Procedure (33-45 minutes)
I print ghosts paper models, eliciting the word from them. After drilling and writing stage, I ask them to think about any situation happened with them before related to ghosts' stories. They start talking together about it while monitoring.
I use flash cards to show pictures of the new vocabulary that may blocking them in the reading text. I may skip the checking step because all pictures are very clear to understand.
Ss read the questions first. Then they look at the pictures and read the introduction of the text. I give them two minutes to answer the questions. They check in pairs. I give feedback.
I give the ss a reason to listen that is to label the three pictures with words from the listened track. I play the audio file. They answer while listening. They check in pairs. i give feedback.
I ask ss to read the text for detailed information through some correction sentences. I give them time to read the text. Then they correct the information. They check in pairs. I give feedback on wall.
I give them 1 minute to think about : " Do you think Stephen saw the ghost? " Then I give them 3-5 minutes to speak together about that freely. I give feedback.
