4. Background of the Lesson:
Some participles (like 'bored' or 'boring') can be used as adjectives. These are used in a slightly different way from normal adjectives.
This lesson will help students use qualitative adjectives (i.e. -ing: exciting, boring, relaxing, etc.) and effect adjectives (i.e. -ed: amused, bored,
shocked, etc.). It is often one of the most common problems among many English as Second Language learners. The lesson may takee any authentic
text that teachers may choose as its starting point. Students read the text, identify adjectives by answering questions helping them become aware of
the basic differences between these two confusingly similar adjective types.
