Elementary, A1 level
To provide scan and detailed reading practice using a text about Paris by Citybike in the context of bikes, traffic
To provide fluency speaking practice in a discussion in the context of advantages and disadvantages of using bikes
Procedure (36-46 minutes)
i will tell the students where i live and have them tell me if there's a lot of traffic i will ask them if they know when the traffic time is , then i will tell them that I prefer to use public transportation rather than a car or a bike then i will give the Ss a HO which has few questions to discuss. Ss will be working in pairs
i will show some pictures to Ss and ask them what they think the text is about, i will also show some pictures of people riding bikes during traffic time, other pictures of people using the public transport then i will give them a HO and they need to write three questions after the brainstorming activity.
After the Ss finish writing the three question, i will tell them if they can guess the answer, i will give them 2 minutes to guess, before they start reading i will try to elicit some vocabulary. After that i will tell them to read the text and look for the answers, they will be reading for specific information. students will be reading individually but working in pairs.
following the previous stage, i will give another task to the Ss (T/F) sentences, the Ss might need more time here to look for the right answers, plus they have to correct the false sentences, also they will be working in pairs here.
i will tell to work in pairs and discuss, is the city bike system a good idea for your town why and why not ? and what solution do you have for the traffic issue? students will be practicing speaking here
