Hi, I am currently trying doing my lesson plan submission for ITTT and need some help going over it and what can be fixed before I submit it. Would anyone be willing to go over it and give me some advice on where I can improve? If anyone can, thank you so much and greatly appreciated!
For this class, I am supposed to be teaching pre-intermediate class of adults on the simple continuous form. I need to go into as much detail as possible for each stage to describe what is expected to be happening at that time of teaching.
Class Level: Pre-Intermediate
Class size: 10
Language Points: Present continuous tense describes (or implies) an action that is in progress at the time of speaking.
Teaching Aids: The board, markers, worksheets, pictures or drawings, paper, hat.
Learner Objective: Have the students understand the proper usage of present continuous tense, like how it is formed (auxiliary verb ‘be’ + verb+ing) and what situations it is used in.
Personal Aims: Ensure the students know when to use this tense, encourage everyone to participate, and to keep the classroom environment friendly and interesting.
Anticipated Problems for Students: The students may not understand or recall the correct structure.
The students may also be bored and uninterested.
Solutions: Give good examples of present continuous tense by incorporating physical examples, such as pictures and asking questions (the teacher could ask what a character is doing at the current time of speaking).
Anticipated Problems for Teacher: Talking to much and taking away from student talk time.
Solutions: The teacher can use gestures, mime, and pictures, and avoid over-elaborating. Ensure all students participate, ask many questions during the class, pair students up, and ask them to write on the board.
Start the class with getting the students talking and thinking with the present continuous tense by placing drawings and images up on the board. The students will then state what is currently happening in each picture.
Elicit sentences from the students by miming out actions. Place pieces of paper inside of a hat and have the students come up one at a time to pick one out of the hat. The student will mime out the action and have the other students guess what they are doing. For example, “you are swimming” or “I am walking a dog”. After a student has correctly guessed what is happening, write the answer on the board.
Use the example sentences that were written on the board. The teacher will start asking the students open ended questions (ex, “Can you give an example of how this can be used in a sentence?” or “How can this be used in a question?”) If the student puts the word into a sentence, the teacher can ask another student to answer the question.
Pair up the students for a gap-fill exercise worksheet to practice their knowledge on the present continuous form. The paired students will have to work together to find the correct auxiliary verb ‘to be’ (is, am, are) and the ‘verb+ing’ of the sentences or questions given. Pictures will be given alongside the sentences to provide added detail to the words needed. (Ex, “The dog — ——- his food.” or “– she ——– the floor at the moment?)
After the gap-fill exercise, discuss and write the answers on the board and provide feedback when needed.
Divide the students up into pairs. Using the words and sentences elicited from the students earlier in the lesson, each pair will be given a scene that they will have to create their own dialogue for using the present continuous tense. The students can make the scene as silly or serious as they want. Provide students with the information they may need to write the short dialogue like destinations (park, bar, school).
For example ‘two people meet in the park’:
Student A: What are you doing here at the park?
Student B: I am crying and eating. What are you doing?
Student A: Wait, why are you crying?
The student pairs each take a turn in presenting their dialogue to the class.
