To provide gist, scan, detailed and inference reading practice using a text about top airports in the world
To provide review, practice and clarification of vocabulary related to airport in the context of the top airports.
Procedure (35-49 minutes)
T elicits the transportations from Ss through some questions. Qs: Where did you go on your last holiday? How did you go there? T writes the questions on board. T gives time (1 minute) to Ss to discuss these questions with their friends and then asks Ss about their pairs.
T shows the flashcards (pictures) and asks Ss for the vocabulary, with the unknown words T shows the name behind the card. T pins the cards on the board and as Ss drill them T takes them from the board.
Ss will look at some photos of airports and discuss the name of the airports in their groups.
Ss will read for gist in a minute to check their predictions about the airports.
Ss read the text to answer more detailed questions. After they answer the questions alone, they write their initials on the paper and check their friend's answer through the answer key. Ss are given a - one side green, the other side red card. They hold the card for True or False answers.
Ss will focus on the highlighted words in the reading. T elicits from ss how to deduce the meaning from the context, for the first word "security" T asks "Where do we go after check in at the airport?" Ss deduce the meaning in their groups. To check the meaning of the words T divides class into two. Ss play a taboo card game.
Ss are given role play cards with some prompts and act out a role play in pairs to practice the TL.
