To elicit from students some favorite places they have visited in Turkey. I will highlight archeological areas to introduce new vocab. To elicit from students favorite classic books they have read. I will highlight writers/authors to introduce new vocab.

Exposure (3-5 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

We will meet Freida by seeing her picture and listening to the interview one time. Question to answer: What is her nationality? What countries has she been to? What is her passion? FB: Check with your table group to see if you agree. Write an answer up when you are finished. All check together.

Highlighting (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

Work with a partner and answer questions about Frieda. Listen to the recording to check the answers. FB: Write up answers on the overhead.

Clarification (5-8 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Working in groups, Ss will have a sheet with part of the interview and another part of the interview cut into strips. They will try to put the strips together. Then they will listen again and see if it is correct. Then they will make changes if they need to.

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

The entire class will make a large circle. I will send around sheets and ask: Have you ever been to Sumela Monastery? If so, what is the answer? Yes, I have. or No, I have never been to Sumela Monestary. Error Checking with first or second time around. Then adding more without error checking as much.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

The Ss will work together in groups and determine if Frieda did certain activities. They will work through the exercise 2 on page 57. This time, they will carry out the questions in fuller detail. Perhaps do a demo with a student.

Free Practice--Talking about you (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

The Ss will answer the questions for themselves. Then, they will be writers and imagine the answer is always yes. The other students will ask questions "what/when/how/why. The Ss will be working in groups to convince each other that they have done different activities listed in section 3 on page 57. One person will be quizzed. The students will take turns asking the questions of each other. They will try to conviced the group that they have done dangerous things. At the end, the group will decide if they were telling the truth or not. FB: We will write the truth sentences and paste them on the board. Each group will try to guess which group did the bizarre things.
