T shows a picture by using OHP to remind Ss of the TL. Then T asks a few CQs to consolidate the same meanings of modal verbs; Can a robot hurt a person?No. Does it have to obey the orders?Yes. Does it have to protect itself?Yes.
T gives instructions "Choose what they mean?" Then T gives HO to Ss. T wants Ss to work individually. After Ss finish doing the exercise, T wants them to check their answers in pairs and after that T wants Ss to check their answers from the answer key.
T gives the Form HO and shows Ss the form of the TL on the WB by using OHP.
By using the same sentences in the Form HO as examples and using OHP, T does drilling with Ss.
T gives instructions ; "There are two options, choose the best answer according to the meaning. Work individually." and hands HOs over to Ss. After Ss finish doing the exercise, T wants them to check their answers in pairs and later by using OHP T provides FB.
T wants Ss to read the text individually and work as a group of 3 to answer those two questions. T wants them to write possible problems with a domestic robot and make a rule list for their imaginary domestic robot. After that T wants Ss to stand up and check other groups' lists and possible problems.
