Abstract:
In this lesson, students will distinguish the literal and non-literal meanings of verbal and written content in different contexts. The lesson targets adult learners of English who have demonstrated Grades 3- 4 or B-C reading level. Learners will demonstrate an understanding of idioms by using context clues in the sentences to help figure out the meanings of idioms, by drawing out idioms without using words or letters, by giving written tips using idioms, and by creating greeting cards.
