Test #1 (5-7 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

Tell Ss that now they will read a short story and choose the correct word 'adjective' in bold. Tell Ss not to worry if they struggle with the meaning or form as they will work on it later in the lesson. Ss will do it individually and then peer-check their answers.

Ask them to justify their answers. Elicit other suggestions from other members. Show them the answer key. Tell Ss that now they will do an exercise to apply what they've done in HO3 on the following exercise 'HO4'. Ss will do the exercise in pairs. Have whole-class feedback and ask other Ss if they agree/disagree with their classmates' answers. Show Ss the answer key and teach the MFP and use the CCQs in the language analysis. Drill the pronunciation and focus on word stress and -ed ending sound variation.

Test #2 (5-7 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test
