No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of the present perfect tense in the context of job qualifications

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide practice of the present perfect tense


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will present the class with a picture of a doctor and a pilot, and ask them to discuss some qualifications that they would hope those people have when they interact with them in normal life. This will be done in an OCFB setting.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

I have written a brief passage employing the present perfect tense, and I will ask the students to read the passage in breakout rooms and answer questions about it. The first reading will be for gist, and it will only have one question. After this we will return from breakout rooms to discuss the answers with the class. Following that, we will have another reading that is more intensive, and the questions will be pertaining to the actual grammar structure of the passage. I will give them 4 minutes on the first reading, and 6 minutes on the second.

Useful Language (8-10 minutes) • To highlight and clarify useful language for coming productive tasks

For this stage, we will go over the present perfect tense utilized in a few example sentences. We will discuss phrasal emphasis, construction of the perfect present tense (have/has + past participle), and pronunciation. This will be done in OCFB format.

Productive Task(s) (18-20 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

For this stage, I have created a controlled practice and freer practice to give students the opportunity to practice their productive skills. Both practices are on a google slide, and I will send students to breakout rooms to discuss their answers.

Feedback and Error Correction (8-10 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language

After completing the lesson, we will have a brief stage of discussing any errors I noticed while observing the students' breakout rooms.
