Warmer/Lead-in (3-4 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will ask my Ss to think about the following question: What was the latest movie or series you saw?

Exposure (3-5 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

I will ask my Ss to listen to the text and tell me what it is about. Who is talking? What is the topic of the conversation? This will be done in order to identify the context in which the target language is happening.

Highlighting (3-5 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

I will ask Ss to underline all examples of the TL in the audio by providing them with a cloze-text task.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

MEANING I will request Ss to fill out a quiz on FORMS to identify Meaning. Followed by some CCQs: 1 Could it be a true story?, 2 Is the movie Sharknado believable?, 3 Did it win an Oscar?, 4) Did I know how it was going to end?, 5) Did I cry?, 6) Did I feel nostalgia, 7) Did I get bored?, 8) Will I forget the movie?. 9) Was it famous because it was important?, 10) Can a movie you like be underrated?, 11) Can it be a real story? 12) Is Anabelle a scary movie? 13) Is Sharknado weird?, 14) hilarious movies will make you laugh? FORM With form I will ask the students what type of words these are. I will also ask them about the structure: _________+ subject. PRON I will say the words out loud and will ask Ss to identify the stress in the words. I will ask Ss to drill.

Controlled Practice (6-9 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

I will instruct the Ss to complete a crossword with the TL. They will do this by completing a FORMS activity online. First, will ask Ss to work alone Then, we will check answers in BORs where they will compare their work. Finally, I will bring them back to the main session where we will check mispelled words and correct answers.

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

I will ask Ss to work on the following task: -Write the name of one film, play or TV drama for 10 adjectives. Don't write the adjectives. To begin the task I will ask Ss to work by themselves for two minutes. After that, I will make groups and Ss will take turns sharing work and have the other person guess which adjective fits the name of a film, play or TV drama they have written.
