Warmer/Lead-in (1-5 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

Students are shown a relevant visual and asked if they recognize it. -Do you know this picture? Can you remember the film you saw it? -Can you tell me more about James Bond? Who is he? What's his job?

pre-Reading (5-10 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

Then they are pre-taught the possible blocking vocabulary by showing them different pictures of Tutankhamen coffin in different exhibitions around the world and start ask them will it come again? will it stay there forever? and then through a vocabulary quiz they are given I am going to elicit the meaning of the new vocab from Ss. In order to clarify the instruction I model the first question. -I'm giving you this quiz, and you work in pairs to match the words with their definitions and pictures. - For example, I'm matching the picture with the word . - Now you do the same with your partners.

While-Reading/Listening #1 (5-10 minutes) • To make the Ss practice reading for gist

Ask the students some questions after hiding the title of the reading passage. for example (what is the text about?) and then give them the chance to read to guess the title giving them simple instructions and applying ICQs (Are you going to read fast or slow?) to make sure they've got the clear instructions.

While-Reading/Listening #2 (10-15 minutes) • To make the Ss practice reading for specific information

Demo one question and then ask ICQs -Are we reading alone?no -Are we reading first?no -What are we doing first?looking at the questions. Elicit the answers and give feedback.
