Lesson Plan in English II I.

Objectives: Through the given examples, the students with 80% accuracy are expected to: A. define the four kinds of sentences,subject, verb, and conjunction B. give examples for the four kinds of sentences C. identify the subject, verb, clauses, and conjunctions in the sentences II. Subject Matter: A. Topic: The Four Kinds of Sentences B. Skill Focused: Analytical Thinking C. Value Focused: appropriateness, accuracy D. References: Exploring Life Through English and American Literature, page s193-196 E. Materials: strips of Carolina, marker, sticks, construction paper, adhes ive tape III. Procedure: A. Stimulating Activity Since the teacher has assigned the students to research in advance on the four k inds of sentences,she starts the lesson with an activity called HIT THE PINYATA wh erein the teacher chooses somebody from the class to hit the piata. The things in side the piata are candies, chocolate, chips, biscuits and balloons with pieces o f rolled paper in it. The pieces of rolled paper are numbered from 1-4 and are c orresponding to the four kinds of sentences. The sentences include the following : Several old cars started slowly. The pilot misplaced his map, but he still found the airport. Because it was cold in the morning, I decided to wear a jacket. Even though I love to eat ice cream, I havent had any money lately, so I cant go t o the store to buy some. The sentences are posted on the board and the students are going to use the foll owing sentences along the discussion. B. Actual Activity Then the teacher asks the following questions: 1. Do the following sentences contain subject and verb? What kind of clause is then given example? 2. (The teacher uses the first sentence: Several old cars started slowly.) What is the subject in the following sentence? How about the verb? Where is the dependent clause? And the independent clause? 3. Observe the next three sentences, how are they connected? Or what connects the clauses? The teacher then presents the four kinds of sentences and discusses each definit ion. A simple sentence has one complete thought and only one subject-verb connection. 1. Simple subject, simple predicate. Example: Gretchen goes to school. Richard plays basketball. 2. Simple subject, compound predicate. Example: Linda went to the market and bought fruits. Nelson turns on the radio and listens to the music. 3. Compound subject, simple predicate. Example: Father and mother stare at the baby. The priest and the nuns pray together. 4. Compound subject, compound predicate. Example: Jake and T.J. run to the door and welcome their new friends. Maria and Julie prepare the ingredients and bake a carrot cake. A complex sentence consists of an independent clause and a dependent clause, joi

ning them together. Example: Because it was cold in the morning, I decided to wear a jacket. Jason did not lock his front door because he lost his keys. A compound sentence is made by using a coordinating conjunction (for, and , nor, but, or, yet, so) to join two independent clauses using a comma. Example: The pilot misplaced his map, but he still found the airport. The sprinter ran really slow, yet he won the race. The rain poured heavily and it flooded the streets. A compound-complex sentence is made from at least two independent clauses and on e or more dependent clauses. This sentence structure gets to be a little more complicated. Students usually h ave a hard time with this because they have not formed a good base knowledge of the other structures. This is a very common sentence structure in English. Example: Even though I love to eat ice cream, I havent had any money lately, so I cant go t o the store to buy some. Independent Clause: I havent had any money lately Independent Clause: I cant go to the store to buy some. Dependent Clause: Even though I love to eat ice cream The doctor attends to the sick infant while a nurse helps him and an attendant w aits for his instruction. The policeman runs after the criminal while the crowd gives way to him and the o ld woman prays to get her money back.

C.Follow-Up Activity The teacher calls a student randomly and asks which part of the article that they could locate the simple,compound, complex, andcompound-complex sentenc es This article s factual accuracy may be compromised due to out-of-date in formation. Please help improve the article by updating it. There may be addition al information on the talk page. (February 2012) Renato Corona, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines was imp eached on December 12, 2011. Corona was the third official, after President Jose ph Estrada on 2000 and Ombudsman Merceditas Gutierrez earlier on 2011, to be imp eached by the House of Representatives. Corona was perceived as an ally of former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, who had appointed him as chief justice of the Supreme Court, days after the 2010 pr esidential election. This comes after the Supreme Court ruled that the president s ban on appointments does not extend to the judiciary. Since then, the Supreme Court has been accused of ruling unfavorably of the Aquino administration in ca ses concerning Arroyo. The Senate, which had already convened as an impeachment court, began the trial on January 16, 2012. This is the second impeachment trial in the history of the Philippines, as Gutierrez resigned prior to the trial. IV. Evaluation: The teacher groups the class into four. She lets the groups to view a short film entitled Geri s Game. Each member in the group is going to write the plot of the film. The first member would write the exposition, the next would write the comp lication, then the other would write about the climax, and so on and so fort.

In order not to encounter ambiguity they need to follow the order: ELEMENTS OF THE PLOT THE SCENES EXPOSOTION COMPLICATION CLIMAX DENOUEMENT CONCLUSION
