Procedure

Pre-Listening (5-10 minutes) • To prepare the students for the listening practice as the main aim

Regarding the vocab review, exercise 1a, I will give the students cards of disorganized collocations and tell them to stick them together on the wall. I will match and stick one set of collocations together as a demo for the students. Finally, I will give my feedback. Regarding the wh past simple questions review, exercise 1b, I will elicit the right order of making a question by making some students stand up holding cards of the parts of the question and the other students order these parts. For a quick review, I might use my fingers to show the right order of the question form in the past simple tense. Then I show the students the past simple forms of the verbs on the screen. I will tell the students to write three sentences about what they did yesterday. Students will ask each other about what they did yesterday.

Lead-in to the listening practice (0-2 minutes) • To get the students' interest in the main topic about weekend activities

I will show two pictures of the employees, Emily. Tim, Rachel and Simon.I will ask students questions like, " Are they at work or at home?", "What did they do in the weekend?"

While-Reading/Listening #1 (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

In exercise 3a, I will tell the students to listen to the audio to match the names with the activities they did on their weekend.Students will listen for the first time. Then, they check the answers together in pairs. Students will listen again and write the answers from the answer key on the screen. In exercise 3b,I will divide the students into pairs and tell them to listen again to say whether the sentences in the exercise are true or false. I will write the numbers of the sentences on the board, each pair will come and write the answer for one question and so on.

While-Reading/Listening #2 (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

In exercise 4a, I will tell the students to listen to the audio and match the sentences with the responses. Students will listen to the audio for the first time. Students in pairs will check their answers. Students will listen again and finally, I provide them with the answer keys on the screen. I tell the students to listen again and drill the intonation of the responses. In exercise 4b, I will give the cards to the students with the responses, in pairs, they will stick the right response under the right category on the board. Then I provide the students with the answer keys on the screen.

Post-Reading/Listening (8-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

In exercise 8, I will put the collocations, questions and responses on the screen separately. the students will check the screen and speak about their weekend.
