the teacher will brainstorm with the students on the meaning of the word ‘describe’ (v) and ‘description’ (n), and how things are described.

Preparation of Materials. 

A teacher has to decide on the teaching/learning materials he/she is going to use.

In this sub topic/lesson

 In terms of teaching media, teacher is going to apply various cards, pictures, diagrams, and texts as well. For example, colours are easy to prepare. You can take marker pens of different colours and draw various objects.

Target Practice

At this point, teacher shows/guides students how to the practice of the functions of the sub topic. A teacher has to show or guide students to the target practice of the grammatical functions of the sub topic.

TOPIC 6: GIVING DESCRIPTIONS | ENGLISH FORM 2

In this sub topic/lesson

Teacher will guide students to the application of various appropriate expressions when talking about things in terms of their quality. Some common expressions are:

…is beautiful;. …is ugly; A tall building; …this is brown/purple/orange; …is handsome;… is a pretty…; …..not a white….

Note: A teacher should now prepare some comprehension questions to guide students to be able to easily identify the descriptive words and understand the content:

Activity Four: 

Students’ Practice Time. Teacher will ask students to write their own short texts to describe quality of things of their choice.

To facilitate this writing activity, teacher asks students to be in pairs or groups, then ask them to write not less than sentences that show the description of things in terms of quality.

This activity depends on teacher’s choice. The teacher may ask students to write a text like the one provided above or ask them to write dialogues.

Activity Five: 

There are two options in this activity. First, students can exchange their works for their own assessment guided by the teacher, and second to present what they have written to the classroom boards for the rest of the class to see.

Activity Four: 

Here, students will be guided by their teacher to read a variety of texts and note down description of things in terms of quantity.

The following Teacher’s model can be used along with others to test students if they can identify the things that are described in terms of quantity.

Text: Teacher’s Model

Karema High School is the school with plenty of blessings. First, the school has many trees; both normal and fruit trees. These trees give us a lot of benefits like fruits, soil stability, and refreshing shadows.

The school is also surrounded by many paddy fields. They enjoy much water as well because the school is beside Lake Tanganyika. When you come at Karema you have to relax and wait for many fresh ‘Mikebuka’ and a bowl of rice!

TOPIC 6: GIVING DESCRIPTIONS | ENGLISH FORM 2

Ask students to:

Identify any five words expressing quantity.

Note: Other questions may be formed out of this text.

Activity Five:

A teacher may ask students to write short texts describing quantity of things of their choice. The teacher should allow students to choose their own things to describe, but under his/her guidance so that to keep students in the track.

For example, a teacher may help students to choose things like; school, farm, garden, village, town, and others, then ask them to describe them in terms of quantity. For example, a student who has chosen describe the garden, he/she may have following descriptions of it:

I take care of my garden every day. It has a lot of vegetables. I water some water every day to make it evergreen and more productive. It gets plenty of sunlight.

Students should be urged to apply the appropriate expressions when expressing things in terms of quantity. It doesn’t matter how small practice is, but it is good if it is effective to students.

TOPIC 6: GIVING DESCRIPTIONS | ENGLISH FORM 2

GRAMMAR PRACTICE:

Adjectives of Quantity

Adjective of Quantity is the kind of adjective that shows the quantity of nouns or pronouns.

These are adjectives that are used to describe nouns and distinguish nouns from other nouns. These adjectives do not provide the exact number of nouns or amount. It just indicates ‘how much’ noun is there in the sentence.

Here are some examples:

He has many books in his house.

He is so handsome.

Matatizo is very poor.

He has completed most of the tasks.

He has enough money to buy a car.

TOPIC 6: GIVING DESCRIPTIONS | ENGLISH FORM 2

In the above sentences, the words, many, so, very, most, and enough are adjectives of quantity because they show the amount of noun. Adjectives of number or numerical adjectives also specify the amount of noun in the sentence.

Other examples are:

Most of the boys like to listen to music.

My bucket is empty.

We have no enough time for practice.
