What is the most common lesson plan format when teaching ESL?
The lesson is broken into 3 phases: Engage, Study, Activate. During the engage phase, students are introduced to the day's topic and encouraged to interact to peak their interest. Moving to the study phase, the teacher utilizes worksheets and drills to ensure students understand the material. The activate phase usually involves full participation from the students to employ what they learned during the lesson.
Subject: English as a Second Language
What is the correct way to ask about the weather? How or what?
Both can be used but they have slightly different meanings. HOW is used to ask in general, WHAT is used to ask for specifics. E.G. If you ask, "How is the weather where you live?" The response could be, "The weather is good today." If you ask, "What is the weather where you are?" The response could be, "Today the sun is shining and there are no clouds."
What is the difference between an action and a non-action verb?
Action verbs indicate an actual occurrence or an action. e.g. "They TOOK a look outside." Non-action verbs instead refer to a state of being, such as an emotion, opinion, or desire. e.g. "I AM happy to be here."
