Procedure (42-52 minutes)
I will write ''2036'' on the board and stick the visuals to the wall,pair the students ask them to come and see each picture and discuss whether it is already happening? is likely to happen? probably won't happen? And then I will elicit some ideas from the WC
I will give the students HO1 and ask them to read it to see if their guesses were similar to the ones in the text and which ones.
I will tell the students to work with their partners to find the actions that will be finished and the actions that will be continuing in the text. Get some answers from the whole class.
I will write a sentence from the text with future progressive, and a sentence from the text with future perfect, I will ask the students what is the difference? Highlight the difference between the two sentences or ask a student who told the difference to draw a timeline to clarify it visually, and elicit the form of the sentences and then drill pronunciation
pair the students and give them HO2 which is a fill in the gaps one and ask them work out the words and the tenses by looking at the text if they need any clues. For feedback, I will give them the answer keys and let them check their answers.
Give the students HO3 in which it is written what time they will be dealing with (tomorrow, next year) and discuss it with their partners
I will group the students and ask them about their predictions for the near and the distant future, both personal predictions and universal ones.
