To provide gist and scan reading practice using some articles from newspapers in the context of the media.
To provide clarification of some words from the news in the context of the media.
Procedure (18-30 minutes)
I will start a discussion with the students asking them if they read newspapers or not. I will also ask them about the topics of newspapers and I will show them a short video called The newspaper. It's about someone's opinion of the content of a newspaper. I will ask them after watching the video if they agree with her or not.
I will teach the students some key words before their reading. I will elicit the meaning from them through a task. They will work in pairs and match the words to its pictures. Then, I will give them the feedback. I'll use some CCQs to check their understanding of the meaning. Then, they will repeat the words after me and I will write them on the board. I will also ask the students to predict what they will read. I will use the coursebook to show them some headlines and, in pairs too, they will choose two headlines and try to guess what their articles are talking about.
I will ask the students to read the articles quickly and match them with their headlines. I will give them two minutes to do this. Then, I will ask them to check their answers in pairs, and in the end, I will check the answers with them.
I will ask the students to read the articles again carefully and answer some questions about some specific information. They will check their answers in pairs. Then, I will check the answers with them.
I will divide them into two groups and ask them to discuss two questions about what they read. I will monitor while they are speaking to get my feedback, and If I catch any mistakes, I will correct them.
