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

While-Reading/Listening #2 (14-16 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

At the beginning of this stage I would hand the paper to students then Ask them questions written in the paper about the reading then let them read the reading and find the answers then ask them to tell to the class.
