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.
This ESL lesson about ChatGPT also includes an additional task to practise reflexive pronouns that you can use as homework or revision. It’s available in the teacher’s version of the worksheet. You can print it, cut it up and hand it out to your students. It’s also included in the e-lesson plan, if you teach online.

Yay! I have been waiting for this topic :). Will see how it goes in the classroom. Thank you!
So great to see a lesson on this thank you! I’m from the UK and I’ve never heard the expression ‘cop to (doing) something’ before. We’d more likely say ‘own up to (doing) something’. Where does the writer of this lesson come from? Is it a regional expression? Or US English? It would be helpful to let students know! Thanks, Anna
Hi Anna! Thank you so much for your comment 🙂 This phrase does come from US English and one of the reasons we decided to focus students’ attention on it is that it’s used in the video [00:53].
Great lesson! More like this one, please!
Thank you for your feedback, Veronica! We’re happy you liked this lesson. We would appreciate it if you specified what exactly you mean by “like this one” so we can take your ideas into consideration 🙂
I have the same suggestions. Current topics related to AI or other fields are quite interesting for students to learn. Thanks
Thank you, Nancy!
Great lesson, very topical!
