To provide fluency speaking practice in a discussion in the context of the future.
Procedure (34-45 minutes)
In groups, students brainstorm the following questions: - What are you going to do at the weekend/ next year/ in 10 years?
Teacher hands out the Reading task. Students read the text one time for gist. Then they answer the question 'What are the king and his helpers doing?'. Afterwards, the students read the text one more time for detail and then in pairs underline the future forms. The teacher monitors the process and gives feedback at the end.
Teacher gives the students a worksheet. They have to connect the usages of will/be going to/ present continuous for the future to the forms. Afterwards, students check in pairs. A feedback follows.
With the help of the PowerPoint presentation the teacher shows examples of the usage of the future tenses. The goal is to elicit the forms of future with will/going to and present continuous tense for the future and as much of the cases, in which they are used, as possible.
To practice what they have learned students to the grammar exercise. A peer check follows. Afterwards, the teacher gives a feedback.
Students go back to the question from the Lead-in stage. In pairs they answer them again but this time they have to use the correct future forms and to us as many as possible. The teacher monitors the process, takes notes and finishes the lesson with a feedback.
