Hi everyone, anyone doing online TEFL please help!!!

Can somebody please help me I am on the Checkpoint 2 part of my TEFL, I have already submitted 2 lesson plans which were incorrect and if I fail the next one I could fail my course. I am failing to see what I am doing wrong. Can anyone help with the following:

1. Teaching the Language Assessment Video- Example Lesson (its online)
What grammatical structure is being taught?
How does the teacher make the meaning (i.e. function, concept) of the structure clear?
How does the teacher check student understanding?
How do the students practise the structure?

How would you teach the form ‘(be) going to + infinitive’ used for future plans to a pre-intermediate class?

Outline your lesson plan using the following headings as a guideline.

Warmer / Lead in
Presentation (in a suitable context) and drilling
Controlled practice activity
Production (a personalised communicative activity)

Briefly say what you would do for each stage of the lesson (in bullet point). Each of the four stages above may contain more than one activity.

Remember to include examples of the sentences you will present and your students will practise. The sentences should follow this pattern: Subject + 'am/ is /are going to + verb' and they should express future plans.

If anyone can give me some advice or even past examples that were successful before would be great,

"TEFL" is a generic name that obviously refers to all TEFL courses. I meant which company are you taking your TEFL course with?
