Lesson plan: Fun vs. Funny & Scared vs. Scary
« on: May 12, 2011, 08:42:59 am »
I started this class with two short videos. The first video was funny, and because my students are middle school boys i kept it simple with a video of an iguana farting in a bathtub. The second video was scary, and i found it on youtube by searching for "scary car video."
Enjoy.

This is great.  It's perfect for the 30 minute filler class I have to teach today.
 :D

This is great! I'm definitely going to use it for my after school class. Maybe I'll get just a few of them to use the right terms!

I like the concept. I'm thinking about reworking it into a different PPT and adding in the biggest offender.... Bored / Boring

Love this one.  I always think people are so humble when they constantly say, "I am boring".

Nice one.  I was just thinking I'd like to do a lesson on this after some of my best students were confusing those words during sports day and our field trip to an amusement park.

My ideas on how - and included interesting/interested (vocab they're learning now).

I love all of this material.  The main powerpoint I'm attaching is from three different authors.  I can't take credit for any of this.  I'm just combining a lot of material.  Korean students are always mixing up bored vs boring, scared vs. scary, and fun vs. funny.  So if you try this lesson your Korean teachers might like you...

I updated the main powerpoint again.  The additional slides are from a 5th author.  I added the explanation that "funny" can sometimes mean strange.  More importantly I added at the end of the powerpoint an explanation of the new phrase "make fun of."  This is important because it is in the Simpsons Game.

Thank you! Please drill it over and over and over again. If you can get the distinction to be second nature to them, you've basically handed the teacher who'll eventually get saddled with teaching them passive forms a free pass. :laugh:

Okay I was lucky last week and when I was looking for a movie to show my summer camp on the last day of camp I noticed that the people who did work on the Inside Out movie covered the differences between fun and funny and scared and scary.  I'm really glad because I knew I needed more examples for scared and scary.  So here is yet another update!  Should be useful for camp!

Oh, thank you so much for the plan! It'll be pretty useful for my classes.

Thank you for the materials. I modified the Simpsons game to include the answers and corrected some grammatical errors (random capitalization of common nouns). I also removed the questions about teasing and "make fun of" because I wouldn't teach that material from the PPT.
