To practice reading for gist and specific information in the context of where people are from
Sub-aim: introduce and practice adjectives fantastic/awful/ beautiful
Procedure (37-45 minutes)
Lead-in – re-introduce myself. Think of a way to get the Ss interested in the lesson with a quick warmer (a game maybe?)
Pre-reading: Put photo of myself on the whiteboard. Use this to introduce the reading. (Try to get them interested in where I am and the photo of the couple from the reading)
Reading 2 - Specific information: Write on the board (or create a HO): What is her job? What is his job? Where is she from? Where is he from? Where do they live? [you can add a couple more questions if you want] Ss read ex. 1 and answer the questions. Peer-check answers and provide feedback
Controlled Practice: Have learners practice the conversations. Provide feedback and error correction as whole class.
