Procedure

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

Students are going to have a hand out asking them to check if they agree or not with the statements. Then they compare opinions in pairs.

A listening Task (8-10 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

students are going to listen to four people giving their opinion. They are going to match the opinions to the statements in exercise 1 using agree, partly agree or completely disagree.

Feedback (3 to 5 minutes) • To make sure that students know the meaning , form and pronunciation of most of the ed/ing adjectives

I will give the students a handout of the tapescript to circle the adjectives people used to give their opinions.

Language Analysis (6-8 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the task language

After the students finish listening and matching the opinions to the statements. I am going to clarify the meaning, form, and pronunciation of some adjectives through pictures and board work. I will focus on the endings ed and ing and how we pronounce them. I will give a hint that upset is irregular. Students have to know the differences in meaning between adjectives with ed and adjectives with ing endings.

Language Practice (controlled practice) (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with practice of the task language

students are going to work in pairs to choose the correct alternative. They are going to read the sentences then choose either an adjective with ed or adjective with ing.
