  • 1. Wednesday July 20, 2011 Hubbs Center - ELL 7 Agenda and Objectives
  • 2. Objectives• We will write a 3-5 sentence summary of Act 3, Scene 1 and will practice synonyms and antonyms from Act 2.• We will discuss and practice the subjunctive mood.• We will review the reading strategy called monitoring and clarifying.• We will continue reading Act 3.• We will write our own comprehension questions for Act 3, Scene 2.
  • 3. Write a Summary: Act 3, Scene 1• What does a summary need?  3 to 5 sentences  main characters in the scene  main idea of the scene: what was the most important thing that happened?  the setting of the scene• After you write your summary, make a prediction about Act 3, Scene 2. What do you think will happen in Scene 2?• Then, work on the synonyms/antonyms handout from Act 2 (yesterday).
  • 4. “If only I were a glove on that hand...”Subjunctive Mood:• This is a verb form used when talking about wishful, unreal, uncertain, imaginary, improbable, impossible, or untrue situations.• Subjunctive mood has all three tenses but only two are still used in modern English: the present and the past. Subjunctive Past I were You were He were She were It were
  • 5. Examples of Subjunctive• If I were you, I would stop bugging your teacher.  Impossible: I cant be you• If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would split it with you.  Improbable: It is unlikely that I will win.• I wish I were home in bed.• I wish I talked to her earlier.  Wishful and Untrue: I am not home in bed. I didnt talk to her.
  • 6. “If only I were a glove on that hand...”• The subjunctive were (or sometimes was) after the word “if” (and other words with similar meaning). Look at these sentences: * If I were you, I would ask her. If I were If he I wish I * Suppose she were here. What would you say? younger, weren’t weren’tWhy do we say "I were", "he were"? I would so mean, so slow!We sometimes hear things like "if I were you, I go. he would would go" or "if he were here, he would tell you". Normally, the past tense of the verb "to buy one be" is: I was, he was. But the if I were you structure does not use the past simple tense of for me. the verb "to be". It uses the past subjunctive of the verb "to be". In the following examples, She acts If I were I wish you can see that we often use the subjunctive form were instead of "was" after: as if she you, I the * if were would movie * as if Queen! tell her. were * wish * suppose longer.
  • 7. Let’s Brainstorm a List of Subjunctives!• If I were you, I would...• If I won the lottery, I would...•
  • 8. Subjunctive Round Table Discussion• Working in groups of 3 or 4, you will each take a turn to choose a question out of a bag.• Read the question to the group. Give everyone a chance to answer. You can answer the question, too!• At the end, everyone will write a question using the subjunctive mood.
