Procedure (41-45 minutes)
The class is on a virtual setting through a zoom session. Students will be asked at the start of the lesson, if they are an indoors or outdoors person. This to engage them into making suggestions about a plan with friends. They will individually share with the class.
Ss will be asked to individually read a conversation about friends making plans for a weekend (making suggestions, asking if the person is free, politely refusing a suggestion, saying you have no preference). Afterwards, they will identify the meaning of the statements to make and respond to suggestions by identifying a sentence that falls into each category. Then, they will identify which sentences fall into a question or statement category, with the idea for them to identify which part of the target language. (Question: asking if the person is free, making a suggestion; statement: politely refusing a suggestion, saying you have no preference). and finally intonation for those examples. Some sentences have intentional mistakes in them, students will be asked to correct them to ensure their knowledge of form.
Students will be asked to generate their own phrases on making and responding to suggestions. They will write them in the jamboard and then share them with the whole class. At this point they are still working individually.
Students will be asked to work in teams to create their own conversation about making plans and include suggestions (making and responding to). They will be given time to work it once, share with the class and either finish the first conversation (depending on how far they went) or make a new one.
Feedback will be given based on the observation done during the productive tasks.
