Procedure

Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

The students will watch a short video about the world in 2050 before they watch the video I ask them to look for the answer to these two questions while they are watching: What inventions or developments does the video show? How do you think they can benefit people? They will talk together after the video and share their ideas and for feedback, I will ask pairs for their ideas.

Pre-Reading (10-12 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

I will show them 3 pictures. I want them to guess what it is written under each picture which are the main themes that are covered in the text, then I give them time to think and talk about the themes together and for feedback, the pairs will share their ideas with the class Vertical farming: used for growing crops when there's no ground space or farm especially in a crowded city brain implants: will allow full immersion into video games and movies a 3D printer: will be able to produce three-dimensional copies of things such as organs for people who need them.

While-Reading (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading task

students will read the text in 5mins alone and after that in their pairs, they talk about the predictions the text made about translating machines and nano monitors. For feedback, there are four pictures on the screen and I elicit the words and want them to talk about what it is said in the text,

While-Reading (14-16 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

The students will read the text again and they try to answer exB. which is a short summary of the text. First, they will do it individually then pair check and for feedback, they come to the board and will write the answers.

speaking fluency (8-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

students will pair up and discuss these questions one by one and whole class feedback: 1. Which ideas in the article do you like? Can you think of other uses for these inventions? 2. Which ideas don’t you like? Why not? 3. Which ideas do you agree will probably come true?
