**LESSON PLAN** Grade Level: Grade 8 Subject: English Home Language Topic: Language Structure and Conventions - Parts of speech **Lesson Duration**: 2 Hours **Learning Outcomes**: By the end of the lesson, students will be able to identify and use the eight different parts of speech in English: Nouns, Pronouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Adverbs, Prepositions, Conjunctions, and Interjections. **Materials Needed**: Chalkboard or whiteboard, chalk or markers, handouts on the parts of speech, example sentences, and a comprehension worksheet for assessment. **INTRODUCTION (15 Minutes)** 1. **Ice-breaker**: Start the class with a fun ice-breaker. Ask the students to describe their favourite animal using as many descriptive words/adjectives as they can without actually saying the name of the animal. Once everyone is done, go around the classroom and guess the animals based on the descriptions given. 2. **Lead-in**: Transition from the ice-breaker into the lesson. Talk about how the words used to describe their favourite animals are known as adjectives and these are part of something we call the 'parts of speech'. 3. **Introduction to the topic**: Give a brief introduction on the concept of 'parts of speech' in English Language. Explain that there are eight major parts of the speech that we will be learning today. **DEVELOPMENT OF THE LESSON (1 Hour 30 Minutes)** 1. **Explicit Teaching (30 Minutes)**: Here, introduce and explain the concept of each of the eight parts of speech (Nouns, Pronouns, Verbs, Adjectives, Adverbs, Prepositions, Conjunctions, and Interjections) individually. Use examples to consolidate understanding. 2. **Group work (25 Minutes)**: Divide the students into eight groups. Give each group a part of speech to work on. They will need to come up with examples of their given part of speech and present it to the class. 3. **Engage Students with Examples (20 Minutes)**: Write sentences on the board and ask for volunteers to identify different parts of speech in the sentences. Correction and clarification to be done as necessary. 4. **Independent Work (15 Minutes)**: Hand out a worksheet with sentences in which students have to identify different parts of speech. **CONCLUSION (15 Minutes)** 1. **Review/Recap (10 Minutes)**: Ask students what they have learnt in the lesson. Correct any misconceptions and reinforce the right understanding. Briefly summarize the lesson, restating the definitions and the examples of the eight parts of speech. 2. **Closing Activity (5 Minutes)**: End the lesson with an activity where students create one sentence that includes all eight parts of speech. **Homework/Assessment**: Set for homework an exercise of identifying and correctly using parts of speech from a comprehension passage to check for understanding. This will serve as a formative assessment. **Reflection**: Note the students’ strengths, areas for improvement and any common misconceptions for future planning. **NOTE**: Modify the lesson plan as needed depending on the responses from the students, adapting to their pace of learning and understanding.
