Procedure (29-45 minutes)
-Draw your name game -On the WB draw pictures for each letter of my name. -Elicit the meaning of the pictures, and my name. Now draw a picture for each letter of your name. ICQs: Do you write your name on the piece of paper? (no) Do you use English or Turkish words? (English) -Monitor -Model with a S - Try to guess your partner's name from the pictures. Everybody, stand up, find a partner and try to guess his/her name. -Monitor -Shuffle pairs FB - Ask SS about other SS' names.
-Group class into pairs -HO discussion questions Person A: Where are you thinking of going this summer holiday? Are you thinking of leaving Istanbul? Person B: What do you think about camping in the nature? What do you think about Istanbul? -Monitor
Read this short dialogue and compare your answers with Maria and Deniz's. -Monitor Talk to your partner, is it similar to what you discussed earlier or different? -FB - Elicit answers
Read again and underline the verbs in the dialogue. -Monitor -Peer check -FB - Project the dialogue on the WB and elicit SS' answers.
-Use OHT from the previous stage to clarify meaning and form. Is it present continuous or present simple? Does the verb ''think'' have the same meaning in both sentences? What does it mean in both sentences? (If the SS are struggling to answer- Which sentence expresses an opinion? Which sentence means I am trying to make a decision?) Does the verb ''see'' have the same meaning in both sentences? What does it mean in the first sentence? What does it mean in the second sentence? And what about the verb ''have''? -Highlight the form sub + thinking of/about + -ing -Highlight the weak form -Drill
Circle the correct answer. Work in pairs. -HO p.9, ex. 1 -Monitor -Peer check -FB - (If there is time and if SS' level allows it) Look at the sentences and your answers, and explain the meaning to your partner. For example, ''I think this is probably the best programme I've seen all year.'' is an opinion.
Complete the sentences with see, have or think in the present simple or present continuous. -HO p.9, ex.3 -Monitor -Peer check -FB
Think about yourselves. What are your plans or opinions? Think about some sentences with these words that you can discuss with your partner. -Elicit ideas and write them on the board. -Group the class in pairs. Have them speak about themselves using only stative verbs. Then using only dynamic verbs. -Delayed error correction
