Grammar - Defining Relative Clauses
To provide clarification and practice of defining relative clauses
To provide fluency and accuracy speaking practice in conversations
Procedure (42-53 minutes)
In the beginning, I start the class with a short greeting. Then I play a little word game with them in order to make them familiar with. For example I say it’s a place where we go when we are sick. They would say hospital. I ask them 3 or 4 words like that and then we go the next stage.
Sts play a word game together. St A give the definition of a word to st B and st B should guess that word with its definition. Then they change roles. St B give the definition of another word and st A should guess that word. It continues in the same way. Then we check the answers.
I ask students to match the sentences and the words to the three category: People, Places and Things. Then we check their answers and I ask them in the sentences related to the people what word is common in both sentences ? they would answer who. I ask similar questions for the other two categories and their answers would be "where" and "that". So I elicit these from sts: Who for people , Where for places, That for things.
With the help of sts I clarify that we use Who, Where, That to explain and describe What a person, place or thing is or does. Then we check that how we use who,where or that in sentences. we repeat some sentences with emphasizing on the defining relative clauses. In the end I ask sts some CCQ questions.
Books open, sts go to the grammar bank in the end of their book and do some grammar exercises in pair. Then we check the answers.
sts go the communication of their book and play whats the word together.
Sts discuss some speaking question which I will give them together.
