Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

1-Display the students the reading text with its related pictures. 2- introduce the characters in the film then point to the three characters and ask students some question: -Does Sam loves her(pointing to Molly)? -Does Molly love him (pointing to Samy)? -Does Sam love her? (Pointing to Otta)? 3- Ask the students to read and do exercise 1b. 4- Model one answer with the students then get the students in breakout rooms to answer the rest. 5-Display the answer key for the students to check their answers.

Clarification (7-9 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

-Take a couple of sentences from the text. For ex, she can't see him and he use her. -Write them on the white board. -ask students some CCQs about the above mentioned sentences to illicit the form. i.e. ask the students the following questions: 1- Is (he\she) a subject or a verb? 2- Is (he\she) a noun or a pronoun? 3- Is (him\her) a noun or a pronoun? 4-Does (him \her) come before or after the verb? -highlight that him and her are reduced in pronunciation when they are in a sentence.
