Some idea for BKOF:
So by now we would have a few ideas for exercises for BKOF [Don’t know what BKOF is? Ask at: https://www.facebook.com/groups/TESOLJAPAN/].
Grammar, well, think about it. How do we speak?
When speaking, we will introduce a topic, then give information on that topic.

How could we introduce a task [or exercise] to help students think about introducing a topic, then give information on that topic? Pretty simple when you think about it as we do it all the time.
Statement, information, conclusion, right?
So what grammar would we use to introduce each aspect of our target conversation?
