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

I'll start ask students "What do we know about Mark and Kim?" and I'll do by asking some question, which should help with answers.

Exposure (5 minutes) • To provide a model of the task and highlight useful words and phrases

I'll take few words and phrases from new text, support them with picks and do some drilling. I'll also, will do some drilling with words from ex #1 pg 32, because their in the text I'll give them.

Task (10-15 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

First, I'll choose A and B students, then explain that A students will read text about Jo and B students will read about Susie and answer the questions in the table. I'll also demonstrate how to do it by drawing a table on the board and, with students' help, I'll fill in Kim's column. Then I'll give to students the texts and ask them to read by themselves for few minutes. At the same time I'll provide a table along with the texts, which they will fill in correct column.

Task (10 minutes) • Fluency Practice

Once the students are finished filling in Jo's or Susie's columns, I'll demonstrate with another student how they should fill in the other column, by asking her questions. I'll put everyone in to pairs and tell them to ask each other questions about the other women (the one they don't have). After students are finished, I'll pick some students to help me and fill in the table on the board.

Report (5 minutes) • To allow students to report on how they did the task and how it went

On the board I'll put Kim's, Jo's and Susie's names. First, I'll make example by saying who should be Mark's date and why, than I'll ask each student for their opinion. As they tell me theirs, I'll put checks next to the names. A name will get the most checks, will be Mark's date.

Language Practice (5 minutes) • To provide students with practice of the task language

If any time left: I'll put few model sentences like " He/she likes reading" on the board and by using new vocabulary make new sentences and have everyone to repeat them.
