To provide clarification and practice of the past simple, continuous and perfect tenses in the context of cheating
To provide gist, scan and detailed reading practice using a text about if you really want to win, cheat in the context of famous cheating moments in sport
Procedure (22-35 minutes)
I will use a video which shows a boy cheating while playing football and and actually everyone believes him. This video will let them be involved in the context of the lesson and make them unconsciously think of their previous experiences with it whether it is related to them or to someone they know or even do not know. there will be thee questions on the board left for them to think of while watching the video and they are: 1) Did the boy laying on the ground fall in purpose? yes 2) was the penalty his team had fair? why or why not? No, because he cheated 3) do you agree with what he did? why or why not?
First, I will present them the first box about soccer with three highlighted verbs and ask them to identify their tenses. Second, there will be another question asking about the uses of the three tenses to test their memory and what they really know and what they do not remember that much. If they cannot answer all of them, then it is great that they answered some and that will help me go on with my lesson smoothly.
They will read the whole passage for gist for 20 seconds and afterwards they will discuss ,the feeling, ideas, thoughts and memories they have gone through while reading, for a minute to exchange their ideas and then share them with me for a minute.
The students will start reading for about 3 minutes to identify how the other two players cheated. After that, they will check together for a minute and then share their answers with me for thirty seconds. Afterwards, I will start the stage of pronunciation where they repeat the sentences after me and then after checking their pronunciation, I will move to the sentences formation and then to their uses which are clarified in the lesson, and that need to be clarified so that they can achieve the aims meant for the lesson to be achieved.
It will be a free activity where I will just ask them to discuss with one another in pairs about cheating and whether they know someone cheated and went away with it or not. And of course, if any feedback is needed, it will be provided.
