Procedure

Highlighting (3-5 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

T writes sentences on the board and draws Ss attention to subject pronouns of those sentences. "This is Peter. He is fourteen. Kate is my sister. She is 17 years old. This is my umbrella. It is red."

Exposure (3-5 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

T wants Ss to scan the reading texts to find and circle the subject pronouns. Then Ss read some of the sentences with the subject pronouns.

Clarification (3-5 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

T writes down all of the subject pronouns on the board and writes example sentences next to the each pronoun. (examples for "he, she and it" are still written on the board")

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Ss complete the sentences with subject pronouns on section B. Ss read their answers one by one. If there is a wrong answer, T asks whole class for the correct answer. Then, Ss look at the pictures on section C and choose the correct word in italics for each picture. Again, Ss read their answers one by one and if there is a wrong answer, T asks whole class for the correct answer.

Exposure (3-5 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

Ss listen to the conversation between two people (audio file 1.3). Then they practice it with their pairs by reading.

Semi-Controlled Practice (13-15 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

Ss write new dialogues with the help of: 1. the conversation that they have listened and practiced 2. prompts for introducing self on page 2. Ss select a healthcare job, then they ask for and give personal information about themselves through the dialogues. Ss can ask T for help. When writing part is over, pairs will act out their dialogues.
