Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

After getting the social networks sites, T will try to make them brainstorming about the social network sites they know. And T asks them "Why do you think the people have chosen those photos?" then T wants them to talk with their pairs about the following questions; - Do you have a profile photo of yourself which you use on social networking sites? - Why did you choose it? - What do you think the photo says about you?

Pre-Reading/Listening (10-12 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

The teacher will tell the students that they will read a text about the categories of profile pictures. and make them work as a group and give them 6 heading and 6 pictures to match the heading with the pictures. then the teacher wants them to stick the photos and the headings on the board. and the teacher will ask the groups to check the other groups' answers.

While-Reading/Listening #1 (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

There are 12 explanation of the types of profile picture and 12 headings. The teacher will give students 6 explanation and 6 headings and also give different headings and explanations to the pairs. So each pair will get 12 headings and 12 explanation. The teacher will ask them to work individual firstly. then wants from the pairs to exchange their explanation and heading matchings with their pairs and check them. As you remember the pictures and the headings were on the board and at the end the teacher will nominate the students to stick the correct explanation under the correct heading so they will see all the answers on the board.

While-Reading/Listening #2 (14-16 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

The teacher will show the highlighted words in the text to the students and ask them to guess their meaning and by working as a group write a definition for each phrase but they are not allowed to use dictionary- define the phrases with your own words-. the teacher will write all the words on the board and ask for a member of each group to come to board and explain the phrase that the teacher will show only the person on the board to his/her group. If the group members guess correctly they will get the point so it will go on like that as a race.
