Procedure (33-45 minutes)
After greeting, (books closed) I will write some sentences on the board: 1- Do you like to drive a car? 2- Did you make a long trip by car? 3- Where did you go? Then, I myself answer the questions and then I want them to talk about their own experiences and answer the questions.
(books open) I read the title of the new unit and elicit the meaning of ''lifetime''. I'd clarify the meaning, if they had any problem. Then, I want them to pay attention to the instruction and I read it loud for them and ask these questions: 1- Who is Dan Grec? 2- Where is he from? 3- What is the blog about? After that, I will read the vocabulary box and elicit camp (if they had problem, I would clarify it by giving an example). Then, I want them to read the text and fill the blanks with the vocabulary and I want them to check the answers with their partners. Moreover, I will play the audio file for them to check the answers.
I ask a question from part (b). I want them to read the text again and pay attention to the highlighted sentences. Additionally, I ask them: Are the highlighted words about present or future? (books closed) I draw a timeline and draw pictures of a person that wants to buy a new car. I explain that in the past he decided to buy a new car, and I draw line to connect the past to the future and say in the future he has a new car. So, he says ''I'm going to buy a new car''. CCQs: 1- Does this sentence (I'm going to buy a new car) talks about future? 2- Is this a plan?
I write ''be going to'' on the board and want them to read sentence number 2. Then, I elicit the structure that it has ''S+to be verb+going to+v''. I ask: our verb is base form here? (yes). I want them to read sentence number 6. Then, I elicit the negative structure ''S+to be verb+not+going to+v''. I want them to read sentence number 8. Then, I elicit the question form ''wh+to be verb+S+going to+v'' In addition, I want them to go to page 114 listen and repeat the sentences. I will explain the to be verb changes based on the subject.
I will explain the practice (a) instruction and want them to do it individually then check the answers with the partner. In the end, we check the answers together. During answering them I will focus on ''future time expressions''.
I will explain the instruction of practice (b). I will read the vocabulary box and they arew supposed to do it like previous activity. During answering them I will focus on ''future time expressions''.
