Upper Intermediate level
To provide review of present perfect simple and contrast it with present perfect continuous in the context of actions done in the past
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation where they use the perfect tenses reviewed in the context of unusual achievements
Procedure (34-45 minutes)
In Break-out rooms, have students ask and answer the following questions: Have you recently stayed up late at night doing something? What was it? Have you ever (at any time) lost money? What happened? What did you do?
I will do the presentation through the text using Practice 2 on page 59 as the text where Ss will get the TL from, and the link is the next one: https://forms.gle/kG1hfD7KAgGF3b679. In the form, they must provide a title for the conversation and answer two simple questions as a Gist task (I elicit the instructions). They listen and answer by selecting the following question. After that, they compare answers in pairs (zoom chat) and OCFB.
I share the next form to do the following intensive reading task to get marker sentences: https://forms.gle/aM9TdgqVgqd5WtBa8 Ss work in pairs on the exercise, and then we do an OCFB
I start providing MFPA by sharing the slides prepared on presentation, and asking help: ___ What do you think, in the timeline, the first sentence means? How do we draw it? (if the student shows hesitation, I open the forum to get help for the student (I draw using the zoom platform)). I still ask to other students: Has Mariana stopped crying? (no) When did Mariana started crying? (unkwon), Is Mariana crying now? (yes), When did Jane left ten messages? (unknown), Has Jane been able to speak with Andrew? No I then tell the meaning provided on the slide, I review and ask: What form do you notice (after students answer, I show the slide), correlating to form and pronunciation (stress and connected speech). I then introduce controlled practice
I share the following form (which adapts from practice 1 of our coursebook)to provide controlled practice of the language: https://forms.gle/wvWXC9Dy4TV8fK9V7. Students do this individually. I also ask students to choose three of those sentences and create a question from those? I show the examples on the slide
Students check in pairs (via private messages on the chat box) the previous activity and then do an OCFB
I ask students to ask and answers the questions done by their peers in breakout rooms (several rounds)
Based on what I see during the free practice activity, and answers that I elicit (which I write on the WB), I provide the error correction.
