Comparatives and Superlatives for Homes
To provide clarification of comparatives and superlatives in the context of when speaking about homes
To provide clarification of adverbs which are used with comparatives
Procedure (32-41 minutes)
I will tell an anecdote about my wife's and my new apartment. I will use comparatives and superlatives to describe the differences between the old and the new. I will use the whiteboard to illustrate these points, as well.
They will work in groups as they fill in the empty boxes of the table I have created. By doing so, they will figure out the rules for the comparatives and superlatives.
They will look at three different postings for new places to live. They will decide which of the statements apply to each of the three posts.
Now, they will return to the 10 statements they have just worked on in order to answer questions about form.
At this stage, students will look at various photographs of homes and use the comparatives and superlatives to answer the CCQs. Finally, if time allows, they will be asked to write their own sentences comparing different places they have lived in before.
