clarifying the meaning of the words that I think they may have trouble dealing with in the listening task, I will tell them that they are going to listen about a man talking about his family history, and give them Ho1 and ask them to read the questions for 1 minute to know what information they are going to listen for.

While-Listening #1 (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

The students will listen to the audio and find the answers, after the audio, I will give them time to peer check their answers, and If there are any answers they couldn't find, I will play it again.

While Listening #2 (14-16 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

I will give the students HO2 and tell them to read the questions for one minute before listening, and then to listen carefully to the audio to find the correct answers, and again peer check and replay the audio if needed, and nominate one student from each group to give the correct answer as a whole class feedback. If they finish early, I will hand them the if time activity to talk about what they think about the story they heard as a semi-controlled practice.

Post-Listening (10-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

I will ask the students to write one short paragraph about their family history containing some interesting information for 5 minutes, and then ask then number the students and ask them to move their seats and tell each other to read each others' paragraphs and talk about their family history. At the end, I will ask if they found out any interesting information about each others' family history and wrap up the lesson.
