This flipped lesson focuses on a grammar topic of double comparatives and a discussion about car-free cities. Students watch a video and work with grammar on their own. In the lesson, they have more speaking practice and creative work.
This is a Flipped Classroom lesson plan. In a nutshell, it means that the first part of the lesson needs to be done by students at home. Learn more about flipped classroom and how we implement it in these lesson plans in our post.
The worksheet includes a couple of activities students complete before the lesson. First, they work with a video. Before watching it, they read the statements about car-free cities and try to decide if they are true or false. After that, they watch the first part of the video and check their answers. Then, students watch the second part of the video and make notes about solutions different cities are implementing to be car-free. Students also look at the sentences from the previous exercise containing double comparatives, read some grammar notes and try to put the information into practice.
This part of the lesson on double comparatives starts with an activity in which students try to complete the sentences using the target structure. The sentences are about cars. The teacher can extend the activity with a short discussion. After that, students work in groups or in pairs and exchange the information they learnt in the video using double comparative structures. They also share their thoughts about it. The activity is followed with more discussion questions. Students talk about living in a car-free city, the ability to get by without a car where they live now and the reasons to go car-free. Students also discuss the concept called ‘15-minute city’. There is a short text for students to read about the term after which they express what they think about the concept. At the end of the lesson, students create their own 15-minute city project. If students are into the topic of city design, there is a link to an additional video the teacher can share with them.
This worksheet includes an additional task that you can use as homework or revision. It’s available in the teacher’s version of the worksheet. You can print it, cut it up and hand it out to your students. It’s also included in the e-lesson plan.
