You’re probably wondering how to teach grammar? Instead of starting a class by saying “Today we’re going to learn and practice blah blah”, why not mysteriously lead the student in by asking them to read a short passage without telling them what’s next? That’s how english4tutors lesson plans usually start.
Teaching grammar with our lesson plans – how does it work?
After reading the passage, the student is asked if they are familiar with the grammar unit and if so, if they are able to identify examples in the text. If not, the teacher points to the first example and asks the student to follow the lead.
What usually follows is the theoretical part of the grammar unit where the structure and use are explained thoroughly enough for the student to comprehend.
After the student has gained the necessary knowledge, off we go to test it in practical use. This usually means the student is going to fill in the gaps with the missing words, correct the mistakes, underline the correct option, etc.
Finally, they are nudged to apply their knowledge and skills in a speaking exercise.
