To provide gist and detailed reading practice using a text about "when I was small"
To provide product writing in the context of "when I was small"
Procedure (35-45 minutes)
T will put photos of the things kids believed in when they were small on the walls. T instructs the Ss to go around the room and look at the photos and answer "What are they?Which one do you like and why?" T instructs Ss to talk about their answers within their groups. Ss are later nominated from different groups to answer the Qs.
T shows the pictures and tries to make the Ss understand the photos by working in groups and in an open discussion. T elicits the words monster and shark.
Ss will be given the reading and they will be instructed to match the reading with the photos. Ss will later check their answers with their partners. Answer sheet will be given to the Ss.
Ss will read the passage again but this time answer some Qs on the reading. Qs are: 1-Who was afraid of something as a child? 2-Who is still a bit afraid now? 3- Who didn't understand something as a child? 4- Who still doesn't really understand it as an adult?
Ss will be instructed to write about what they believed when they were small that they don't believe now. They will write 2-3 sentences. They will later switch their writing with their partner and read their partners writing. After that they will pick the best writing in their group. Finally, every Ss will get up and read each groups best writing. Ss will at last come to a decision on whose writing is the best and that person will read it to the WC.
