Approaches to Teaching ELL GrammarWhat do you think the difference between adirect approach and an indirect approach toteaching grammar is?Book Page 16Take a look at these two different lesson plans.Which one follows a direct approach andwhich one follows an indirect approach?
Approaches to Teaching ELL GrammarAim: Improving Telephoning SkillsActivity: Role playing using office telephone linesLevel: Intermediate to advancedOutline: Indirect Approach• Review phrases used in telephoning.• Ask each student to write out notes for a telephone conversation that they would typically have with a native speaker.• Ask students to choose another student who should respond to the call for which he/she has written notes.• Stress the fact that students need to understand and take note of everything crucial. If they do not understand they need to ask you to repeat, tell you to speak more slowly - anything that is needed to understand.• Ask your students to go to a different office, make sure to get the extension for the office. Ask students to take notes on the call.• Now, take the various notes, call the other extension and ask for the person suggested by the student who wrote the notes.• Once you have repeated this exercise, get students to call each other in their own offices to repeat the exercise. Remember it is crucial to actually use the phone, as the difficulty lies in understanding English over the phone.
Approaches to Teaching ELL GrammarAim: Improve recognition of the first and second conditional forms used inconditional statements, while inductively reviewing the structures.Activity: Reading a text with first and second conditional forms, developingquestions using the first and second conditionals, replying to questionsLevel: IntermediateOutline: Direct Approach• Ask students to imagine this situation: You’ve arrived home late at night and you find that the door is open to your apartment. What would you do?• Refresh students awareness of the conditionals.• Have students read prepared extract using conditionals.• Ask students to underline all conditional structures.• In groups, students complete fill-in activity based on previous reading.• Go over corrections as a class.• In groups, have students prepare two “What if…” situations on a separate piece of paper. Ask students to employ first and second conditionals.• Ask students to exchange their prepared situations with another group.• Students in each group discuss the "what if..." situations.• Move around the class and help students to correctly produce the first and second conditional forms.
