Procedure (45-45 minutes)
I will propose the questions - How do you think the world of work will change in the next ten or twenty years? - What will be professions that'll have a bigger market or take more precedence in the future? How about anything completely new? - in order to set up the lesson about future tenses.
I'll provide an audio that we'll listen to together off of my device. This is an audio of 4:34, so there will likely only be opportunity to play it once. I will want to take two minutes to get short feedback from the students on things they noticed or weren't sure of, before moving into the MFPA portion of the lesson.
I will present a Slides form to clarify the MFPA of the target language. There will be images to clarify these different professions but a focus on future tense grammar.
I will present a controlled practice using Google Forms where students will match the correct tense in several sentences. Depending on logistics, I will send them to breakout rooms to give more privacy / opportunity to discover the language on their own. After brief feedback and a check on the answers, they will have a brief free practice where they'll be instructed to write their own stories about what the future of *a* profession will be like.
There will be time to use the Zoom Whiteboard to provide Delayed Error Correction as well as responses to their Free Practice content.
