Concept Attainment Lesson
This is a concept attainment lesson you can use with your whole group. See this video for more information on using this model of instruction.
Using the concept attainment model (See here for more details), students analyze two groups of sentences to determine the patterns I've set up. This time, it's past progressive vs simple past tenses.
- Students receive two groups of example sentences. They ponder why they were placed into those two categories.
- We add three ungrouped examples. Now students decide which groups those examples belong in.
- We reveal the correct groupings then discuss the differences between the two groups. Group A features the past progressive tense and Group B features simple past tense. We close with a practice worksheet.
