Pre-teach vocabulary and reading for gist (8-10 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible. To make students practice the skill of reading for gist

- Ask Ss each on his own to do a matching exercise, give clear instructions and demonstrate the first one. After doing the exercise, ask Ss to check their answers together then give feedback when necessary (ask CCQs and drill when necessary). -Workaholic: /ˌwɜːrkəˈhɔːlɪk/ -Distract: /dɪˈstrækt/ -Set the gist task. Ask Ss each on his own to go through the text quickly (2 minutes) and tell what are these questions about. Ask ICQs: -Are you going to read quickly or slowly? - Are you going to work on your own or in groups?

-Set the follow- up task: Give Ss cards with adjectives and nouns then ask them to categorize them on the board. Give clear instructions.

Reading for detail and practicing speaking (10-17 minutes) • To allow Ss to practice reading for detail and give them the chance to produce language.

- Set the reading for detail task: Ask Ss to go through the text again and choose the answer that suits them. Give clear instructions. Demonstrate the task with them on the board. Ask ICQs: -Are you going to read slowly or quickly? - Where are you going to write the answers? Are you going to work alone or in groups? - After finishing the task, ask them to count the points. Demonstrate with them how to count them. After that ask them to move and read the results of the questions. Monitor the activity and help Ss. -Set the speaking task: Ask Ss while they are standing to speak to each other. One students asks the other -Does this result tell about you?
