Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of "wh" questions in the context of music

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice for "wh" questions in the context of music


Warmer/Lead in (4-5 minutes) • To introduce the context of the lesson and get students interested

Slide: musicians *elicit musician, band, singer - mfp - get the topic going by mentioning your favourite band. - try to elicit questions (who, where, when, why, whose, which, what - probably can't elicit all at this point) Music: 2.17 min (PW time) PW: students will stand up and ask each other "who is your favourite musician?" "where is he/she from?" "what is your favourite music type?" they need to get answers from at least 3 people. FB: peer check, they compare their answer for 1 min. WC - ask a couple of students what they found out

TL Reading (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with the opportunity to discover the TL

Slide: quiz HO: quiz -Model 1-2 questions ** they don't all begin with wh (how long/many/old) - model one of those as well (1) ..... did Madonna make her first record? a)in the seventies b)in the eighties etc. "Are the answers about a place?" (no) "Are they about time/date?" (yes) "What do we use to ask about time?" (when) *note on WB (5).... were the Beatles together? a) for 5 years b) for 10 years etc. "Is it about a time period?" (yes) "Are they dates?" (no) (if necessary, draw two lines to signify it's a two word phrase) -- they should understand that filling in the blanks is the point, not knowing which instrument Elton John plays... PW: Students will complete the quiz in pairs. **monitor for performance, they will likely have trouble with some (whose) FB: Peer check "When you're done, stand up, look at other peoples answers" Listening: 2.44 min (play once unless they really need to hear it twice) -- go over the words/phrases noted during monitoring. mfp.

Clarify Meaning (12-14 minutes) • To clarify and review the meaning of the target language

HO: Sentences from the text Slide: Sentences from the text PW: Ask students to figure out what the questions are asking. Model: "When did Madonna make her first record?" "Is this question about time or place?" (time) FB: WB, w students HO: Meaning underlining exercise PW: Students will underline the correct word in pairs. This might be quite confusing, but they should be able to do most as it's similar to the previous exercise. FB: Peer check (ask people around you) + HO (answer key) **monitor closely, use CCQs to clarify further if necessary

Controlled Practice (7-9 minutes) • To provide clarification on the target language's word order and form, in addition to providing an opportunity for controlled practice of the TL

HO: sentence jumble PW: In pairs, students will complete the sentence jumble. Certain phrases have been grouped together to alleviate possible confusion. FB: Peer check, give your HO to your neighbour. Read over, check. Do you agree? HO answer key. Check. Return HO. WB: Pick one of the sentences and elicit its structure on the WB. What type of music do you listen to? pronoun + noun + preposition + noun + verb + pronoun + verb + preposition what: question listening to music: verb phrase Go over pronunciation again. Focus on sentences that seemed unclear during monitoring.

Freer Practice (5-7 minutes) • To provide students with an opportunity to use TL in a conversational manner

HO: 'Guess who?' cards Students will play a quick game of 'Guess Who?' by asking wh questions about musicians. PW: Students will pair up. One will be given the photo of a famous Turkish musician, the other will ask 'wh' questions to guess who it is. They will have 5 minutes (timed by a song). Winner will be declared musical geniuses.
