I am going to present a power point presentation including some pictures and discussion questions related to the context of the reading text in order to engage them in the activity and activate their schemata related to the context.

Warmer/Lead-in (8-10 minutes) • The learners watch a video, try to record specific information and talk about the questions in pairs. Then they discuss as whole class, whereby they adopt the context of the lesson.

The two pre-reading discussion questions related to the reading text theme introduced to the students after they are put in pairs. While they watch a context related video, they try to write down top-interesting golden items in the video and think about the rest of the questions and then ask and answer them to each other. Finally, they share their ideas with the class.
