Future Time Reference
*Note on Workbook: The suggested split up of the units of the Workbook reflects a distribution for the purpose of classroom teaching only. Since grammar and usage is not to be tested directly, but in an integrated manner, the split up as shown, does not restrict questions in the grammar section of question papers to the specific units shown in the split up of Workbook units. Grammar is to be tested by recycling grammar items learnt over a period of time in a comprehensive manner. Teachers may adapt this suggested distribution for classroom teaching, making modifications according to their specific needs.
- Schools may adapt the given break-up as per their convenience.
- Activities such as Language games, quizzes, projects, role plays, dramatization, script writing etc must be done as ‘in class’ and ‘in school’ activities. In case, a field survey or visit is taken up, it must be under the direct supervision of the teacher.
