Instructional Design Mini ID Project
To provide clarification of -ed and -ing adjectives in the context of Reading text "Scandal"
To provide clarification and practice of a web-tool used for designing quizzes for various areas of content
To practice scanning through a reading text and multiple choice questions via a web-tool.
Procedure (71-90 minutes)
Lead-in: Teacher will tell a short story about a famous couple (Kirsten Stewart and Robert Pattinson) and elicit the word "scandal". Warmer: Students will be shown a youtube video which is a trailer of the movie "Scandal". Students are asked some follow-up questions such as; "What is the movie about?", "Why do you think this is 'a scandal'?
Students will be given a reading text named "Scandal". Students will be informed that they will take an online quiz through "Kahoot" and they will be using their mobile phones and their cellular data. While Ss are reading the text, T will show the url of "Kahoot" on the board.By the help of the projector, T will login to the website and launch the quiz which was prepared before. When Ss finish reading they'll be asked to go to this url adress and enter the quiz number which they can see reflected on the board. Ss will create a nickname and join the quiz. Ss will answer the questions reflected on the board and answer them using their mobile phones in the allocated time for each question. Ss will be informed about the fact that the earlier they answer, the higher scores they will get. Ss will get feedback after each answer they submit. (The right answer will appear when the allocated time finishes for each question.)
Ss will be asked to go back to the text and underline all the adjectives they can see.
T writes an example sentence "A scandal is amusing for many people, because they feel amused by the things that happen to famous people" on the board. T will elicit the difference between "amused" and "amusing". After getting answers, T will clarify that the -ed adjectives are used to describe how we feel; however, -ing adjectives are used to describe what something is like.
Ss will be asked to go back to the reading text and choose the correct form of adjectives written in bold. Ss will pair-check and T conducts a whole-class feedback.
Ss will be given an adjectives list which includes 10 adjectives for each group. They'll be asked to prepare their own Kahoot quizzes in two groups. They are expected to prepare a "gap-filling" exercise and the answers of the exercise will have two options: either -ed or -ing form of the adjective. T will guide each group by showing how to sign-up for the web-site by the help of the computer and the projector. Each group will create an account on the web-site and write a title for their quizzes. They will write their questions and answers and choose a time-limit for each question. After writing all the questions, they'll save their quizzes and set their audience, difficulty level and privacy level. In turns, a member from each group will use the class computer and conduct their own quiz on the other group. The group which has the highest score wins.
T will take notes of the problematic questions or answers through the Free Practice and write them on the board. T will ask the students to discuss and correct these mistakes in pairs. T conducts a whole-class feedback
