- I will set a scene about a birthday party at Melih's house. He invited all his grandchildren and his friends' grandchildren from different parts of town. The kids are playing a game about the city that they were born and the country that they come from. They should be using the words like the most crowded city, the largest store in their city, what is more, interesting in their homes? I would ask these questions to motivate students interests. - I will pass broken sentences to each student out and have them complete each sentence by finding the other half to fill the gaps using 2 words. - the answers are taped on the wall - students can check their answers.
- I will pass out a blank sheet of paper - students will listen to the audio script and write the answers in any order they like on that piece of paper. (1-6 questions) - I will pause the recording after each question so students get a chance to think and write. - I will look at students' shirts, shoes etc. and have them get in pairs using the comparative or superlative adjectives. For example, the brightest shirt can pair up with the less bright, the oldest with the youngest, can pair up to do this activity. - students swap answers - take turns to ask and answer questions about the places you wrote about. Were any of your answers the same? - I will write down the tally numbers of students having the same answers.
- I will pass out the table information on different cities in Europe. - will ask students about population density, have them pronounce km^2. - I will use phonology on Challe de Gaulle /shale de gaul/ - I will play the audio script and demonstrate the first statement and ask the class to decide if it is true or false. - I will pause after each statement to allow students to look at the table, think and write. - I will correct the false statements. - I will have students check their answers in pairs. - i will tape the answer key underneath the table. - Students will create 3 more sentences in pairs using comparative and superlative forms accurately. - students will self-correct or students partner will correct the wrong statement.
this is a follow-up task. - students will write 4 sentences to compare your country to a nearby country or an English-Speaking country you know. - students use these prompts /proms/ - I will give those prompts (cities - climate - cost of living - population - scenery - size) - I will elicit these vocabularies to make sure students get the meaning of them. - i will have students grouped in some kind of superlative adjective category - the most hard-working people, who like to listen to music more often than the news? who are more sleepier during the day than the night? who are more likely to watch movies in English than the Turkish language? - students will compare their ideas in groups
