Concepts covered include subject and predicate, nouns and adjectives, the genitive case, plurals, gender, prepositions, possessive pronouns, verb conjugations, imperatives, active and passive participles, and masdars. The reference is two pages.
Students are introduced to the topics above with a Warm-Up session to discuss about places in Philadelphia, how to get to those places, etc.
Then, using a real Philadelphia map, the students will learn how to give and follow directions, and also learn some useful expressions related to directions.
The next part of the class is about the explanations of a grammar topic which is used to give and follow directions: the Imperative Tense.
The closing activity will talk about the cardinal directions, which are another way to talk about directions.
As an assessment, the students will write and perform, in pairs, a dialogue about directions using the Imperative Tense.
The total time to complete this lesson is 150 minutes (2 hours and a half).
This is a link to 58 different verb charts. Each verb is chosen due to its relative frequency in the Qur'an. Each chart includes the meaning of the word, its masdar, the different ways it can be conjugated in both past and present, negation and imperatives, duals, and the active and passive participles and their plurals. The charts can be viewed online or downloaded as separate PDF files.
