Ünal efe Assessed Teaching Practice 3
Grammar. Stative and dynamic verbs. In the context of demonstrations.
To practise semi-controlled speaking.
Procedure (25-45 minutes)
In this part, I project a picture on the board and ask them what is going on in this picture. E.g. "What are they doing?" , "What is she doing?", "Is the baby crying?" They answer the questions about the picture. After that, ask them if these are happening at the current time or not and elicit if there are actions in these sentences or not. CCQs:" Are these statement in the future or at present time?" "Do the verbs describe an action or not?" "Which tense is used here?"
When we are done with the visual, I will write some sentences on the white board and distribute the handouts to the students.I ask some CCQs about the sentences to make the meaning clear for students. CCQs; "Do the verbs describe an action or state?" " Which tense is used here?" After we emphasize that the dynamic verbs are used with the Present Continuous Tense, we move to the next part. I write three sentences on the board again and underline the verbs. I ask some CCQs again to make the meaning clear. CCQs; "Do the verbs describe an action or state?" " Which tense is used here?" After CCQs, I give a short explanation that we use stative verbs with Present Simple Tense. Later I draw students' attention to the sentences and ask which verb has two different meanings and describes both an action and a state. "I have three dogs" "I am having fun" "I have three children" "I am having lunch" "Which sentences describe actions?" "Which sentences describe states?"
In Part 2, Students look at the example and make sentences by using the given prompts in the Present Continuous Tense. The Students check the answers in pairs. ICQ;"Are you going to use two tenses?"
In exercise 6, they need to decide if the verbs are stative or dynamic.and put the verbs into appropriate forms to complete sentences. They work in pairs. But first , I give examples. "Phill wants a new car" , "Cindy is helping her mother in the kitchen" ICQ; "Are you going to use 2 tenses or 1 tense?" After that, we check the answers all together.
Before I set up this activity, I will demonstrate to them how to do it. The students can also look at the examples before we begin. I will ask some ICQs to be sure that they understand the activity. ICQs; "Are you going to use one tense or two tenses?" "Are you going to ask only one friend?" While they are doing the activity, I will observe them an take notes. Later, we can correct the mistakes.
