Role-Play

Age: Older Teens & Adults

Since the song “HAZARD” is about a crime, it also allows students to engage into a role-play, in which (arranged in two groups and after watching the video of the song) they collect and present evidence that proves the man is innocent or guilty of the crime. In the end, they present their evidence to the judge (who happens to be the teacher), who will announce a verdict.

The song “RUDE” doesn´t have the First Conditional but can be used for that purpose, so you can show students the slide with the lyrics but you don´t necessarily need photocopies (unless they insist on having them). The activity is supposed to be assigned after students have practiced the structure long enough, so that they perform the task well (remember it´s supposed to be a wrap-up activity). The goal is a speaking/writing task using the structure. First, they are supposed to respond to a question that happens to be in the lyrics. Then, they listen to the song and check what the response in the lyrics is. After that,  they role-play a situation proposed by the teacher and finally, they write sentences using the structure learned.
