Procedure (40-53 minutes)
As students learned some vocabulary in the previous lesson, the teacher just asks them a few questions and make them to talk about the importance of being a good neighbour. Do you get on well with your neighbours? Do you often visit them, or do they visit you? Could you go on holiday with your neighbours? Why (not)? They are going to talk about these questions in pairs. Then,the teacher gets some opinions from the students.
The teacher shows the quiz questions and asks the students choose the answers which they think as correct. The teacher gives them a handout to write their answers.
The teacher hand-outs the reading text and gives them 2 minutes to read the text quickly and find out their answers. As this is kind of quiz, the teacher doesn't ask the students to check in pairs. Then, the teacher uses the quiz PowerPoint to check the answers.
Before this activity, the teacher checks some unknown vocabulary. The teacher gives the questions to the learners and this time expects them to read in detail and find out the answers for the comprehension questions. Then the teacher tells them to check their answers in pairs. The teacher gives the answer key the first student who finishes answering the questions and tells them to check first their answers and then their friends answers
Teacher makes pairs of students. Then, she explains them the context : "You’re lucky, you own your flat and also the other flats in the same building, so you have some choice about who your neighbours are. This week there are two vacant flats, and you have six people or groups of people interested. So you have a choice, but in reality you need to decide quickly. One flat is the flat next to your baby’s room, the other is the flat above you. You must decide who to let to, and make your decision today. Here are the choices, you have to choose two, and agree". When the pairs have made their decisions, the teacher asks them to share their options in group and convince the others why their choice are true and should be accepted by giving reasons. While students are talking, the teacher monitors them and takes some notes to give delayed feedback.
The teacher makes pairs and tells the pairs that they are neighbours but they do not get on well eachother. The teacher gives them the role-play cards and asks them to solve the problem. If the pairs finishes early, teacher can change the problem cards with other pairs. While they are talking, the teacher monitors them and takes some notes to give them delayed feedback.
