Upper-Intermediate Level level
Grammar: to introduce and explain participle clauses
Speaking using participle clauses in the context of famous people and BDD
Procedure (37-55 minutes)
Photos of three well-known celebrities with BDD are presented to the class with Google Slides. Following the context of the previous lesson, Ss complete a short fill in the gap HO derived from the reading in the previous lesson in order to highlight the TL in the reading. This handout also introduces students to the -ing and -ed participle clauses within the reading.
The teacher highlights the difference between the -ing and -ed form of participle clauses on the board with Google Slides, providing meaning, form, and pronunciation with a couple of short examples. Students then complete the second fill in the gap HO and compare in PW.
In the form of controlled practice, students will choose/underline the correct participles to complete the text derived from the readings in ex. 1 pg 31 of the Straight Forward Student's book. Students will then compare answers in PW. After allowing time for this, the teacher will display the correct answers on the board for FB.
Students will do Ex. 2 from the SB and rewrite phrases using participle clauses to confirm their understanding of the TL and prepare for more meaningful and semi-controlled practice. Answers will be displayed on Google Slides as an answer key for FB.
Ss will look at ex. 3 from the SB pg. 31, and assign a specific celebrity to the phrases the rewrote in ex. 2. Ss will then compare in GW and discuss the question in ex. 3 with one another.
Students will focus on the TL and speaking (receptive skills) by viewing two photos of well known celebrities (Michael Jackson and Kylie Jenner) and discussing their makeover and changes in PW. Some example sentences discussing the celebrities containing participle clauses will be displayed with Google Slides for students on the WB to provide examples and FB using the TL.
