Gr. (1) verbs with inf. and Vs-ing.
Intermediate. (E2) level

Description

In this lesson, Ss will learn about verbs with infinitive and verbs with ing ending. I will approach the lesson with the TTT method. I will start by putting flash cards with the verbs on them, and then I will ask each group of Ss to categorise them, correctly. Then, I will elicit answers from the groups. I will recategorise the flashcards if there are any mistakes. This will be followed by asking the CCQs in the analysis sheet to make sure that Ss understand the meaning, use, and form of the verbs. After this, to make sure that Ss can identify the verbs, I will ask them to open their books one page 106 of the book (Language Leader-Intermediate), and to underline similar verbs in the text. Afterwards, I will ask Ss to do exercises 3 and 4 on page 153 for the controlled practice. Finally, the freer practice will include a speaking activity related to the article on page 106 "Living to 100".

Main Aims

Procedure

Warmer/Lead-in (3-7 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

-T. divides Ss into groups of maximum 4-3, and asks them to nominate a representative. (the person who is oldest in age) -T. gives each group a flashcard with a verb on it. (verb+to/verb+ing/verb+ to/ing) -T. asks each group to form a sentence using the verbs they have. -T. tells Ss that they have 3 mins. (T. may add an extra minute if Ss seem to need it) T. asks ICQs: Are you going to work in groups? Yes Are you going to form sentences using the verbs you have? Yes Do you only have 3 mins? Yes -Ss start the task. -T. monitors. -Ss finish the task. -T. elicit answers from each group. -Representatives of groups answer. -T. writes answers on the board.

Test #1 (8-10 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

-T. draws a table on the board with three columns, each column will be for one of the 3 categories of verbs. -T. puts flashcards on the board. -T. asks each group to put the verbs in the correct order. -T. asks groups to check with each other when they finish. -T. tells give Ss a hint that the answers to the last task will help them. -T. tells Ss that they have 4 mins. (T. may add an extra minute if Ss seem to need it) T. asks ICQs: Are you going to work in groups? Yes Are you going to put the verbs in the correct order? Yes Are you going to check with the group next to you? Yes Do you only have 4 mins? Yes -Ss start the task. -T. monitors. -Ss finish the task. -T. elicit answers from each group. -Representatives of groups answer.

Teach (10-15 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

-T. recategorise the flashcards on the board, if there are any mistakes. -T. writes marker sentences on the board. (some sentences will be in the text on page 106 and some will not be in the text.) -T. asks meaning/ use CCQs on the analysis sheet. -Ss answer. -T. asks form CCQs on the analysis sheet. -Ss answer. -T. asks groups of Ss to read the text on page 106 and to underline the verbs that are similar to today's session. (5 minutes) -T. asks ICQs: Are you going to work in groups? Yes Are you going to read the text and underline similar verbs? Yes Are you going to check with each other? Yes Do you only have 5 minutes? Yes -Ss start the task. -T. monitors. -Ss finish the task. -T. elicit answers.

Test #2 (8-10 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

-T. asks Ss to individually do exercises G2 3,4 om page 153. -T. asks Ss to check with the person next to them, when they are done. -T. tells Ss that they only have 5 mins. -T. asks ICQs: Are you going to work individually? Yes Are you going to check your answers with the person next to you? Yes Do you only have 5 minutes? Yes -Ss start doing the exercises. -T. monitors. -Ss finish the task. -T. elicit answers. -Ss answers.

Free practice (15-25 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

-T. asks groups pf Ss to think of five things that they want to say to their older selves in the future, and to report these things to the class. (Ss must use today's TL) Model: "I want you to take a good care of your health. I advise worrying less. I suggest travelling a lot. Work less to enjoy having more time for yourself. I hope you grow old gracefully."
