Main Aims

  • To provide clarification of Model Verb "Would"

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy speaking practice in a controlled, semi controlled, and freer way


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T refers back to the previous lesson and asks the Ss what they think about working for a newspaper. T elicits a few ideas. (3 minutes)

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

The T tells the Ss they are going to find out a bit more about what they think about journalism. The T puts the Ss into pairs and tells them to ask and answer the questions on the questionnaire and takes short notes of their partner's answers. Before they start, the T drills the question "Would you like to be a journalist?". After that the T gives them the Questionnaire. Ss work together to ask and answer the questions and share their ideas about journalism. The T takes some very brief FB. (10 minutes)

Clarification (8-14 minutes) • To clarify the meaning, form and pronunciation of the target language

The T focuses on TL meaning. The T elicits from the Ss what the questions all have in common - WOULD. The T writes on the WB the definitions from the grammar box as headings for 3 columns. The T elicits the meaning of HYPOTHETICAL (uncertain, unreal). The T asks the Ss which meaning the first question from the questionnaire has. Then the T gets the Ss to work in pairs to match the other questions from the questionnaire with their meaning / use. As Ss finish, the T gets them to come to the WB to write their answers in the correct column. The T takes WC FB and checks their answers are right. After that the T focuses on TL form. The T elicits some positive and negative sentences from the questions. The T elicits the difference in the verb forms that come after WOULD LIKE/PREFER/LOVE/HATE and the verb form after WOULD MIND. Also the T makes sure they know what a positive / negative answers to "Would you mind...?" The T focuses on pronunciation. (14 minutes)

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

The T gets Ss to work in pairs/small groups to complete the gaps in ex 2 with the appropriate verb. For FB, Ss can either listen to the Cd (ex-3) or the T makes answer keys (before the lesson) and puts them on the walls for Ss to chek. (8 minutes)

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

The T tells Ss they're going to compare their answers to the questions they answered in the questionnaire (stage 1). The T regroups the Ss into groups of 3 or 4. The T gets them to tell each other about their partner's ideas about journalism and finds out if any Ss had any similar ideas. The T monitors for use of TL. The T doesn't interfere. The T makes notes of any errors. The T takes some general FB on what they found out abut each other or anything they had in common. e.g. Three Ss would like to work in America. Delayed FB (if time) The T puts some of the errors s/he noted earlier onto the WB and gets the Ss to correct them. (10 minutes)
