TP 1 (11 Eylül 2014) - Future Plans / "be going to" vs "present continues for future""
To provide review and practice of "be going to", "simple continuous tense for future" and "will" in the context of tourism and indivudual plans.
To provide accuracy through semi-controlled speaking practice in a conversation in the context of future plans.
Procedure (34-48 minutes)
I will make an introduction by asking them what are they going to do at the weekend. Than I take their attention to the grammar they are using reminding them that this is going to be a grammar lesson and they are going to learn how to talk on their future plans by using “be+going to”, “present continuous for future” and “will”. I’ll also add that they will get familiar with the differences between “be+going to” , “will” and “be+ing” (means present continuous for future).
I’ll ask them questions from the reading text which they can only answer with future tense. If they won’t be able to answer my questions as I have expected, than I will share them a worksheet with which they can match the answers and the questions. Than I’ll get WCFB.
I will write 3 different sentences on board all of which is structured in the future form. I will ask them to discuss on the meanings of the sentences. Then I’ll get answers from them. Then I will make my own explanations. Following my explanation, I will ask them to write at least one sentences about themselves in each different future form.
The students will do ex. 1 in pairs. Once students have rearranged the questions and I have cheched the answers, I will get students in pairs to ask and answer the questions. I will get some quick WCFB on this after the activity.
I will set up ex.3 . I will show the picture of Kadir Topbaş who is the mayor of İstanbul. Then I’ll tell them that they are now in place of Kadir Topbaş and alone. They should think of at least one idea individualy to improve İstanbul for tourists. Then I want them to discuss their ideas in their groups. If I still have more time I will get some WCFB. In this stage, if I hear any problems with the grammar, I will certainly correct .
