Presentation: (Language and content objectives, comprehensible input, strategies, interaction, feedback)

Read over content objectives. Have students discuss in partners what they think is meant by the content objectives.

Read over the language objectives. Have students discuss in partners what they will be focusing on based on the language objectives.

Go over meaning of prefix, suffix, and root words.

Teach Prefixes Un and Re

Un-not or to do the opposite of

Re-to do again

Motivation: (Building Background)

Link to past learning

we

have talked about similarities and differences before

The teacher will go over a list of roots and affixes the students have already learned. Reviewing what each mean.

Prefixes- anti-against , mis-wrongly, pre-before, In, im, il, ir -not, auto-self, bi-two

Suffixes- ly-characteristic of, ed-past tense verbs, less-without, able, ible-can be done

Roots-cogn-know, act-do, graph-write, cycl-circle, bio-life, san-health, aud-hear, mem-recall

Add ‘un’ and ‘re’ to the list.

Practice/Application:(Meaningful activities, interaction, strategies, practice/application, feedback)

Word Sorting Activity

- Four students will have a poster with a word on it. Two students will have a poster, on with ‘un’ and one with ‘re’. Students with no poster will arrange students with posters to create words. See how many words can be created in 30 seconds.

Review/Assessment:(Review objectives and vocabulary, assess learning)

Invent-a-word: Students will use a list of roots and affixes that they have already become familiar with. They will each create three new words, complete with definitions, to share out with the class.

Possible words include: bicycle, biography, insane, autograph, react, recognize, recognizable, audible, inaudible, recycle, recycling, remember, graphed, acted etc.

Extension:

Instead of completing the regular assignment, students can be given the worksheet where they create their own words and write the definitions

Reflection:

- I feel that the students will be very engaged in this lesson. The movement and signs should assure that all students are participating. I am also moving the lesson along so that students eventually will become independent at achieving the learning objectives.

- If students have a difficult time understanding the new prefixes ‘un’ and ‘re’ I will spend more time practicing as a whole class. Perhaps providing students more time to work with the signs.

- If students have difficulty with creating new words when they are working individually at the end of the lesson I could have them work in partners or small groups instead.
