Procedure (33-45 minutes)
First, two questions will be asked to introduce the topic and make the students ready for more discussions. The students will be asked to answer the questions in pairs for a minute, then the teacher will elicit the answers. In Lead-in part the Ss will be asked to talk about the pictures and predict the stories in pairs, then they will be asked to answer the Qs in the book after reading the short passage in the book. The teacher will provide help in case the Ss need the meaning of some words.
Pre-teach the vocabulary by contextualizing, providing the pronunciation and part of speech. After teaching each vocabulary CCQ ( Concept Checking Question) done by the teacher will assure her of the Ss learning.Then the students will be asked to read the Qs of the listening part in advance and underline the keywords in order to answer the questions while listening.
The Ss will listen to the listening part once and while listening will take necessary notes. Listening part will be played two times just in case the majority of the Ss have difficulty in understanding the essential details. After listening, the answers will be checked two by two and then by the whole class for open checking and correction by the teacher.
The students will get in groups of three, they will stand up and using the clues given by the book, produce their own stories through a mingling activity. Their practice will be monitored by the teacher. The teacher will take notes of occurred errors to write on the board later and ask the students to correct them in their groups. Then the teacher will elicit the answers and provide the correct ones.
The teacher checks the students' previous knowledge by asking them to talk about a past event in pairs and then to the whole class. In this part, the focus will be on Simple Past and Past continuous tenses.The teacher highlights the required tenses and introduces the new topic.She teaches the grammar through meaning, form, structure, and accuracy. First examples are provided that are clear about the differences between Past Perfect Simple and Past perfect continuous, during the whole process the teacher will make the Ss involved by asking them related questions, then form and structure will be taught in positive, negative and question forms and the Ss will get to know in what type of context this structure will be suitable to be used . The students' learning will be checked through a controlled practice given in the book, first individually, then by pair check and finally teacher's check. At this point, the correct pronunciation will be taught through a very short practice by listening and the whole class and some students by random and individually repeating the sentence.For more structural practice the students will do more controlled practice that follows the pronunciation part first individually, then checked in the pair and in the end by the teacher.To make the process of learning the most fruitful the students will refer to pages 105 and 108 in pairs of A and B to read the stories and retell them using the clues and the learned grammar.
