TP3 - Khadija El Mahrsi
By the end of this lesson, students will have learned how to form the passive voice and use it
To practice the use of the passive voice for reporting (in writing)
Procedure (32-35 minutes)
In pairs, have students discuss the newspapers/magazines they read and why they read them.
Elicit vocabulary that the students might need in order to understand the text: Burglar: Thief, robber. To threaten: with a gun. Soft toys: show an example of a soft toy. To blame: give example (someone does something and you say "it's your fault that...").
Students need to match stories to headlines. They are given handouts containing the articles and the headlines they agree on are put on the articles in the handmade newspapers.
Have students identify the passive voice through examples then give them the form. Explain the different uses of the passive voice.
In pairs, students read the fourth article and select the correct alternative. They all have the article on their handouts, and the correct alternatives they agree on are circled on the article of the handmade newspapers.
In groups, students need to write a story for a blank article (there are 3 different blank articles in total). The suggested points to write are: main story, characters, ending, and where the story takes place. T selects a few mistakes (during monitoring) and corrects them with the whole class.
Ask the students about what they liked or didn't like in the lesson and give them the lesson handouts.
