Warmer/Lead-in (5-7 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

This is a lesson building on the previous one. Exposure has already been made. This section will focus on highlighting. Give Ss the script of the listening done in the previous lesson. Ask Ss to read the text individually and underline the future forms. Peer check. WC feedback.

Clarification (7-10 minutes) • To introduce future forms and prepare the class for controlled and freer practices

Give the Ss a matching exercise with the hand outs. Ask them to work in pairs to make the correct matching. Ask for WC feedback. Make corrections if needed. Project the correct matching. Go into the details of +will, be going to and present progressive forms. Write them on white board by eliciting from the Ss. Also elicit negative and question forms.

Controlled practice (7-10 minutes) • To get students practicing the forms learnt

Give Ss handouts and ask them to work and find the correct answers in pairs. Ask them to come to the board and show correct answers. Get WC feedback. Make error corrections if needed.

Freer practice (17-20 minutes) • To provide an opportunity to practice target productive skills

Project the objectives of the exercise. Divide the class to groups of 3. Give clear instructions. Ask the Ss to build a dialogue based on the instructions and the language learnt. Ask each group to come to the stage and present the dialogue they prepared. Get WC feedback. Make error corrections at the end.

Feedback (3-5 minutes) • To provide feedback on students' production and use of language

Have an informal chat with WC. Ask them to tell the WC about their weekend plans using the language learnt. Give feedback and make error corrections if needed.
