In this ESL lesson about ChatGPT, students watch a video about schools banning the chat. They also learn vocabulary related to cheating and discuss different applications of ChatGPT.
In the first task of this ESL lesson about ChatGPT, students look at some tips and decide what the tips are for. The tips refer to different methods of cheating in exams. Students also briefly discuss their experience with cheating in exams. Then, they read two texts which present two perspectives on technology in education. They need to decide whose perspectives those are. The texts contain vocabulary related to cheating (e.g. be caught red-handed, mislead, plagiarize, integrity). After reading, students choose the correct definitions for the words and phrases in the text. They also finish some statements to present and explain their opinions regarding cheating in exams and punishing students for it.
VIDEO & SPEAKING
Before watching the video, students read a short introduction to ChatGPT and decide if they agree with some statements about using AI software. Then, they watch the video and take notes on three points listed in the task. After viewing, they share their thoughts about banning ChatGPT in schools. Students also read a list of tasks Chat GPT can do and discuss some questions. They need to say what they would use it for and predict how Chat GPT might change the way we work. The teacher can choose to show students ChatGPT and ask them to play around with it a bit. In the final part of this ESL lesson about ChatGPT, students read a case of a teacher who used ChatGPT with her students. There are several questions about the task that students need to answer.
