Main Aims

  • To provide clarification & practice of grammar structure "used to" in the context in their books.

Subsidiary Aims

Warmer/Lead-in (5-10 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Show them some pictures about habits I used to have. ask about what they used to do as their habit.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

By demonstration the teacher shows students a girl's lifestyle and habits which have changed through time.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

use some sentences that I prepared before that the main structure is written in different colors to draw their attentions to the form then ask CCQs. CCQs are used for meaning, form , and pronunciation. In order to ask CCQ meaning I ask some questions like " is used to talking about past time? do we talk about habits that no longer we do?" In order to ask CCQ form I prepared some sentences with ill-formed parts. In order to ask CCQ pronunciation I will give them two pronunciation options and ask them to choose the correct one.

Controlled Practice (2-4 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

fill in the blanks activity but before that I ask ICQ. ICQs: what we are going to do? How much time do they have to complete the task?

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

ask them to talk about their bad habits they used to do then share them with the partner.
