The Subjunctive Mood English Grammar Lesson


In this lesson pupils work with a partner to make some brief notes about The Subjunctive Mood. Ideally, pupils should make a note of only the essential aspects of this topic – say 5-6 main points (with examples). These notes are important because they will be used as a basis for peer teaching and making a video on this topic in part 2. 

This lesson has been written to enable to enable pupils to teach themselves without teacher input because each page has been carefully designed to nudge pupils’ learning forward. 



There are eight key evidence-based learning (EBL) skills that have been proven by research to work. The aim of these grammar lessons is to teach a range of grammar topics while developing two of these key EBL skills: collaborative learning and peer teaching. There are three parts to this topic that will fully develop these EBL skills:

Part 1: The Grammar Lesson – Collaboration

Pupils will work collaboratively in a pair to write brief notes about the grammar topic in this lesson.

Part 2: Creating an ‘Expert’ Group – Peer Teaching

One pair will now work with another pair to teach what they know about the topic to each other – this will develop collaborative learning and peer teaching skills. In addition, a group of four ‘experts’ on this grammar topic has now been created.

Part 3: Individual Q & A – Self-Assessment

The expert group of four will now make a short video on the grammar topic and present their video to the rest of the class.
