Teaching Practice 4
To provide clarification and practice of question forms in the Present Perfect Tense in the context of music
To provide specific information and gist listening practice using a text about musical experiences in the context of music
Procedure (45 minutes)
The ss will be asked what kind of music they like and will have a small chat about why they like that kind of music, who are their favourite singers or bands etc. with their pairs.
T will stick two pictures on the WB and ask the ss ''Who are those people?''. They will tell some names and finally T will introduce the characters by writing their names under the pictures: Julie and Scott.
Ss will be told that they will listen a dialogue between Julie and Scott. They will be given a handout to fill in the blanks by using the characters' names while listening.T give the answer key sheet to ss.
Ss will listen the dialogue again but this time they will focus on the grammatical structure of the text. After they finish, ss will tell the answer out loud and T will correct the errors.
T will write a model sentence on the board : ' Have you ever been to a rock festival ? '. Also she will draw two timelines showing finished and unfinished action. By pointing the timelines she will ask to ss if the sentence refers to a finished or an unfinished action. This will be followed by CCQs such as : Am I asking about the future ? (No) Am I asking an experience in your life ? (Yes) Then as a guided discovery , they will be given a handout including the rules of the Past Simple and the Present Perfect. They will fill in the blanks with the appropriate tense and the answers will be checked quickly.
T will write the sentence formation on WB by eliciting from ss. Have / has + Subject + ever + past participle (V3) .... ? Then T will draw a chart and stick some words out of the chart on the WB. Ss will come and stick the words on the appropriate gap.
T will drill the sentence chorally and individually on the board by break it into parts : - a rock concert - been to a rock concert - Have you ever been to a rock concert ?
Ss will be given a 'Find someone who ...' activity. Before starting T will have a little demo to show the class how they play the game.Then everybody will stand up and start asking questions each other. If teacher hears a mistake from one of the ss she will correct it.
Ss will be given a list including the phrases to be adjusted into 'Have you ever ... ?' questions. In pairs, they will make questions and answer them. While monitoring them, T will take notes and correct the errors.
