Main Aims

  • To provide gist and detailed reading practice using a text about stereotypes

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency in the context of stereotypes


Warmer/Lead-in (5-6 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

I hang pictures on the WB,all of them are related to Italy.Then I ask them which is the first thing that comes up in their mind when they think about Italy.They discuss with their partner then they share their ideas with the whole class.

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

I try to elicit the concept of stereotype using the pieces of information they have about Italy.I make examples and ask them to provide examples of stereotypes of other countries.They work in pairs. Introduce the concepts of generalization ans exaggeration as they will find them in the text.

While-Reading (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

Students are given the article.They have to read it for gist and understand which are the main topics of the article.They can compare them with the ideas they shared at the beginning of the lesson.

Post-Reading (10-12 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

Students are given a worksheet with a few questions about the article.In their group they discuss and answer the questions.Through the first four questions I check if they have understood the article.The last two ones can generate a group discussion,as their opinion is required.

Freer practice (10-12 minutes) • Provide fluency in the context of stereotype

Students have to think about their own country and which are the stereotypes of it.They work in small groups to share their ideas,then they share them with the rest of the class.
