Teaching Grammar

I think it is most difficult to learn "Relative Pronouns(who, which)" in grammatical items because I hear that many people are poor at it and I think it is difficult to know the difference between Relative Pronouns and also to connect clauses to antecedents in translating sentences.
If I teach it, I will do as follows.
1) Post pictures to show the situation, and give two sentences "The man is sitting." and "He is reading a newspaper."
2) Write the sentences on the board.
3) Say "The man is sitting." and "He is reading a newspaper." and ask the students to repeat it phrase by phrase.
4) Connect two sentences using "who".
⇒The man who is reading a newspaper is sitting.
5) Say "The man who is reading a newspaper is sitting." and ask the students to repeat it phrase by phrase.
6) Explain how the structure is formed.
7) Ask the students to copy it.
8) Give other situations and examples: "The children are brothers." and "They are playing soccer."
⇒The children who are playing soccer are brothers. etc.
9) Write the other sentences on the board.
10) Say "The desk is dirty." and "It is in the corner." and ask the students to repeat it phrase by phrase.
11) Connect two sentences using "which".
⇒The desk which is in the corner is dirty.
12) Say "The desk which is in the corner is dirty." and ask the students to repeat it phrase by phrase.
13) Explain how the structure is formed and the difference between "who" and "which".
14) Ask the students to copy it.
15) Give other situations and examples: "The book is interesting." and "It is thick."
⇒The book which is thick is interesting. etc.
16) Put the jumbled questions.
17) Consolidate the class.
That's all. Thank you.

Happy Days,
Your English writing is getting better and better!
Can you tell me what you mean by # 16 "put the jumbled questions"?
Thanks,

Hi, thank you for coming to my blog. The jumbled questions mean various question, such as the expression of "who" and "which". I want to question children to confirm whether they understood or not. Thanks.
