In this lesson, Ss will work on reading skills mainly. As a teacher, my main aim is reading skills and also sub-aim is speaking skills.At first, I will show some photos related with occupations like (a doctor, a secretary, a teacher, an engineer) as a lead-in to the lesson. I will ask Ss some CCQs about the professionals and also want them to predict what these people do or do not. Ss will discuss their predictions as WC. After this warm-up activity, I will elicit the target vocabulary by using a match activity. (Village/Private school/Expensive/Free/Hut/Head Teacher/Poor/Lucky.) After completed, I will give Ss a handout. Ss will find out the relevant words from the context. Finally, Pre-reading- while reading and post reading tasks will go on in a order.
