Procedure (33-46 minutes)
Write the lesson topic on the board. "Do you believe in it"? Try to elicit the word "paranormal" by asking Ss what they think it is. If they have figured it out, put the pictures with paranormal happenings on the board and ask Ss to say what is on each picture. If they fail to come up with the word "paranormal", put the pictures with paranormal happenings on the board and ask Ss what kind of things are there on the pictures. Asking questions. Is it natural or unnatural? Is it normal or not normal? When the students say not normal ask them what the other word is for not normal.(giving hints like which letter it starts with). .
Read the beginning of two true stories and tell what they might have in common. Discuss in groups and answer the question: "What these stories might have in common?" In case Ss are not familiar with construction "to have something in common" teacher will use ISQ -"Are these stories going to have something different or something similar".
Read the whole stories quickly. Pay attention to the highlighted words. Try to guess the meaning of the words from context.
Read the text again. Fill in the gaps in the glossary matching the definitions with words highlighted in the text.
