This is a step by step process to help students discover what is reported speech. This package includes:
1. 3 page Lesson
2. answer key
I have been using this to help my students learn reported speech. It could be done individually or collaboratively. The learners are encouraged to notice, ask questions, make hypotheses, and test them. The teacher remains as a guide on the side and a consciousness-raiser.
It is easier to learn when the students take responsibility of their own learning. In this lesson students:
1. Read a conversation and an email and answer a comprehension questions (noticing)
2. Identify the changes in tense, modals and some time expressions (consciousness-raising).
3. report some sentences (practice)
