Main Aims

  • To provide clarification and practice of prediction words in the context of space tours

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide accuracy speaking practice in a survey and a presentation in the context of space tours and future predictions


Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and generate students' interest in the rule

I will write 3 sentences on the board. Students then guess the percentage of probability for each sentence depending on being sure of the information or not. - I am a teacher. % - I like Dolma. % - I will in Istanbul. % I will present and drill the flash cards which include the prediction words and Ss will choose the correct form to match their percentage.

Exposure (5-7 minutes) • To provide context for the target language through a text or situation

I will draw an arrow on the board. Students work in groups of 3 to place the words in an cline on the arrow. I will correct the cline on the board and their answers accordingly.

Highlighting (5-7 minutes) • To draw students' attention to the target language

I will write the word "will" on the boars and students will guess through gestures that we will talk about the future. I will write couple of examples on the board and ask students to chose the correct sentence form. By that they will deduce the form of the "degrees-of-possibility" words. Ss try to give me examples after that

Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check and prepare students for more meaningful practice

Ss put the words in brackets into the correct place in the sentences HO#1 Then discuss in groups. I will ask for examples and clarifications.

Semi-Controlled Practice (8-10 minutes) • To concept check further and prepare students for free practice

I will divide the Ss into groups of 5, and assign each one a question in HO#2. They walk around the class and ask the questions to the rest of the class. They go back to tell the rest of the students in their groups about their results.

Free Practice (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with free practice of the target language

I will ask students if they think of themselves as good candidates for a space tour. They take time to think of the possibilities then discuss the answers in pairs. HO#3 (In case of EXTRA TIME) Students should write 5 sentences predicting the life of their partner.
