No materials added to this plan yet.

Main Aims

  • To provide Ss with clarification and practice of "Wh-" questions and short answers in the context where we live.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To give Ss practice in speaking for accuracy and fluency.


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

Recap some of the points from the text in the previous lesson. Tell Ss they are going to deal with "Wh-" questions. Show a picture of yourself (stick it on the board) Tell Ss they should ask questions about the picture.( Wh questions/ whole class activty) Answer the questions of Ss in order to make them find the right answers.

Highlighting (4-7 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

I will hand out coloured Wh- question words which are cut as small papers and I will also hand out the rest of the questions on a separate sheet and want Ss to match them on their own and then check the answers with their partners. While Ss are doing the activity I will monitor and move around incase they need any help. After peer-checking I will make them tell me the answers ( whole class) as a feedback.

Clarification (8-11 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

I will write the question words on the board and elicit the meaning and form by drawing a table.Then I will write the pronunciations of the words under them and show Ss how they are pronounced. Model and drill the words and the sentences.

Controlled Practice (10-12 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

I will hand out scrambled words to the Ss and want Ss to put them in order to make sentences in pairs. After ordering words, they should check their answers with their partners. After the Ss check their answers in pairs, I will check them as a whole class for feed back. Then Ss ask and answer the questions they have ordered in pairs. I will be monitoring them throughout the stage and move around to be sure If they are doing the exercise and doing it correctly.

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

I will change one of the 'you' questions into a "he/she" question on the board. Ss work in pairs to change all of the questions from the previous task. Then I will drill a couple of questions. After that Ss interview a new patrner and ask him/her about the person they interviewed in the previous stage. I will ask Ss what they learned about each other as a general feedback. Throughout the stage I will be monitoring to check If they are really interviewing and doing it in the right way.
