To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in a conversation in the context of last weekend activities
To provide review of simple past in the context of weekend
Procedure (42-52 minutes)
The teacher starts by showing a few activities and asks Ss what the people did last weekend.
The teacher gives the students a questionnaire about their last weekend. The students ask the questions from a partner and then report back to the class what they have found out.
The teacher gives a handout to the class and asks the students to do it. Later he gives the answer key to the students and asks them to check their answers. Then the teacher introduces the functional exponents using a model conversation and uses CCQs to introduce the meaning and then drills the sentences.
The teacher uses the questions of exercise 6 to form pairs and get the students ready for the conversation. The teacher gives each student either the question or the answer and uses colors to help students find the right answer and later checks to see if the pairs are correctly made. Then he points to the model conversation which is being shown on the WB using the projector and asks the students to make conversations similar to that. The teacher should monitor the activity and note the error for a delayed error correction.
The teacher asks for W/C feedback and also talks about the errors he heard during the previous stage.
