I am going to talk about achievements famous people had and then ask them to look at the title and pictures to guess what the people in the pictures have achieved, in this part I am going to give them the pictures only, if they have them with the text, they may look at the text to get some information. at this stage I can pre-teach the new vocabulary ( prodigy, supergran and prestigious ) according to the procedure MFP ( Meaning, Form and Pronunciation)
I am going to put students in groups of 5 giving them each a paragraph to read and expressing a summerise of the person's achievement to the other people in their group. They are being monitored while they speak in case they need help.
Students work individually to do exercise 3 and check the meaning of the words in bold in case of having time they work in pairs to swap information and their ideas in full sentences. They will be monitored for help if necessary.
Ask the question in exercise 4b to the whole class, then put them in pairs to discuss encouraging them to give opinions and use the new vocabulary they learnt.
