Description

This lesson continues with a similar context to the previous lesson, but changes the focus to grammar. This grammar is not new for these Ss, but they still need review and practice to help them decide between present perfect simple and continuous. It will be a guided discovery language lesson (PPP):

Main Aims

  • : To provide Ss with clarification, review and practice of present perfect simple and continuous in the context health and illlnesses

Subsidiary Aims

Procedure

Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

The Ss will view the comic strip on the board. The Ss will guess what sickness I act out in charades. Ss will take turns coming to the front and acting out a sickness.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a listening clip

to expose Ss to the TL in context through a text or situation, in this case through listening (Grammar ex 3a).

Highlighting (2-4 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

to encourage Ss to notice the TL (ex 3b), and in this case find out what the Ss know. (ex 3c will round this listening sequence off).

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

– to focus Ss on MFP of the TL. Using a guided discovery worksheet will help make this more S-centred (see below) – (ex 3d – e).

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

to check Ss’ understanding of meaning & form, e.g. through a gap-fill. With higher levels, this is optional, but if you think Ss need something more, choose either ex a or b from p 134.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Ss practice the target language
