Procedure (45-60 minutes)
Teacher shows the picture of a fridge and tells what food there is in this fridge. She asks students "What food do you have in your fridge?" and nominates a few students to answer this question.
The teacher shows some pictures to the students to elicit some vocabulary they need to know to understand the listening text. These words are "kid, vegetables, fruit, beer, unhealthy, and eat in".e.g. The teacher says 1. "Who is he?(Child), Do you know another word for child?(Kid)". 2. "What do people generally drink when they go to bars?". After eliciting the words, the teacher asks some CCQs for each of them. 1. "Is a kid old or young?" (young), 2. "Does beer have alcohol in it?", "Can you drink it at school?"...etc. The teacher drills and writes the words on the board.
A picture is shown to the students about the listening text, and two questions are asked to the students by the teacher; 1."Who is the fussy eater?", 2."Where do they go to eat?". Students are asked to listen to the recording once and find the answers of those questions on their own. Two ICQs are asked to the students; 1."Do you work alone or with your partners?", 2."Do you listen to the recording once or twice?" and the handouts are given to the students for gist listening. After students listen and answer the questions, they are paired up and asked to compare their answers with a partner. Finally, the answers are given in a W/C format.
The teacher asks the students to unfold the handout and read the T/F sentences. Then, she asks them to work alone and listen to the recording to find if the sentences are true or false. After they listen to the recording, the students are paired up again and asked to check their answers with their partners. They can find the answer key under their chairs.
Another handout which has gap filling sentences is shown to the students. They are instructed to listen to the recording again to complete the sentences individually with one word they hear. The teacher gives the handouts, and plays the recording. The students fill in the gaps while listening. Then, they check their answers with their partners. To give feedback, the teacher asks the students to write the sentences on the board.
Teacher has some handouts in her hand and asks the students to read the sentences and answer the questions on the handout in pairs. She asks "Are you working alone or in pairs?" and gives the handouts to the students. When they finish the activity, teacher asks them to unfold the handout and complete the Function/ Use part with their partners again. After the Function / Use part, teacher asks the students to unfold the paper again and complete the last part related to Form in pairs. Teacher monitors the students during all these stages. When they finish all activities, teacher asks them to compare their answers in a different group and gives the answer key as feedback.
(If students make mistakes in guided discovery.) After the previous exercise, the students will be checked for meaning in a WC format. Teacher asks some CCQs; 1. Do we use some with singular or plural nouns? 2. Do we use some in positive or negative sentences? 3. Do we use any with plural nouns? 4. Do we use any with uncountable nouns? 5. Do we use any in negative sentences and questions? Next, the form of the structure will be emphasized by the teacher and this will be followed by repetition drills. If students have difficulty in drilling, back-chaining will be used by the teacher.
Teacher has some handouts in her hand and says "There are some sentences on this page. Complete the sentences with the correct words on your own." Teacher does the first one as an example and gives the handouts to the students. While the students are doing the exercises, teacher monitors them. When they finish the exercise, teacher asks them to compare their answers in pairs. Then, teacher does some error correction if needed.
Teacher asks the students to talk about what food they have / don't have in their fridges in pairs. Techer monitors them and takes notes about their mistakes. She gives delayed feedback if needed.
