Procedure (36-45 minutes)
The teacher will enter the class after the break time so that there is a strong possibility that students will not remember the grammar. Therefor, the teacher will start the class by asking the students to give her some examples of the grammar they have learned through the reading. The teacher will write some of that sentences on the board. ( both affirmative and negative form of the sentences). One of the sentences that the teacher will write on the board is "he's been to star wars conferences all over the world" or the teacher can write" I've seen the first film over a hundred times". After that, the teacher will help them with some possible problems like pronunciation or the difference between "I have" or "I've".
First of all, the teacher will ask the difference between "simple past" and " present perfect" by writing two examples on the board. The teacher will write " I've seen Harry Potter" and "I watched Harry Potter last night" on the board. First, the teacher will give the students one minute to think bout the difference. After that, she will tell the students that when we know the exact time, we use ......... (simple past) and when we do not know the exact time, we use ............ ( present perfect). Then the teacher will give the students one gap-filled hand out about the actor, Ewan McGregor and ask the students to put the verbs in the correct form of the "present perfect" or "past simple". The students first do the exercise individually. After they finish, the teacher ask the students to check their answers in pairs. While the students are checking their answers in pairs, the teacher will write the answer key on the board.
The teacher will use written model examples on the board to ask students make the question form. First, the teacher give the students one minute to work in pairs and write the question forms. After they are done, the teacher will provide them the answers. After that, The teacher will write " read", " watch", "listen" and "be" on the board and ask each students to make one question for each verb. The teacher will write" Have you watched Titanic?" as an example on the board. After the students wrote their questions, the teacher will make them to stand up and walk around the class and ask each other their questions. Before starting the activity, the teacher tell the students to follow the first question with some " past simple" questions like " when did you watch Titanic?
The teacher will write three sentences about herself using "I have" and " I haven't" on the board. The teacher will tell the students that two of them are a true sentence but one of them is a lie. Then, the teacher will give one minute to the students to write some questions in pairs in order to find out which sentence is a lie. After they finish, the teacher will ask the students to ask the questions they have written. The teacher will answer some of their questions and at the end, the students should guess which one is a lie. The teacher will provide the students the correct answer. For the next part, the teacher ask each students to write three sentences about themselves. As what the teacher did, one of them should be a lie. After the students finish, the teacher will ask them to stand up, walk around the class, find a partner and read their questions for one another and by asking some questions try to guess which sentence is a lie. Then, the teacher will ask the students to change their partner and do the same thing. And that's the end of the class!
