Instant Responses: Will and Shall
To provide practice of will and shall used for instant responses in the context of conversations
To provide gist listening practice using a text about making decisions
Procedure (39-60 minutes)
The students will be given their first handouts containing a listening activity and 3 grammar exercises. The teacher focuses SS' attention on the pictures of the listening activity and encourage them to guess what might be going on in each picture in pairs.
SS will have a discussion about the pictures in pairs and share their ideas with the rest of the class and we'll talk about them together to make sure they are engaged with the topic. Then they will listen to the audio and try to decide what each person wants to do in the pictures.
Students choose the correct answer in exercise 2 individually and discuss their answers in pairs. Then they'll listen to the audio again to check their answers and I will have one of them to write the answers on the board.
SS will continue with the Grammar box on the same handouts. In exercise 1a they're expected to find 2 examples of offers and two examples of suggestions from the previous exercise. They'll discuss their answers in pairs and share them with the rest of the class.
Students will be given another handout containing 4 different situations.(Cutting Edge Third Edition, Intermediate Student's Book page 127.) All situations have 3 possible answers and students are expected to choose one of their own and tell which response they'd give and why. They'll work in pairs.
The teacher asks students to create their own conversations by which they can practice using will and shall for instant responses. Then, volunteers can come and act out their dialogue. Teacher monitors and gives feedback.
