This lesson continues with the same context as the previous lesson (reading part with Leysan), but changes from a reading lesson to a listening lesson. The lesson also is a source for the grammar to be presented in the following lesson (lujaine part).


Main Aims

  • Provide students with practice in listening for gist, detail and specific information through a text about a paranormal happening

Subsidiary Aims

  • To give students practice in speaking for fluency.


Warmer/Lead-in (1-2 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Will get a coffee cup as a realia to introduce them to the topic of "The Coffee Cup".

Pre-Reading/Listening (3-6 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

Will show the reading text to learners, divide them into groups, hand them a copy of the reading extract each, set a time limit then ask them to choose a title for the text from the board.

While-Reading/Listening #1 (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

Will show the HO to learners, hand each one of them a copy, sit a time limit for them to read questions then let them listen to the rest of the story. After that, will ask them to answer the questions in their groups.

While-Reading/Listening #2 (11-14 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

Here, will be showing the learners the HO then distribute copies of HO to each one of them. While in groups, they will be listening to extracts from the text and complete the missing words.

Post-Reading/Listening (8-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

While in groups, learners will be asked two questions for open discussion. At the end, I will introduce them to the quote of Stuart Chase "For those who believe, no proof is necessary. For those who don't believe, no proof is possible."
