Procedure (30-41 minutes)
Teacher gets some ideas from the students about fate and chance. If they don't know the meaning, T gives the meaning. Then teacher asks Ss if they believe in fate or not.
T hands out necessary materials and Ss read the summary shortly. Then they listen to the audio and circle the correct words in the summary. T points out that Ss need to listen again, but this time to find phrases of agreements and disagreements in the audio. T takes some FB to see if the Ss could catch them. T drills these statements if necessary.
Teacher takes everybody standing up and then randomly matches everybody in pairs. T writes on board "Do things happen for a reason?" Ss talk about it.
Teacher divides the class into 2 groups and marks them as A's and B's.T hands out the introduction to both of the groups, and then Han's story to Group A and Maggie's story to Group B. Students read the texts and discuss the answers in groups and how they could retell the story. Teacher then matches each A with a B and asks them to tell each other their stories and to talk about what they think about each other's story.
T hands out the exercise. Ss match the expressions of possibility and match their meanings. Ss discuss their answers with their partner.
T hands out the exercise and asks students to choose two topics and write sentences using the expressions of possibility from the previous exercise. T gives an example: "There's no chance that Marsel İlhan will win the match tomorrow." Then Ss swap partners and compare their ideas.
