Procedure (40-25 minutes)
T introduces the vocabulary which was taught in the previous lesson by quizlet. Quizlet (https://quizlet.com/_6hp4kw)
Have the students listen to the audio ex3a. Complete the questions. Ss will work in groups of 5. They will have ‘help cards’ if needed. When they raise help cards, this means they ask for correction from the teacher. Each group will have green cards to help each other. If they need help from each other they raise green cards, if they need help from the teacher, they raise the orange card. Look at the handout (ex3a). T asks “what is the difference between question1 and 3? What is the difference between question2 and 4?” to students. Asks students to circle the different grammatic structures. T introduces her grammar flashcards to Ss and sticks them on the board. She divides the board into half and sticks “do” and “does” on each part. T gives the subject pronoun cards to each group and asks them to stick the correct flashcard under the correct form. Teacher elicits the present simple tense to ss. Why do we use this tense? T uses a timeline and gives examples from her life to clarify simple present tense and jobs. T draws a timeline on the board and say “I was a teacher 2 years ago. I am a teacher now. I’ll be a teacher next year. I am a teacher. I teach.”
T gives handouts to each student (3B ex a from pg:129). Ss complete the questions with do/does with their pairs. When they finish, they check their answers with their group members. If they need help while they are correcting their mistakes, they can raise the pink card for the teacher.
T introduces verb flashcards to ss. T gives them to each group. T sticks subject pronouns on the board and asks them to stick verb flashcards in the correct place on the board. T has vocabulary flashcards about jobs (teacher, taxi driver, actor, doctor, journalist, nurse, footballer, musician, a waiter, a waitress, a chef, a dentist, a lawyer, a model, a architect, a pilot, a bank manager, a factory worker, a soldier, a shop assistant, a cook, policewoman, singer). T gives each student one flashcard. Students don’t show their cards to each other. Students ask questions to each other to guess the job. Such as “do you work alone? Do you work with other people? Do you work with students? Do you work in a hospital? Do you work in an office? Do you work with computers? Do you work at the weekend? At the beginning of the activity T will show an example. When ss finish the activity, Ss will hold their flashcards in their hands, everyone can see each other’s jobs. T points a student (woman) and asks, “what is her job?” to another student. T writes “what is her job?” on the board and underlines “her”. Then T points a man (student) and asks, “what is his job” to a student. T writes “what is his job?” on the board and underlines “his”. T chooses students one by one and asks them to point a woman/man and ask a friend “what is her job?” or “what is his job?”
