Procedure (37-49 minutes)
The teacher shows a picture of models and ask the students tell the words that comes into their minds when they hear the word " model". She brainstorms and writes some words, especially the ones that she is looking for like shopping, clothes, dresses, rich, expensive etc..
The teacher elicits the sentences "the models are rich" and "the models buy expensive clothes". And models the sentence "the models who buy expensive clothes are rich." as an active example of participle clauses. And as a passive example the teacher elicits the sentences "the clothes are expensive" and "the models buy them." And then she introduces the sentences "the clothes (which are) bought by moldes are expensive. The teacher asks CCQs to make the meaning clear and focuses on the form. Then she shows two more pictures and asks the students to make sentences by using participle clauses.
The teacher gives the students cards in different colours and asks the students who have the same colour to come to the board. The students make a sentence with the words on the cards, they show the cards and read the sentence to the class. And the teacher asks which words they can leave out, when the students say the word, the student who has that word sits down. To show where we can place the adverbs (mostly frequencies) a student holds the cards with adverbs.
The teachers asks them to find the similar examples in the text they read in the previous class. She asks them ICQs to help them understand what exactly they are looking for.
The students do the exercises in grammar 1, page 31. They check their answers with their partners and the teachers asks various students to tell the class the answers.
The teacher asks the students to do the grammar exercise 2 on page 31. They are supposed to change the sentences by using participle clauses. After they finish, they check the answers with their partners and tell the class.
