Procedure

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

Ss see a photo of London and work in pairs to answer the questions in ex.1-a p.40 from English File (HO1) and then WCFB.

Exposure (3-4 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

Ss do ex. 1-a p.159 (HO2) and then they listen and check as FB

Highlighting (5-6 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

- Ss listen to a travel guide talking about the weather in London and do ex.1-C and then check with a partner. Next, Ss check the AK on the back of HO3. - Ss work in pairs to underline all the weather vocabulary from the trascript of the listening of ex.1-C (HO4) (a travel guide talking about the weather in London).

Clarification (5-6 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

T elicits the vocabulary the Ss underlined in the trascript and writes them on the WB and adds some more weather vocabulary. Next, the teacher goes through the MPF pattern. Please see LA.

Controlled Practice (4-5 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

- Ss fold HO2 and work in pairs to ask and answer each other about the weather in the photos. (What's the weather like?). T monitors and helps when needed.

Pre-activity (5-6 minutes) • To prepare Ss for the next and make accessible

- T posts the weather symbols on the board and elicits what they refer to from the students. - T asks Ss what the temperature is today in Siberia and elicits the words 'degree' and 'minus' and then draws the symbols (o) and (-) on the WB. Then, T asks Ss what the weather is like in their home town in winter, summer, spring, and autumn and what the temperature is in those seasons. 5 mins

Free Practice (15-20 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

- T explains that Ss are going to exchange information to complete a weather map for Europe. T tells Ss they are going to work in pairs to do the activity. T models with one students. T gets worksheet A and gives the student woeksheet B. T asks the student, 'What is the weather like in Germany? (rainy) and then T asks the student, 'What is the temperature in France?' (10). T writes the temperature and draws the symbol on the worksheet and shows the worksheet to the Ss. T and S swap roles. - Ss are given the worksheets (HO5) to do the activity. T monitors and helps when needed. - WCFB and DEC: T projects worksheet A on the board and asks Ss B to come to the board one by one to to complete Map A while Ss A confirm or correct the information provided. Ss swap roles.
