1. Topic-
The Second Conditional
2. Content-
Unreal/imagined situations
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
Students will learn how and when to use the second conditional
4. Objectives-
Students will show their understanding of the second conditional by:

a)imagining unreal/improbable situations and their responses to those situations

b)identifying the difference between real and unreal situations

5. Materials and Aids-
Worksheets, Computer (for music examples)
6. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

1. Open the lesson by using the first conditional - Start off by discussing what students would do if they finished school/work early, if they had more free time, etc.

2. Lead into a discussion of unreal/less probable situations; e.g. What they would do if they won the lottery, if they had super powers, etc.

B. Development-

1. Explain that these types of situations are called conditionals and explain when to use them
2.Show that the first scenarios are called the first conditional because they are situations that can easily happen while the others are less likely/will never happen and are called the second conditional
3. Diagram how conditionals are formed:
If + past simple + would + verb

C. Practice-

1.Listen to song(s)/watch music videos "If I Were a Boy" by Beyonce and/or 'If I Had a Million Dollars" by Bare Naked Ladies
2. Have them listen to the song again and have them do a word fill worksheet
3. Go over the lyrics and discuss what the song is talking about

D. Independent Practice-

1.Controlled practice - worksheet with verbs in parentheses
2. Free practice - Complete the sentences w/ own idea
3. Have students ask each other questions using the second conditional

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

1. Possibly include grammar chants of second conditional

2. Reiterate differences between first and second conditional to develop clearer understanding

F. Checking for understanding-

1. Ask students to answer questions out loud
2.Have them give their own examples of second conditional
3. Ask for examples of first and second conditional

G. Closure-

1.Ask for any questions/if students need any further explanations
2. Assign homework: another conditional worksheet
7. Evaluation-
1. See how well each student is doing
2.Monitor students
