Procedure (35-47 minutes)
-T starts a situational warmer,by telling a short story in the context of places and city features -T starts the story by a statement,then switches to sort of a gap-filling pattern,where Ss participate in the lead-in. -By doing that,T gets Ss interested in the topic,and stimulates their schemata.
-T shows a text (story) that includes the target language to Ss and asks them to read it. -After reading,T uses CCQs to check for gist understanding from the students. -T makes breakout rooms where Ss will choose from a set of pictures the one that's described by the story.
-T shows the text again -T shifts the attention towards the general gist of the story (city features) -Ss,by guided discovery,find the target language in the text.
-T shows Ss pictures relevant to the target language -T elicits meaning/general definition from Ss -T uses CCQs to confirm proper understanding -Ss work on written and spoken form with T,with emphasis on stress.
T splits Ss into breakout rooms -Activity 1:Ss match pictures of places in the city with their respective activities/details -Activity 2:Ss fill the blanks of a charade like story,with items from the target language.
-T does a brief scaffolding,reminding Ss again of the target vocabulary,and some sentences or structures they can use in the coming task. -T splits Ss into breakout rooms,and asks them to talk to each other,describing their neighborhoods,using the target language. -After returning from the breakout rooms,T does a feedback session on content & language with the students
