Subject Matter Topic: Descriptive Essay Video Presentation: What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong References: English for a Better World III Emerita G. Magsajo-Sarno, Ph.D., Esther L.

Procedures Teacher’s Activity A. Preliminary Activities 1. Prayer 2. Greeting of the class B. Developmental Activities 1. Motivation Before we start our lesson for today, I will divide the class into two groups. Are you familiar with Louis Armstrong’s song “What a Wonderful World”? Now, we are going to watch a video presentation and since you already know the song, I want you to sing along with it while watching. AmI making myself clear? Here are the guide questions that you are going to answer after watching Students’ Activity Yes, Ma’am. Yes, Ma’am.
  2. 2. M B S B | 2 the presentation. Kindly read this altogether. As you are watching the video, I also require you to write down your insights, ideas, and descriptions on the pictures flashed on the screen. AmI clear? If that so, then let’s watch now the video presentation. How do you find the video? Good! Now, it’s time for us to answer the guide questions. Kindly answer number 1. Excellent! How about number 2? Nice answer. Do you mind to answer Guide Questions: 1. What are the wonders you see in the presentation? How will you describe them? 2. In what waysyou can show your love and appreciation to the world where you are living now? 3. What is the message of the song? 4. What will you do to make our world a better place to live in? 5. What are the adjectives used in the song? What do they describe? Yes, Ma’am. (Students watch the presentation) Ma’am, it is so overwhelming to know how wonderful our world is, but the saddest part is that our world today is almost destroyed by people.  Trees- green and fruitful  Roses/flowers- red and bloomed  Ocean- clean and blue  Birds and other animals- free and peaceful  People- forgiving  Plant more trees  Taking care of environment  Refrain fromloitering around
  3. 3. M B S B | 3 the third question? Great! And the fourth question? And number 5? It seems that you really understand the message of the song. Now, that you have your own group, you’re going to write an essay regarding the descriptions you gather earlier while watching the video. But, there’s a twist. The first person should start writing the paragraph. Do not reveal to your members what you are writing. When you have written about a paragraph, fold the paper down so that only the last sentence can only be seen. Pass the paper to the next person, and the routine is the same. The only clue you have to continue writing is the last line of the paragraph and the focus is on video presented. Do not forget to incorporate descriptive words on your work. Afterwards, you will read your outputs aloud. Be sure that your work is finished as the music stops. Time’s up! You can now read your outputs.  The song tells us that we should take care of the world before it’s too late. People have lost its essence and beauty. And because of the turbulence of our days, we forget to observe the many wonders that our world offers.  If we want our world a better place to live in, then we should start it with ourselves. A good citizen can influence other people to help one another to make our world peaceful and better.  Wonderful-world  Pretty- colors of the rainbow  Bright, blessed- day  Dark, sacred- night (Students in groups write the activity while the videois played for the second time) (Students read their outputs aloud)
  4. 4. M B S B | 4 What have you noticed in the essay you have written? Based on the activity you havedone, what do you think is our lesson for today? Good. Do you mind to read the definition of descriptive essay? Thank you. It is also the genre that encourages the student’s ability to create a written account of a particular experience. What is more, this genre allowsfor a great deal of artistic freedom(the goal of which is to paint an image that is vivid and moving in the mind of the reader). To write an effective descriptiveessay, we have some guidelines to follow. Kindly read number 1. Thank you. So, if I ask you to write a descriptive essay about nature or the world as a whole, you must jot down all the adjectives that suit the topic to avoid mental blocked. This means that words are chosen carefully, particularly for their relevancy in relation to that which you are intending to describe. We must be accurate always in describing things to avoid misunderstanding. If you are describing something, you need to be appealing to the senses of the reader. Explain how the thing smelled, felt, sounded, tasted, or looked. Embellish the moment with senses. And what are the senses used? Can you give examples on sentences applying this rule with regards to the video wewatched earlier? It usually described particular person, place, thing, or event. Ma’am, our lesson for today is all about descriptiveessay. Descriptive essay is a genre of essay that asks the student to describe something—object, person, place, experience, emotion, situation, etc.  Take time to brainstorm.  Use clear and concise language  Use your senses Ma’am, we have the eyes, nose, ears, tongue, and skin.
  5. 5. M B S B | 5 Very good. And the fourth one? The structure of your essay can start fromgeneral to specific or in chronological order as long as the reader conveysthe message you want to say. It always depends on the style the writers have. You must strive to present an organized and logical description if the reader is to come away fromthe essay with a cogent sense of what it is you are attempting to describe. And the last rule? The conclusion may also use descriptive words; however, make certain the conclusion is logical and relevant. Okay. Now that we are familiar with the rules, let’s analyze an example of essay first. (Teacher groups students into four and each will be given a particular guideline in essay writing. Students judge the essay based on the guideline assigned to them. 3 minutes will be given to write their judgment) Answersvary  Organize details  Draw a logical conclusion MEMORIES FROM THE CABANA I was born and raised in South America, a continent with a lot of mountain ranges–ideal for mountain climbing and hiking-long winding rivers, lush forests, wonderful beaches, as well as valleys with breathtaking views. Based on experience, I can say that it is a tropical country; which was confirmed during my history class in sixth grade. In a country where it’s hot and humid, my fashion statement is sporting a large white (sometimes blue) t-shirt and a Hawaiian type shorts. A dark pair of shades is also an important part of my get-up as it protects my eyes from the sun’s harsh rays. Being born in South America you might think that I have dark hair with brown eyes and a charming smile; a typical Cabana boy.
