Students will watch a short video of 1 minute ( exam session). In this video, students are taking the exam . After watching the video, I will ask them what this movie remind them of. Then , I will tell did you like your school days.
In this part, students match the subjects to the things they study. They do the task individually. When they finish doing activity, they will do peer check. Teacher monitors and take notes of the vocabulary they have difficulty with. Teacher hands out an answer key and give them some time to check their answers. Most of the words are known to students as they use the similiar form in Turkish. In case, they do not understand the meaning of the word, teacher explains. When they check their answer ( feedback) in pairs, teacher reads the word and ask students to repeat it ( choral drill) then nominate the students to repeat the word (individual repetition). Then, teacher asks students to find the stress on each word in pairs. Teacher gives a model. When they finish this task, teacher write the word on the board and elicit the answers from the students. If they can not put the stress correctly, she will pronounce the word and ask to find out the stressed syllable and marked the stressed syllable on the board.
There are four questions. Teacher asks students to work with their partner and answer the questions about different subjects in Turkey. Students use the vocabulary they have learnt about school subjects. Teacher monitors students when they are speaking. Teacher nominates the student and ask the question. Teacher writes students' errors on the board and ask them to correct those sentences.
