Relative Clauses
B1 level

Description

In this lesson students will practise relative clause in the context of 'Social Networking Sites'. Students will be provided both defining and non-defining relative clauses. The lesson will start with lead in. T will ask some questions about social media to make some free dialogues. 'Which websites do you use?', 'Why do you use them?', 'Do you know who made that website?' etc. Then it will continue with a shouting dictation by using an edited text from a course book. In the text there are some relative clauses missing. Students are expected to work in pairs and read out loud the text in order to fill the missing parts of the sentences. A certain time limit will be set and after that students will do peer check, then T will provide the whole text as an answer key. After that, T will provide the structure of relative clause and main clause and clarify relative pronouns. Then SS will fill in the rules from the HO and WCFB will be given. Students will try to find the defining and non-defining clauses from the exercise given. WCFB will be given again. This will be followed by an exercise in which they circle the right relative pronoun. Peer check will be done, and T will provide the answers. Finally students will listen an audio to find the pauses of the relative clauses. Answer key will be given.

Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of relative clause in the context of 'Social Networking Sites'

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide specific information listening practice using a text about pausing for effect in the context of websites

Procedure

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

The lesson will start with lead in. T will ask some questions about social media to make some free dialogues. 'Which websites do you use?', 'Why do you use them?', 'Do you know who made that website?' etc. T will elicit the ideas and set the context with the dialogues about social websites.

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

T will continue with a shouting dictation by using an edited text from a course book. In the text there are some relative clauses missing. Students are expected to work in pairs and read out loud the text in order to fill the missing parts of the sentences. A certain time limit will be set and after that students will do peer check, then T will provide the whole text as an answer key.

Clarification (8-10 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

T will provide the structure of relative clause and main clause and clarify relative pronouns. Defining and non-defining clauses will be analysed. T will ask CCQs and check understanding. If the students don't understand will clarify again briefly by simple examples.

Controlled Practice (3-5 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Then SS will fill in the rules from the HO and WCFB will be given. Students will try to find the defining and non-defining clauses from the exercise given. WCFB will be given.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

Students will do an exercise in which they circle the right relative pronoun. Peer check will be done, and T will provide the answers as a whole class feed back.

Free Practice (5 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

Students will listen an audio to find the pauses of the non-definig relative clauses. Answer key will be given. WCFB will also be done.
