Assessment TP 1
Upper-Intermediate, B2 level
In this lesson students will review and extend the awareness of future forms - will, going to, present continuous and present simple - and give controlled practice in them in the context of optimism.
The Sub Aim is to give Ss practice in listening for gist, specific information and detail.
Procedure (36-48 minutes)
I will get the students' attention by giving them example about "me" how optimistic I was, in my pregnancy, about my new baby I will introduce Ss to the topic that they will be listening to 5 people talking about what they are optimistic about.
before listening I will give Ss vocabulary sheet to make sure Ss are in familiar with some vocabulary in the listening part. I will explain the new vocab, match them with the examples. They need to get the meaning from the context.
I will make clear that in this exercise Ss need to be figuring out if each person sounds pessimistic, optimistic about their personal future or optimistic about a global issue. Then have Ss listen
In order to get the answers, I will pause after each speaker, have Ss work in GW to answer ex 1. and true or false in ex 2. at the same time with TCQ.
I will ask Ss how many ways are there to refer to future tense? After interaction with Ss I will write down the 4 forms of the future on board. I prepared the rules and cut them up, therefore Ss need to match the slips of rules on board. Next step, I will remove the name of the forms keeping the rules on board and asking them to match some examples that suit each rule.
In this stage Ss will be giving their own example of at least 2 forms of future. Instead of saying each one's example, I prefer to have Ss say their partner's example for the benefit of using the subject he or she instead of I.
