Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of comparatives and superlatives

Subsidiary Aims

  • To give sts practice in comparing two and more things in using the target language


Lead-in • To engage sts and set a context

-I will start the lesson by asking the sts this question; "What is a superhero?" -Then, I will ask the sts to describe a superhero with some adjectives. -When they will tell me the adjectives, I will write them on the board. However, while I am doing this, I will lead the students to the adjectives I want them to tell me such as rich, strong, helpful etc. The reason for this is that I will compare the three superheroes by using these adejctives.So, there will be all types of adjectives on the board. Hence, I can use them to show all the rules later.

Brainstorming and grammar • To give Ss clear information about the comparatives

-After that, I will focus on just two of the superheroes; Batman and Spiderman. I will put their pictures on the board. -Then, we will compare them by using the adjectives which we have written on the board. -After writing all the sentences on the board, I will show them how to change each adjective to make comparatives through these sentences.

Brainstorming and grammar • To give Ss clear information about the comparatives

-Now, I will show them the picture of the third superhero; Ironman and ask them "How can we compare these three superheroes now?" -When they remember superlatives, we will make sentences by using the same adjectives. -I will write the sentences on the board and show them the rules of the adjectives to make superlative sentences through these sentences again. -As a result, they will be able to understand how to use comparatives and superlatives.

Post-Grammar • To check the sts' understanding about the grammar

-After giving all the rules and making sure the sts understand the topic, I will give a handout to check if they really understand or not. -There are pictures of three means of transport (bike, car and plane) on the paper and some details are given about them such as their model, price, etc. -The sts will work in pairs to write 3 comparative 3 superlative sentences by using the information on the paper. -After they finish, we will discuss the sentences together.
