Hypothetical situations in the present
To provide practice and review of hypothetical situations in the present
To provide detailed reading practice using a text about the threat from climate change
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a conversation
Procedure (32-45 minutes)
Present students with an image of a genie, and explain that they have in their power a genie lamp which will grant them three wishes. Elicit from a few students what their wishes would be.
Present students with a text where a man describes what his life would be like if he had a job. Give students sufficient time to read for detail and elicit from them their idea of what the text is about.
In BORs, have students identify three hypothetical situations which were mentioned by Lucy in the text.
Have students unscramble the correct order for the target language. Present students with the grammar structures of the second conditional and possible answers for these types of questions after the activity is completed. Show the correct answers on screen afterward.
In BORs, students must convert a set of sentences into the second conditional. Example, I can only buy a Ferrari with a lottery prize. If I won the lottery, I could buy a Ferrari.
Prompt students with a small list of aspects of their lives, ask them to think about one thing they would like to change about it and have them share their answers in BORs. If there is enough time, go into DEC with the mistakes compiled during monitoring.
