To provide scan reading practice using a text about staying healthy in the context of health
Procedure (36-49 minutes)
By using the pictures of the book on page 18 and the title of the reading on page 19, they guess the content of the article and finally they are given the AVA provided by the teacher to work on what is good for them to do and what is bad both psychologically and physically.
The board is divided into two parts that is ''Good for you'' and ''Bad for you''. I ask them to give their ideas to complete the list with the ideas in their book being checked as a whole class and finally they should add more ideas on their own and give reasons.
Students work in pairs as student A and B to read only their part A or B. They then check the items listed in exercises 1a and b. They read their part again in a 5 minute time to check the questions and tick the correct alternative. In all the procedures they are monitored.
Students are going to guess the meaning of bolded vocabulary and use their dictionaries if needed. At this stage the teacher can teach them some more new vocabulary related to the topic.
Students work in pairs with their books closed and talk evenly about the most and the least surprising items they read or learnt.
In pairs students open their books and read the other part of the reading to answer exercise 4 . At this stage they should use the new vocabulary they learnt and they are checked with the whole class.
Students go through their workbook to complete exercise 1 page 12, they do it in pairs without referring to their student book and finally they are given the answers.
