Procedure (31-45 minutes)
Ss think of five items that are common today, but which didn't exist or were uncommon 20 years ago.
Ss get cutouts of lexical items and their definitions. Ss work in groups to match the items with the definitions. Ss are then perform group check and find out what the other group have done.
-T directs the ss attention to the first sentence in EX.2: -What is the grammar name for 'which'? Relative pronoun -Can you tell me other examples of relative pronouns? who/that/whose/where - SS are asked to underline the relative pronouns in Ex.2 individually then check in pairs. T provides an answer key. - Ss are directed to the grammar box where they try to discover the use of TL on their own
-T asks ss to choose a sentence with a relative pronoun from Ex. 2. -T highlights the use of relative pronouns and that they occur in a relative clause. -T elicits that relative pronouns add information to (refer to/ describe) places, people, and things. - T highlights 2 sentences that point out when relative pronouns must be used or can be omitted. ( no 4-7) - T highlights, models, and drills the pronunciation.
-Ss do Ex. 1a P. 88 - They work individually then check in pairs. -T provids an answer key.
- Ss do Ex. 3 P. 88. - ss are divided into 2 groups. -SS take turns testing each others groups.
-T divides class into pairs - Each s chooses a picture which he/she has to explain to their partner using relative clauses. - ss then swap places
