So, I was challenged by a friend to write a lesson using Donald Trump’s quotes for reported speech. It was tricky but here it is.
The idea is largely about bridging the gap between the language rules and the real world. We don’t always just step back a tense, very often we focus on the message and paraphrase.
Objective: By the end of lesson, students will be better able to report longer pieces of speech.
Sub aim: to encourage students to think about using their language / synonyms to understand difficult words in context.
- Time: 2 – 3 hours
