Procedure (38-49 minutes)
T asks what the Ss favorite movie is in a brief WC discussion
T shows a series of slides to elicit the blocking vocabulary from the Ss to prepare them for the reading text. The slides are about the movie Titanic. After eliciting a word, T asks some CCQs to clarify the meaning and shows the stress on the board. After that, pronunciation is practiced with choral and individual drilling.
Ss are given only one paragraph from the text. T asks the Ss to skim the text quickly to find out what the genre of the movie is. T sets a time limit of 2 min. At the end, there is a brief WC feedback.
Students are given the whole text. T asks the Ss to read the text and fill in the blanks with the words in the box. After that, Ss check their answers with their partners. After that, they are given a set of vocabulary items and definitions. In pairs, they match the vocabulary with the definitions by guessing the meaning. At the end, Ss come up to the board one by one and match the vocabulary with the definitions.
T asks the Ss if they have seen the movie and a follow-up question depending on their answer. While they are speaking, T monitors and takes notes of the errors the Ss make. After the brief discussion, T writes some sentences with errors on the board and Ss correct the errors with their pairs.
