TP # 8
Intermediate level


In this lesson, I will be testing their knowledge about the passive voice, then I will be teaching them the missing parts either the meaning or the pronunciation or the form, and then I will be testing them again to confirm and compare, then we will be performing a freer activity of writing as it is suitably expressive for the passive voice more than speaking for this level.

Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and provide controlled practice of passive voice in the context of crime

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide product writing practice of a story in the context of Crimes


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I will show a photo on the projector of a murder of a woman and then ask them to sit in pairs, and discuss the photo, and then get a feedback of the possible story that they will come up with.

Test #1 (3-7 minutes) • To gauge students' prior knowledge of the target language

I will give them a H/O having gaps to see the problems that they might have in the TL, I will present it as the story of the girl in the photo then I will monitor very carefully to identify the missing parts of the TL. In case they have a deficiency in any of the MFP, then I will clarify it on the board in the Teach stage. I will make them pair check and feedback in the answerkey that I will give them then.

Teach (9-12 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

I will clarify the passive, according to the result of the first test, by clarifying its meaning by telling them it's a grammatical voice that is used to show interest in the person or the object that experiences an action rather than the person or object that performs the action, its form in which the object becomes the subject and we conjugate verb to be and put the main verb in the past participle, and the pronunciation by showing the stress and the pronunciation of the contracted forms.

Test #2 (5-8 minutes) • Check students' use of the target language again and compare with the first test

We will have another controlled activity, another H/O of change the form from active to passive and from passive to active, then we will pair check, then feedback a couple of them, then I will hand them the answer key on a separate H/O.

Free practice (9-12 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

The students will be divided into pairs, according to their count, then each pair will have a drawing of a crime and they shall write a small story about it using the 5 forms of present simple, past simple, will, would and present perfect. Then each writer will stick his writing on the wall and a gallery of writings will be established and then the feedback will be the errors in the TL they had.
