  3. 3. INTRODUCTION (2nd TEACHING HOUR) The main purpose of this report is to provide the detailed lesson plan designed for the 4th grade students of the Private Primary School >. It is important to be mentioned that this lesson plan is referred to my second teaching hour. However, it is an attempt to present an evaluation of the use of the aforementioned lesson plan in EFL classroom. To begin with, I would like to mention that this lesson plan is an adaptation of authentic and semi-authentic material based particularly on the web-research. Specifically, this lesson was based on a text provided in famous course book Smileys (for Junior B). So, it was my personal choice to not use the class course book and bring different material to the young learners. Such a text was Easter Around the World pp. 52-53. In general, this text was presented and taught in a different way than it suggested in Smiley Teachers Book. So, my primary intention was to present something educative and different. When I was called to choose the theme of this particular lesson, I took into consideration the fact that this lesson will be taken place at the end of the school day (the last teaching hour). This was very important factor because the students would be tired. So, I would like to present them something educative and relaxing. Influenced by the Easter vacations that would come close to, I presented them the different Easter customs throughout the world. Through a number of speaking, listening and writing activities and educative games, I tried to combine the Greek Easter celebrations with the other cultures customs. In this way, I tried to increase their intercultural awareness. Thus, the basic criterion for the creation of the lessons plan activities was whether they were in position to be corresponded to the students level, arouse their interest and motivate them to participate actively throughout the lesson. To be more specific, I tried to create a creative teaching hour by using interesting texts, inspiring and at the same time educative activities. So, the purpose of this lesson plan was the presentation of knew knowledge through a series of creative and inspiring hand- made material. All these were an important change to the way of teaching English in the EFL classroom. In this way, the students become independent and creative learners. Taken into consideration all these, I would like to express my intention to make all the students to participate in this lesson. But the most challenging thing was to draw the attention of a class such as the 4th grade of Elementary School and to focus on their special needs. Of course, all these are extensively analyzed in the cover and the main body of this particular lesson plan in terms of objectives, description and teachers notes for each activity). The final part of this paper is based on the retrospective evaluation of the lesson plan. Particularly, in what extent this lesson plan was corresponded to the young learners needs and interests. Additionally, it is focused on the teachers reactions and feelings as well as the students feelings and comments at the end of the teaching hour. 3
