Subsidiary Aims

Perhaps the most important element of any plan is the part where we say what our aims are.Jeremy Harmer in The Practice of English Language Teaching


Warmer/Lead-in (2-3 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

-The teacher shows a picture of a beach and asks students: "What is this?" -After eliciting the word "beach" from the students, she asks them: "What do you see in a beach?" "Is it hot or cold in the beach?" "What do you do when you go to the beach?" etc.

Exposure (3-4 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

-Teacher tells students that they are going to watch a video about the beach. -Teacher says: "Watch it carefully, then you will tell me what you see in the video." -Teacher plays the video.

Clarification (6-7 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

-T asks: "What did you see in the video? Tell me." -Ss tell the words related to the beach. (crab, sunscreen, sunglasses, swimsuit, sandcastle, rock, seashell, octopus, fish etc.) -T asks: "Is there a book? (no, there isn't) "Is there sun?" (yes, there is) "Is there a swimsuit?" (yes, there is) -T writes a question and an affirmative and a negative answer on the board to highlight the structure.

Semi controlled Practice (9-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Free Practice (5-6 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

(no, there isn't) -After the example, she changes the pairs and let them ask questions to each other. -Ss speak for 5 minutes in pairs. -T monitors the ss. -T helps them if they ask for help; otherwise, she doesn't intervene in order not to disrupt the fluency.
