The Learning Designer
Developed by the London Institute of Education, the Learning Designer is essentially an online tool to help create a lesson plan or scheme of lessons through a series of teaching and learning activities (TLAs). One of its useful features is the pie chart which shows how the time is divided in the lesson to the different types of activities (categorised as Acquisition, Collaboration, Discussion, Inquiry, Practice, and Production).
The 350+ adjectives in the PDFs and slideshow below are compiled to help students expand their vocabulary, in particular when answering questions such as:
“Describe the character of…”
“What sort of person do you think…?”
“What do you learn about the personality of…?”
“What impression do you form of…?”
Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing Activities
I’ve detailed collaborative writing, improvisation and story chain activities, as well as a game called ‘Homonym!’, on the ‘Homonym!’ post which can be adapted for use with the adjectives below.
See the captions below each image for details of the PDF.

The cards will appear in a random order in the slideshow below. Press the pause button to stop the auto-play and use the arrows to navigate between cards.
Useful alternative to printing out the cards, especially if students have their own devices.
