Students will learn about past simple, past continuous, past perfect in terms of meaning and form.
To provide gist and detailed reading practice using a text about cheating in the context of sports
To provide accuracy speaking practice in an anecdote in the context of sports
Procedure (34-47 minutes)
I will ask questions regarding cheating in sports like: Which sports you do? Did you cheat in sports? In what sports do you think cheating is most common? In Turkish Football League do they cheat often? What kind of things do people do when they cheat?
The students will read the text about a marathon and find out who cheated and how. Give instructions. Elicit words they don't know. (To take a short cut, to sweat, spectator) When they're finished they will check their answers.
Students will read the text again and analyze the verbs highlighted to determine when the action took place. In pairs, they will place the story on a timeline. They will receive feedback on time line.
Students will read a text on a famous cheating incident happened in the quarter-finals of the 1986 World Cup. Then they will fill in the gaps with correct form of the verb with their pairs. They will get written feedback.
Students will think of a time when they have cheated in a sport/game/exam. They will plan what they're going to say. (5 min) By using what they have learned they will tell their story to their friend. (2 x 2min) I will nominate one or two students to share their story with the whole class. (2 x 2 min)
