TBL - Simple Present
By the end of the lesson, sts will have been practiced simple present (positive & negative) in the context of "things I love in Britain."
By the end of the lesson, sts will have been practiced reading skills.
Procedure (18-34 minutes)
The lesson is about Britain, so I'll srart the session by asking sts about Egypt to get them to speak up by asking simple Qs such as: What things do you like/don’t like about Egypt? After that, I'll present some pictures of Britain and ask them what is it and what they know about it/its people.
1- I'll clarify the meaning of the word "pub" using the MPF method as it will be mentioned in the text. 2- I'll introduce a new task, which is "true or false". Sts will be given 4 sentences about British people and they have to guess if they are true or not. The sentences are: a- British people drink tea at 5.00. b- It rains a lot in Britain. c- British people like animals. d- The food in Britain isn’t very good. 3- Sts are going to read the text to check their answers. CCQ: Are you going to read quickly or carefully? How much time do you have to read the text?
I will try to elicit the tense from the sts. Qs: Which tense is used in the text? (present) - How do we know it's the present? (from the verbs) I will then ask them to underline the verbs in the present tense.
I will use 2 marker sentences to clarify the meaning, pronunciation and form of the simple present using timelines. Sentence 1: I drink tea every morning. CCQs: Is it something I do everyday? Is it a habit? Sentence 2: The plane leaves at 4:00 on Friday. CCQs: Does this happen at the same time every Friday? Is it a timetable? I will then highlight the form (+ & -), then the pronunciation (ex. final s)
Controlled practice: "Looking for a flatmate" you are looking for a flatmate, you're going to interview two friends to decide who will be your flatmate. Freer-practice: Sts will try to find classmates with whom they have things in common, both + and - Instructions: You're going to find out what you and your classmates have in common. Think of some facts about yourself, such as things you like/don't like or can/can't do.
Feedback is given according to sts' performance throughout the lesson.
