My main aim is to get Ss to practice their speaking skills while they are making decisions.
My sub aim is to get Ss to practice their listening and reading skills.
Procedure (42-51 minutes)
I give Ss a HO with pictures and ask them "What do you think these people are doing, can you guess? Upon getting some answers from a few Ss the stage will come to an end.
Depending on their numbers, I will group the Ss and I will provide them with a jigsaw which contains words and phrases taken from the texts and their definitions. They will work in groups to match the phrases with their definitions. As FB I will provide them with an answer key.
I will provide 3 different text for each group and I will instruct them to "read and take notes", when they are done, I will pair each Ss from each group with Ss from different groups, using their notes they will tell Ss from other groups about their cases. By the end of the stage everybody will have an idea about all of the cases.
I will write two questions on the board taken from the students book and I will instruct them to " listen and answer the questions". Once they are done there will be a whole class feedback.
I will tell Ss to sit with their first groups and I will give the instruction: "answer the questions under your texts with your group and come up with arguments for and against them and take notes"
