Parts of Speech
Students’ age range: 10-12
Main subject: Language arts and literature
Topic: Adjectives
Description: Preliminary (2 minutes)
• The teacher enters the class and greets the students. They are reminded of the classroom rules, and that they are going to look at a video clip in order to determine the topic for the lesson.

Introduction (8 minutes)
• Upon looking at the video clip which lasts a minute and thirty seconds they are going to brain storm for two minutes and give their opinions of what is an adjective.
• Students then will coin their own definition of adjective and copy it into their exercise books.

Teacher Modelling (5 minutes)
• Based on the definition that the students come up with, the teacher will then state what the dictionary says. The students will then compare their definition with what is mentioned in the dictionary. Changes will be made to the student’s definition only if what they would coined is inadequate.

Independent working time (15 minutes)
• Create three sentences in their exercise books based on adjectives that were used in the video clip.
• Students will communicate the sentences to their teacher by volunteering to read what they came up with. They will be guided as to whether what is being said is acceptable by the teacher.
• Teacher then invites students to select a piece of paper from a jar (which was brought to class by the teacher) with an adjective written on it. The student has to act out the adjective without using words and then the other classmates has to guess what is being depicted by the peers.

Interactive Modelling (15 minutes)
• Students are randomly placed in groups of three to discuss the importance of adjectives and how they make sentences relatable to the real world.
• At the end of the discussions, students would be asked to give their opinions. The passive learners would be encouraged to represent their groups.
