Procedure (35-43 minutes)
T greets Ss and the lesson starts. T shows Ss the jamboard and reads out the questions. T makes sure that Ss understand all the vocabulary. T says that Ss will go to Break Out Rooms and ask each other these questions for 3'-4'. T sends Ss to Break Out Rooms and monitors.
T says that Ss will now skim some short texts about some people and decide what job would be suitable for them. T shows the jamboard and gives Ss 1' to skim the texts. Ss share their opinions for 1' with the class. T then tells Ss that they will now answer some questions for each text. T shows the Google form and says that Ss have 5' for this task. When the time is up T shows the correct answers.
T proceeds to clarify the TL. T shows the presentation and the three extracts from the texts. T guides Ss to look at the underlined verbs and asks the CCQs form the presentation. T then shows Ss the timeline and explains it step by step (slide n.1). T then goes on to slide n.2 and elicits the form of the present perfect continuous and the difference between for and since. T shows slide n.3 where Ss are reminded the three forms of this tense and the expression 'how long' with which we ask questions in the present perfect continuous. T shows the two possible answers (for and since) and then shows Ss one extract form the texts. T asks Ss to transform this sentence using the present perfect continuous. T then goes to slide n.4 where Ss practise saying these sentences.
T tells Ss that they will have to fill in some gaps with personal information (no need to write down only the truth). T shows Ss the slides and sends the link for the presentation. Each Ss works on a different slide for 6'. Ss go to Break Out Rooms and T monitors and helps Ss when necessary.
T shows Ss the last slide in the presentation. Ss go to Break Out Rooms with their pair, look at their pair's slide from the CP and ask questions using the present perfect continuous for 5'. T monitors and notes down anything for DEC. When the time is up, T gives some content feedback and provides Ss with DEC. End of the lesson.
