Procedure (45 minutes)
First of all the teacher greets the students. Then, the teacher wants to take the interest of the students to the lesson. The teacher writes questions on the board: "What would you like to do if you travelled to America? If you go to America, would you like to see Las Vegas or New York? Why?, " Then the teacher says "Now, you are going to work in pairs and tell your friends your toughts". The teach shows the pairs and says "You have 5 minutes".
The teacher opens the projector and shows examples about "if, unless, providing, as long as and even if". The teacher shows questions about these conjunctions and shows the meanings and few differences about them. For example "even if" means that although something happens or may be true, another situations remains the same. Although the students know "if" clause, they may not understand the meaning "unless". So the teacher shows the meaning : "unless" means the same meaning as "if not. And, although we generally use "as long as" instead of "if", it is a conditional clause that is used in a process. The teacher also gives the examples in a hand-out so in the other stages they can use it as a map.
The teacher shows the hand out and gives discriptions: "Now look at this page, I am going to give this page to you and you are going to choose the correct option to complete the sentences and circle the correct answer individually. You have 3 minutes.." After they finish T asks them to check their answers with their partners. Then you are going to check your answers with your partners ".
The teacher checks the answers with the students and clarifies the mistakes. If the students need an explanation, the teacher gives CCQs or tries to explain.
In this stage there will be matching activity. The T divided the class in the groups of there. The teacher says " now I'm going to give you some papers and want you to put them in the correct order with your friends in your group. After they finish answering the questions, the teacher checks the answers together and writes them on the board.
At this stage, T writes the questions on the board. T asks to the students to write answers to these question "what would you do if you were a president in this country?" or "What would you do if you were a manager in a private school?" After they finish writing the teacher says "stand up and walk around the classroom and tell him/her what you think about answers."
