This is a powerpoint presentation which I made for an effective presentation of the past continuous tense grammar rule. I think it is useful because the presentation of the grammar rule is followed by an ESL video (I had to erase the video from the ppt because of the uploading stuff, but I added the youtube link of the video so that you can find and add the video to the presentation. It is on the notes part of the blank page.) and a practice part. Your students should say what those people in the pictures were doing while it was raining yesterday.
