Today we shall discuss the topic “Nothing but the truth”. (Presentation of the lesson plan and epigraph). To start with, let us have a short conversation. Please, form two circles so that each of you is facing your partner. (Students make two circles). Now, please, speak on the topics I will read to you. You will have 30 seconds to speak on each topic, so don‟t think long, try to react and start talking as quickly as you can. Shall we begin? Topics: 1. Roses are better than potatoes. 2. If I were a vegetarian, I would… 3. Our health depends on… 4. If my friend smoked, I would... 5. It is important that we should always tell the truth. 2 6. If only we could read other people‟s minds! 2. Brainstorm: homework check. Teacher: Thank you very much for your active participation. Now, I would ask you to write at least 2 reasons why people lie (as you remember, I asked you to think about the reasons at home). Please, pass your reasons to one student in your row so that we can compare them later. You have 2 minutes. 3. Listening and discussion. Teacher: Let‟s sum up you reasons, please. (The students chosen to do it read the most typical reasons that have been written by others). And now, will you look at the pictures I am going to show you, listen to the lies and give possible reasons for why people are lying in the given situations. (Slides are presented on a computer screen). Now, listen to how those people justify their lies (See Appendix 1). 4. Quiz (jigsaw reading and discussion). Teacher: I will give you some texts with incomplete information. After you have read the text, try to obtain the information you lack from your partner. My special recommendation for you would be to use the conditionals. For example, you can ask an indirect question, such as “I wish I knew who painted the picture Guernica in 1937”. 5. Pair work (skimming and finding the contradictions in the text). Teacher: Of course, we cannot always tell the truth, yet it is a good practice to try to be truthful as much as you can. In the following text, the author has made a lot of untrue statements on purpose. Your task is to find those contradictions. We shall work in pairs: one person writes down the true statements, and the other tries to find the false information. Then, we shall compare our findings. Let us start (Students read a story “Vegetarians don‟t eat meat” – See Appendix 2). 6. Discussion of proverbs that contradict. Teacher: I have some more contradictions for you. They are in the form of proverbs. Let us read, discuss and compare the following proverbs: 3 Proverbs Which Contradict All good things come to those who BUT Time and tide wait for no man wait Birds of a feather flock together BUT Opposites attract Absence makes the heart grow BUT Out of sight, Out of mind fonder Never judge a book by its Clothes make the man BUT cover Don't cross your bridges before BUT Forewarned is forearmed you come to them Good things come in small BUT The bigger the better packages Great starts make great finishes BUT It ain't over 'till it's over He who hesitates is lost BUT Act in haste, Repent at leisure All work and no play makes Practice makes perfect BUT Jack a dull boy The squeaky wheel gets the Silence is golden BUT grease The pen is mightier than the Actions speak louder than BUT sword words You can't teach an old dog new You're never too old to learn BUT tricks What's good for the goose is good One man's meat is another BUT for the gander man's poison Wise men think alike BUT Fools seldom differ 4 6. Group work. Relaxation. Teacher: Now, I think you have worked well today. So, you deserve some fun. First, let me read you a joke about lies (just be sure not to take it personally, girls, ok?). Joke There are 3 people standing in front of a magic mirror. The mirror gives you anything you desire if you tell it the truth, but you disappear if you lie. The first person to talk to the mirror was a very fat brunette. She walked up to the mirror and said "I think I am the thinnest person in the world." and poof, the mirror gobbled her up. The next person to come up to the mirror was a very ugly red head. She told the mirror "I think I am the prettiest person in the world" and poof, the mirror gobbled her up. Lastly came the blonde. She walked up to the mirror and said "I think..." and poof, the mirror gobbled her up. Teacher: To have some more fun and to review our conditionals, I suggest that we play a board game. Please, form groups of 4 or 5 students and take your boards. You know the rules, don‟t you? Just roll the dice, move your pieces and answer correctly using the right conditional (zero, first, second or third). Good luck, and may the best one win! Conditionals Board Game The first column are all zero conditionals, the second column first conditionals and the third column are all second conditionals. Cut up and divide into three piles. Examples: What do you do if you have a headache? What would you do if you won the lottery? if you have a if you could buy if you have a headache any car in the headache tomorrow world if it rains this if you could meet if you can't sleep weekend any person in the 5 world if you saw an ex- if you are invited to if you heat ice partner in the the cinema tonight street if you had the if you don't chance to play any if you drop an egg understand this sport for your lesson national team if there is a if you spoke if you get a cold karaoke evening at English better than the school your teacher if you want to if you see your if you were the sneeze at the teacher in town leader of your cinema tomorrow country if you don't want to if lessons are if you found the eat something at a cancelled next winning lottery formal dinner week ticket on the bus if you could if you oversleep if you oversleep become a teacher tomorrow for any subject if you can't if you could play remember if you are asked to any musical someone's name organise a party instrument in the when you are this Saturday world talking to him/her if you forgot your if someone forgets if your teacher is mother's/father's your birthday sleeping now! birthday if there is a stray if you call the if you had the dog outside your wrong number on chance to appear house/apartment the phone on a TV chat show tonight 6 START 1 3 zero 2 third 4 second third 5 first 13 FINISH 6 second 7 zero 12 second third 11 8 first first 10 9 second third 7 7. Evaluation. Home task setting. Teacher: Thank you very much for your active participation. I‟d like to give all of you good and excellent marks. What did you enjoy most during the lesson? What did you like least? Would you like to play more board games? Your home task will be to do a research on how we can lie or refuse to do something politely, without hurting anyone‟s feelings. Think of your own examples and experiences and make up either short dialogues or monologues.
