In linguistics, the study of causative structures has a great importance in the sense that it contains the interaction of the components of linguistic planes such as morphology, syntax and semantics in and maybe inter-languages. In this perspective, the aim of the study is to prepare activities that will help presenting the causative structures which generally presented focusing on structure and form in the grammar books within the framework of Counciousness-Raising Approach (Sharwood-Smith,1981; Ellis, 1993). In this context, the study examines the morphological causatives in Turkish within the framework of Counciousness-Raising Approach. The study was based on the steps of the taxonomy of learning domains (Bloom, 1956). By the help of those learning domains collected in six steps as Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis and Evaluation, it is expected from the learners to be aware of a particular feature of language; to get results from the structure that they have been aware of; and to organize their views concerning language according to those results. By the help of this taxonomy, five different educational objectives were prepared which will help the students to; a) realize the causative structure which already exists in his native language and revise the knowledge of the structures b) provide them to see the verbs in active and causative voice together and understand the causatives structurally and functionally c) use the realized structures in their own sentences d) notice the patterns in the form and function relation e) make conceivable choices by using the acquired knowledge considering causatives.
