This is a lesson plan for JHS New Crown 2 pg. 34 GET Plus "It’s ○○ for △△ to ~ ." It's a tricky grammar point, so please collaborate with your OTE on how to explain the nuances of the grammar so students will understand. This lesson is meant to practice the grammar point, not to necessarily teach it initially.
Here is the flow of the PowerPoint:
Read the comic in the textbook with your OTE. Ask students to explain the meaning in Japanese. This is the point where my OTE explained the grammar in Japanese and students took a memo.
Practice some more examples from the textbook and encourage students to create their own. "What is fun for you?", "What is difficult for you?"
Distribute the worksheet!
Check the meaning of the textbook word bank adjectives "easy, difficult, necessary, important..." Some students will hopefully know some of these already, but I encouraged them to write the meaning of any unfamiliar words.
Every student will get a card with an activity on it. I laminate these and reuse them for every class. There are some silly ones in there. There are also a couple of cards specific to Hyogo, so feel free to customize to your area. That will make it more relatable for students as well!
Do an example of the dialogue on the worksheet using the cards with your OTE. Students take memo after each conversation and then switch partners (they can switch randomly or move seats by the first student moving to the back of the row and every student moving forwards.)
A: Let's (students read the activity on their card).
B: Its's OO for us/me/you to ~" (students use the word bank on their sheet to help).
A: I agree. / I disagree. / I see. (react)
A and B switch roles.
- Repeat until you run out of time or want students to do the dialogue for the class!
