Instructional Ideas
  • Create additional materials to support instruction using the sample sentences provided in the plan
Classroom Considerations
  • While the resource appears to be aimed toward older students, it could be adapted for elementary pupils
  • Includes detailed instructions for the teacher
  • The lesson procedures build up nicely by starting simple and including plenty of time for partner work and discussion
  • The second sentence on the worksheet appears to be missing a word; however, you can require learners to complete the sentence as they see fit since it is a fill-in-the-blank activity
