Procedure (32-43 minutes)
T shares screen and shows Ss the photo on the Google Slides. T tells Ss: "Look at this picture and think about this question: What is the meaning of this picture? Take 30 seconds to think about this now." Afterwards, T tells Ss: "Now you will go into breakout rooms to discuss this with your partner. You have 2 minutes" T sends Ss to breakout rooms and then monitors them. After 2 minutes, Ss return to the main room and T picks on students to share.
T shares screen to the Google Slides of the reading text. T tells Ss: "Read the first two sentences. Take a couple seconds to do that now." T waits for a couple of seconds. T: "Look at the underlined phrase, what does this phrase tell us about time? What is it's purpose?" Ss answer. T: "These phrases are called quantifiers. There are three more in the text, find them and underline them. You have 2 minutes" After 2 minutes, T elicits Ss responses: "(Student name) what other quantifiers did you find?" T continues until all quantifiers are mentioned.
T shares screen to the Google Slides and tells Ss: "In this activity, you have a scale of quantity from 'none' to 'all.' Put each quantifier on the appropriate triangle. Use the eggs as a guide. Afterwards, answer the question at the bottom. When you decide on your answer, delete the other answers" T models throughout instruction. "You will work on this with a partner in breakout rooms. You have 4 minutes" T sends Ss the Google Slides. T sends Ss to breakout rooms and monitors. After 4 minutes, Ss return to the main room and T elicit Ss answers: "(Student) what did you get for the first triangle?" As each answer is revealed, refer back to the marker sentences and ask the appropriate CCQs (e.g. "Is there a lot of time to do everything we want? (no)" ) Continue this process until the graphic organizer is complete. T then moves onto form by asking Ss: "What type of word follows quantifiers? Are these nouns countable or uncountable? Are quantifiers adjectives or verbs?" T then moves onto pronunciation by sharing the screen to the Google Slides. T tells Ss: "I'm going to say these sentences twice, just listen" T models. T: "Now repeat after me." Ss repeat after T and T picks on a few students to say the sentences. T elicit Ss responses to questions about pronunciation. T: "Where is the stress in the sentence? What do you notice about the intonation? Why does it rise?" Continue until all 4 sentences are covered.
T shares screen to the Google Form. T tells Ss: "Choose the correct quantifier for each sentence. The information in parentheses tell you which one to use" T models using the first problem. T: "You have 3 minutes to do this" T sends Ss the Google Form. After 3 minutes, T elicits Ss responses: "What did you get for #2?" T continues until all questions are answered.
T shares screen to Google Slides and tells Ss: "For this last activity, you will go into breakout rooms and discuss this question: What are your dreams and goals? First take a couple seconds to think about your answer." T shows the second slide. T: "Here are some ideas you can use. Here are the phrases that you should use." T models an answer and then gives Ss time to write notes. T: "You have 4 minutes to discuss this in breakout rooms" T sends Ss to breakout rooms and monitors. After 4 minutes, Ss return to the main room to share their responses. T follows up with DEC.
