Second conditional - Text based presentation
SS will learn and practice the second conditional in the context of hypothetical situations.
SS will practice their skill on gist reading and listening.
Procedure (36-45 minutes)
-T will write the following on the board: (age, job, likes doing on the weekend, good or bad person) - T will then give a picture of busy street scene and ask SS to speculate about the people in the picture in pairs. (1min) - T will elicit some ideas and ask if they ever do this when they are alone in public. - T will then put up the picture of Professor Richard Wiseman to introduce him, who he is the presented of the show: 'The people watches' and explain that in this show they analyse the people and their behavior through asking questions.
- T will introduce the text and provide the question that they'll answer at the end of gist reading. - T will write the question on the board 'why does the reviewer like the programme? - T will then give out the text and ask them to read in 2 minutes to be able to answer the written question, then they'll check answers in pair and T will elicit the answer.
- T will elicit the questions that is mentioned in the text which is asked by Richard Wiseman and write the question on the board: 'If no one saw you, would you take something without paying for it?' -T will use this example from the text to convey the meaning, form and pronunciation of second conditional - T will ask the question to few SS to elicit the answer, that may be: - 'If no one could see you, you would take something without paying for it' - ' if no one saw me, I would take something without paying for it' - 'if no one saw me, i would not take something without paying for it' - 'if nobody sees me, I'd do it' -T will write a answer on the board to elicit the meaning of second conditional through CCQ's - did I do such thing? (no) - is this something real or hypothetical? (hypothetical) - would I do it in the future? (maybe) -T will then elicit the form and write it on the board if + subject + past simple, would + base verb CCQ's - is it about the past? (no) - is it something that could happen now? (yes) - is it something that could happen in the future? (yes) Then T will write the other way of using second conditional on the board,which will be: "I would take something without paying for it if no one saw me" on the board T will show to the SS that it's only the layout of the sentence that have changed Finally T will drill pronunciation stressing and identifying the intonation.
- T will give HO1 and provide the instructions, SS will complete rules with the words in the box in 2 min - at this stage the SS will strengthen their understanding of the meaning and form of second conditional - When they're done, they'll check the answers in pairs and T will elicit the answers
- T will give out the HO2 which is a conversation and ask the SS to look at it to become familiar. - Then T will give the instructions, for them to listen carefully and fill in the blanks - T will ask them to check answers in pairs + elicit the answers - T will then make them listen to the recording again asking them to pay attention on the pronunciation this time especially on the word: would - Once did, T will ask and elicit answers about the intonation of the conversation
- T will introduce the HO3, point to where the hypothetical sentences are and point to where the verbs are - T will then explain that they should read the sentence and fill in the gaps with correct form of verbs in 4 minutes - Once done, T will ask the SS to check their answers in pairs and T will nominate answers from SS.
- T will introduce the HO4 for the speaking activity - T will say here are several questions, when I say so you will stand and ask each other one question 'What would you do if ...' get the answer and move on. - T will say "try to make the answers hypothetical / unreal and fun!" - Then T will point out to the first dilemma and demonstrate. - Then T will give out the HO and ask them to mingle - T will nominate SS to elicit some answers they got and which dilemmas were the most difficult?
