Procedure (31-39 minutes)
I'll hang book covers on the board, thenI will start the lesson by asking the students this question: "Who has recently read a book ?"" In short," What was it about?" This is to lead the students into suitable context to read and speak about fiction and fact books.
I'll hand the students a handout to match the words with their meanings in pairs. Each pair checks their answers with the other. Then I'll give them model answers for feedback. Next, I'll highlight pronunciation.
First. I'll ask the students to read "ONE HUNDRED YEARS of SOLITUDE and THE HOUSE OF THE SPIRITS" quickly and find answers to 5 quetions for reading for gist, Ex.3,p 32. Then I'll hand them a model answer for feedback. Next, I'll hand the students a handout with five questions to read the texts again for detail. They work in groups. After that, groups check answers with each others. Finally, I'll quickly highlight model answers dictated by the students on the board.
