T hangs the pictures related to the three books/movies mentioned in the text before the lesson starts T groups students by counting to 3. T gives the instructions: "Walk around the classroom, look at the pictures and in groups discuss what those pictures represent. Everytime I clap my hand, you will change groups clockwise." After the sts come up with some ideas, one student from each group will share the ideas they discussed. T asks "Do you think these scenes are from the past or future?"
T gives the HO1 (Future statements about novels), gives sts 2 minutes to read these statements with their partner. T gives HO2 (reading text) Sts read for specific information and decide which statement is from which book and fill the HO1 T gives the answer key. T gives the answer key and Sts check in pairs
T will pair the Ss. T will chest a HO T will ask the Ss to look at the highlighted verbs in the prediction from the reading. T will ask Ss to decide whether they refer to an action or situation that will be finished or still in progress in the future and categorize them in a table. T will ask Ss to check their answers with their partners. T will elicit some answers from the Ss then provide them with answer key.
Ss will undertake a guided discovery task to focus on the meaning and the form of the simple future T will put Ss in groups of 3 T will show Ss the guided discovery (HO4) Sts will fold the paper and they will focus on the meaning first T tells Ss that they are going to look at two examples and groups will discuss and fill the gaps T will monitor very carefully and might have to do some micro-teaching to help students who are finding difficulties. (4 min) T will tell Ss to check with their groups. T will get feedback and provide answers. After Ss finishes working on the meaning section, T will tell them to unfold the paper to answer the "form" section (2 mins). T will keep monitoring carefully to see if Ss are able to understand the TL. Sts will check their answers with their groups. T will get feedback and provide Ss with answer key. T will deal with the Pronunciation after meaning and form by boarding the sentences. a) “Most people will use solar panels by 2038”. In this sentence T will highlight the pronunciation"They'll" by using finger technique. b) “Most people won't be able to find clean water in 2038.
