Reading for gist and details
Procedure (28-40 minutes)
T writes 'urban' on WB and asks Ss what it means. After they come up with ideas, T writes 'urbanisation' to ask the same. Then Ss will be given pictures of Sheikh Zayed road in Dubai, one taken in 1991, another in 2005. T will ask Ss: What changes can you see on this pictures?
Ss will do ex 2 on p.58 as a pre-reading task. T will ask them to read a question first and try to answer it reading only the introduction in pairs. Then T writes some of the confusing words on WB to elicit their meanings.
Ss will read the text to get the general idea and match with the given short summaries in ex.3; T sets time limit of 1 min and 1 min to discuss them with a partner. T will encourage them to come up with correct answers by asking additional questions about particular lines in the text.
Ss will do a detailed reading and discuss their answers with a partner. During the feedback T will present some more new words and elicit their meanings with Ss. Then T will write Good changes and Bad changes on the WB and divide them into four big groups to come and write ideas.
Ss will fill in the new vocabulary on ex. 6 (p.59), after which the T will write some of the words on WB to discuss their meanings with WC. Then T divides Ss into small groups and gives one general question for everyone and one specific for each group and asks them to write down ideas together. T then asks and concludes the lesson by giving definitions of new vocabulary to quickly check if they memorized them.
