To provide specific information reading practice using a text with questions in the context conversations between friends.
Procedure (36-48 minutes)
Jamboard with a question : "when was the last time you cancelled plans?" to set context on questions and warm the students for a creation of questions and the text.
Presentation of a text for students to see the target language for the first time in a context with a casual conversation between two friends. After reading the text, a gist task activity will be given to test students ability to remember what the text was about.
Google slides with sentences taken from the text to present the target language and clarify meaning, pronunciation, and form.
Controlled practice will be a selection of exercises for students to complete the sentences to form tag questions in different verb tenses and using different auxiliaries. After the learners complete the exercise, students will compare answers and I will conduct open class feedback on the exercises.
A jamboard will be presented with a guessing game for students to do it in pairs practicing the target language, trying to make assumptions about their peers: "Paula, you like chocolate, don't you ?" the other students replies the assumption with the truth and another tag question. : " I like chocolate, but you don't drink milk, do you?"
I will conduct open class feedback on the lesson, coment on the freer practice and answer any question that might arise about tag questions.
