Teaching Practice 5
To enable the students master the use of ''How much / many ...?''
To provide listening and speaking practice
Procedure (21-45 minutes)
Teacher greets the class and carries a very short interaction. He will try to remember some names then attracts the attention of the students to lead in.
The teacher asks the students about the things that they have at their flats. He states some of the words on the board and uses them to introduce the concept of countable and uncountable.
The teacher will use the written words on the board and ask the students to do ex 4 to guess the rule of using 'How much/many..?' After that, the teachers asks the students to do ex 5 to practise the rule. They will do it individually then check their answers in pairs. He will name them (how much and how many) for sense of humour and concentration. Everyone will just ask to answer the questions that carry his/her name (how much/many). Teacher takes some answers as short feedback. Students will practise asking the questions to each other.
In this stage students will look at the advert and express their opinions to their partners. The teacher will let them speak if they begin to ask the question 'how many ................ are there?'. Then the teacher asks them to listen and put the answers in order (b), the teacher checks the answers for feedback and let the students listen again to do ex 7 if the time factor doesn't disturb. Students will do the task individually then compare their answers with their partners.
Students' work will be appreciated, then the teacher asks the students what do they remember from yesterday's class about 'some', 'any' and 'a'. After that, the teacher asks the students to do ex 8 and check their answers in pairs. He receives some answers as a feedback. He writes them on the board using students' examples to explain how they are used in/with positive, negative and the question forms. He will focus on the use of 'any' and 'a' if students show confusion in how to use them in the negative forms.
Students will be asked to give sentences using 'How much/many..? And 'any/a'. Students will be called by their new given names (how much/many) for the sake of their (how much/many) use enrichment. Everyone will be motivated to interact especially the weak ones. Oral immediate error correction will take place for the wrong spoken errors. After students participation (speaking) the teacher thanks the students for their effort and recaps the lesson
