Procedure (42-54 minutes)
Sts work on a worksheet related to the grammar lesson. In the worksheet they read about some mistakes in the past. At first they find the mistakes and write them down. Then they go to the second part of the worksheet and match what was the right thing to do in exercise 1 for each action.
books open, we read and review a news story which we read last session. It gives a good context for the target language. it's about an accident for a group teenagers. We find their mistakes together. Then sts go the next page and do exercise 4. In this exercise sts have to find and write sentences with should have or shouldn't have from the text.
Elicitation I ask student which sentences criticize people's actions in the past. Then I ask them what words are common in all of these sentences.
When I elicit the answers from sts, we conclude the grammar usage of should/shouldn't have. Then with the help of sts we analyze the structure of should/shouldn't have sentences when we want to criticize someone's action in the past.
