Warmer (3-4 minutes) • Introduce the topic of Environment

I will have the word, "Eco-Guilty" on the board and ask students what they think it means. Then I will have the students read the short text and ask them how eco-guilty do you think you are? After, I will put up my questionnaire on the overhead projector (this will be a model for them) and have them fill out their own to figure out how eco-guilty they really are.

Lead-in (4-6 minutes) • Setting the context

I will ask students to think about how people will live in the next 20 years. They will think about this question for less than a minute with a partner. Then I will put the students in groups. Depending the variety of the answers they got for the questionnaire, I will use "very guilty, should feel guilty, or too good to be true." If everyone received below 0 for the questionnaire i will not be able to use this technique. I will then ask the students to read the text about a predictions that have been made about the next 20 years and think of which ones are already happening, are likely to happen an probably wont happen. They will work on this within their groups/pairs (depending on the number of students). I will ask the students who thinks what and why. This part should take no more than 3-4 minutes. Afterwards, I will have the students get into two groups. I will have two charts set up on the walls. I will ask the students to look at the highlighted verbs in the predictions, and ask them which ones refer to a.) an action or situation that will be finished in the future, b.) an action or situation that will be in progress in the future. They will receive the verbs in cut-up slip and will have to put it in the right section on the wall. We will come back to this activity later on in the lesson to check our correct answers.
