Teach (10-15 minutes) • To clarify areas of the target language where students had difficulty in the first test stage

After the test#1, t will see if the sts have difficulty. If there is, then students will circle the answers where they have difficulty. Later, they will have another HO which has the same six sentences from the dialogue. In this part, sts will match the sentences to their uses. Thus, they will be able to see when sts need to use the futures review. Before giving the HO, t will give the instruction: Match the examples a-f to their uses 1-6. ICQs: Are you going to work in pairs? (Yes) How many minutes do you have? (3 minutes) After matching, t will see if there is still confusion or not. If there is, t will ask some CCQs (see language analysis) in order to differentiate the uses of futures review. If not, then t will chek the form and pronunciation. For the form, t will project the model sentences and ask the sts what the form is (for each sentence)? After going to, what do we use (base form verb or V+ing)? After will, what do we use (base form verb or V+ing)? After am/is/are in present continuous, what do we use (base form verb or V+ing)? what is the form of present simple tense?
