  • To provide clarification and practice of passive voices of six tenses in the context of taking a break

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide gist reading practice using a text about extraordinary hotels in the context of taking a break
  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a freer activity of presentation in the context of extraordinary hotels


Lead-in / Reading (3-5 minutes) • To provide the students with less challenging gist to familarize them with both the context and target language

T shows the questions on the board and asks SS to skim the text quickly and answer the questions with their pairs. T monitors but not too closely and gets w/c feedback.

Test #1 (5-7 minutes) • to identify ss' background knowledge of the target language

T shows HO and asks SS to look at the first part. SS will work individually and match active sentences 1-6 with their passive versions a-f in the texts they've read. T monitors closely during the activity and gives AK afterwards. No error correction can be done at this point.

Teach - Guided Discovery (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language in which the students had difficulties

T asks SS to work with their partner and shows HOs that they will be completing T gives HOs that includes meaning clarification for the first folded part, gets feedback from pairs upon completion. Error correction is a must on this stage. T asks SS to work together again, SS unfold the HOs that includes clarification of the form T gives the AK upon completion, SS check their answers.

Test #2 (10-12 minutes) • To check the use of target language in comparison to the first test stage

T gives gapfill and match HO and asks the ss to work individually. T monitors and choose a S as an answer key or posts the AK on the board. T shows another HO to ss and asks them to work on their own and complete the paragraph with the correct passive form of the verbs. T gives SS the HOs and monitors while they are on the task T gets W/C feedback upon completion. Correct errors if needed.

Free Practice (9-11 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language
