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

I will ask students two questions: what are urban legends? Do you know any? They are going to work for 3 minutes in BoR, then I'll procede to OCFB.

Exposure (7-8 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or audio

Teacher shows Ss three pictures, they come from 3 urban legends, Ss will listen to the track and will answer to 3 questions; 1 what did the sailor accidentally do to the kangaroo? 2 did the man escape punishment? 3 why was the building destroyed? they will check in groups for 2 minutes and teacher will conduct OCFB

Clarification (7-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

Teacher shows slides with 3 different sentences showing the target language, it will show the simple present, simple past and past participle of each each verb, teacher encourages learners to tell her the position of the phrasal verbs in a sentence and they will notice the stressed words or join words, teacher will conduct drilling to practice pronunciation

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Replace the words in red with the correct form of the phrasal verb. Students work individually for 3 minutes, then they will pair check in BoR for other 3 minutes and teacher conducts OCFB.

Free Practice (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Ss will see some words on a slide, the words won't have sense but will have to write a short urban legend using those words and more so it makes sense. They will have 5 minutes to write and 5 minutes to tell to their classmates, teacher procedes to OCFB
