Warm up / Lead in (2-3 minutes) • To set the lesson context,engage students and make them interested in

As the lesson is focused on articles and determiners, I'll start the lesson with some questions like:"Do you have a pen?, What color is the pen? Are there any pencils?...etc. This will take their attention to the lesson and focus on what I mention to do at the beginning of a lesson.

Test their knowledge (8-10 minutes) • To find out what they already know

I will give them a handout and they will work individually so that I'm planning to test their knowledge on articles and determiners. There will be an activity which is a multiple-choise activity.

Check the answers (6-8 minutes) • To check the answers and elicit the mistakes

When they finish working on the handout, I will make two lines of students in the lesson. The students will be face to face in pairs to check their answers and discuss about their answers. Then I'll get the answers from whole class and write on the board.

Teach / Report (8-10 minutes) • To focus on their mistakes and enable a clear knowledge

Now I have an idea of what they can remember and what they can do with the language. I'll focus on some of their mistakes and explain. To make them focus on functions of TL I'll ask them to go through the second activity which includes definitions of the usage of articles & determiners. We will check the answers as a whole class.

Practice (6-8 minutes) • To allow students produce TL

ı will set the students in pairs. I'll give them another handout that includes a frame for conversation. First, I'll demonstrate with a picture of a lion, then the students 1 and 2 will continue by the pictures that I will show.

Final Test (4-6 minutes) • To make students use TL correctly

I will ask the students to go through activity 4 because this will be their final testing. When they finish, I will give them an answer key.
