Main Aims

  • To provide gist reading practice using a text about Children

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide product writing practice of a essay in the context of Children

Procedure

Warmer/Lead-in (3-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

T puts the picture of the child in the text and asks them about what they see in the picture.

Pre-Reading/Listening (5-8 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

Pre-teach the following vocab: sedentary, abduction, wean. T writes the quote: "The more risks you allow children to take, the better they learn to take care of themselves" and asks Ss for their opinion.

While-Reading/Listening #1 (5-7 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

Ss are given 3 options to choose from the best title to the text and are asked to read quickly to pick a title. Ss are asked to check in pairs their choice and discuss it.

While-Reading/Listening #2 (12-15 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

Ss are given seven true/false statements and are asked to read the text for specific information to answer the task. After answering, Ss are asked to check in pairs their answers and if there was a disagreement in their answers, they are asked to justify their choice. This is done as a whole class.

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

Ss are divided into groups and are asked to dicuss the topic based on their childhood. They can either agree or disagree with the writer and/or Tremblay. The groups can exchange opinions as a second step.
