To provide clarification and practice of prediction words in the context of space tours
To provide accuracy speaking practice in a survey and a presentation in the context of space tours and future predictions
Procedure (37-49 minutes)
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
