This is a really memorable, creative lesson I designed for my FCE teen class as a fun way of reworking the classic B2 tense review. They loved the context and the creativity, as well as the explicit grammar and pronunciation focus through the lens of TV drama.
Level: B2 (Upper-Intermediate)
Time: 90-120 minutes, depending on the size of your class
Materials: 1 worksheet per student (comment for files)
By the end of the lesson, students will have written and performed a short dialogue in the style of TV courtroom dramas.
Students will also have reviewed the meaning, form and pronunciation of past and present tenses in the context of eyewitness testimony.
