DIDACTIC UNIT 4ºESO: Introducing conditionals 0, 1 and 2. ALEKSANDRA JANIK FERNANDO LATORRE ÁNGELA LLORCA ALEJANDRO MENDIVEMARÍA DE LOS ÁNGELES ROCA
General aspects LEVEL: 4º ESO TYPE OF SCHOOL: State school TIME DISTRIBUTION: 3 sessions of one hour Regarding the organisation of the sessions, we have considered useful to firstly provide the students with real examples of English, in order to make them deduce what new features of the language arehappening. Afterwards, when the students are aware of them and have used them with some exercises, theory will be explained to them. We believe in adeductive way of learning, rather than explaining cold grammar from the very beginning.
Session 1 1.- Text on 0 and 1st conditionals (15’) Students should underline the conditional sentences and then compare them with a fellow student. 2.- Grammar explanation (10’) In a dynamic and deductive way. 3.- Multiple choice exercise (15’) Students should be able to link two phrases of a sentence in order to make them make sense 4.- “Complete the sentence” exercise (10’) This exercise is useful to reinforce and to settle down the new information.
Session 2 1.- Speaking about “The Fiddler on the Roof” (7’) Students will be asked some questions about him and they will provide answers in groups of 4 students. 2.- Video-listening (15’) The song of “The Fiddler…”. They will be asked some questions about the content of the song. 3.- Grammar explanation (10’) In a dynamic and deductive way. 4.- Listening: “If I were a boy” – Beyoncé (10’) Fill in the gaps exercise. 5.- Writing and singing (13’) In groups of 4 boys or 4 girls, they try to create new lyrics for an specific part of the song. They try to write something about the other sex, not in an offensive way at all. Something good or funny.
Session 3 1.- Warm-up activity (15’) In groups of 4 students, they will try to establish the grammatical rules of the conditionals. They will write three sentence each and put them in common out loud. 2.- Grammar (written and spoken) practice (20’) With games. 3.- Test (15’) This is not a final exam, just a test to check if the students have learnt the conditionals.
