Procedure (30-43 minutes)
The picture of a man who likes caving will be put on the board and five words related to the reading passage will be put around the picture. SS are expected to make up a story using the words. After the story -speaking activity, pre-reading questions will be asked. (How would life be without Tv-electricİty-phone? Tell them to think of some famous inventors , their inventions and talk about them)
After the pre-reading activity, SS will be put in to groups of three and each member of the group will read a story of a different inventor. Different colours will be used for each story so there won't be any confusion about who will read which one. After the interpersonal reading activity, students in each group who has no idea about what and which invention or inventor he/she has read about, will ask the questions in their envelopes. Each member will ask atleast two questions from the envelope. ICQ's will be asked. Is this a group work? Will you be a group of four?
This time scanning will be done .I will ask the meaning of a verb and tell them to highlight or underline the verbs. I will write two sentence on the board and tell them to find them in the reading passage. I will elicit the present passive rules from students and show the rules from the ppt if needed. While showing the rules , I will get the SS to find the difference with an active and passive sentence.
Clarification will be done if needed.
Give each student a card with either the passive form or the active form of the sentence. The passive form card will be red colour and the active form will be blue. They will find the related sentences when I tell them to mingle. Once they find the active and the passive form, they will stick the cards on the paper which I hang on the board.
SS will write about an invention they have created using present passive as much as they can.
