Language Resident Name: Eloise Raoul
Day and Date: 04/05/2019
Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): Advanced
Class theme/topics discussed: The future
Goal of the class: To review the future tense
How did you structure the class?
1) 5 minutes: Warm Up & questions
– I ask to each of them how is their week going, I introduce the topic: the future.
2) 15 minutes: Video – Norman – The 30 years crisis
-I introduce Norman – I ask them questions to make sure they understood the video.
3) 30 minutes: The tarot card activity
-Played by groups of two, one plays the psychic, the other plays the customer. They have fake tarot cards that I printed. We do a quick reminder about the future tense before the activity. The main goal of the activity is for them to have fun while reviewing the future tense. Each person have to tell their partners’s future and then they switch.
4) 10 minutes : “Horoscope Activity” reality vs horoscope
-They tell me which sign they are and I give them their horoscope of the week. They have to discuss with a partner in the class if they think it is possible that the things in their horoscope happen or not. Then we discuss all together.
