I will tell the students a story about the changes that have happened to my friend’s life since he was a teenager and the tremendous transformation that has happened to him.
I am going to provide a reading context for the students. And they going to do a jigsaw reading where they can relate stories about life changes and link them together.
After discussing the story with them and checking their answers with their peers, I will get the students to notice and underline their answers and ask them about what they have noticed in these sentences.
After eliciting the meaning and the form from their answers I will clarify the target language by writing one of the answers on the board and underlining it.
checking concept questions for the meaning and function of present perfect and asking them to try to find another sentences of the target language from the context and find similar changes with their peers ; and for the pronunciation, I am going to do back chain drilling.
each others in pairs if they know anyone who has changed completely and find the similar changes.
