To provide clarification of adjectives ending in -ing/-ed in the context of media
To provide fluency speaking practice
Procedure (35-45 minutes)
Show the ss pictures of two news men and ask questions about news they could be reading in order to generate interest in the theme of media and elicit some vocabulary. 'Who is she?' 'What news she might read?' 'What news he might read?'
Ss listen to a text and match the statements displayed with who said each one. Ss check their answers in pairs and are provided with the answer key afterwards.
Ss are asked to discuss in groups the difference between using ed/ing adjectives. The use of each is then elicited from them. Ss write down the difference as shown either on the whiteboard or WSB.
Ss are explained the instructions and handed out a personalised productive task where they are asked to form adjectives of the words provided. Ss check their answers in pairs and teacher feedback is provided.
This speaking activity will be in the form of a 'Tell us about' game. T first performs a demo and then ss are handed mini flashcards on which written topics they need to build on and elaborate. when possible, ss will be prompted and asked questions to get them to talk more. After a few rounds, ss choose the cards themselves and reminded to use adjectives ending in -ed/-ing from a list of verbs displayed for all. Meanwhile, T takes notes of any language that needs to be mentioned when giving content feedback.
T writes on the board examples of mistakes and gets ss to suggest ways of improving them, and also examples of language worth praising.
