Project a photo onto the board. Ask Ss to see if they like reading books or watching movies. Tell Ss to talk in pairs. Then one or two Ss share what they have heard from their partner(s) to the whole class.
Project Some photos regarding the topic. Elicit some vocabulary items here: cancer, operation, crash, brain-dead. Drill chorally and individually the words as well as a or two sentences. "He is brain-dead after the crash." Then ask Ss to find a connection between the photos and predict what the story is in their pairs. Then random students tell the class what they think. After that give them a handout and ask them to match the words in the box with the definitions individually then check in pairs. Monitor them to see if they have any problems with the questions. Ask an early finisher to write the answers on the board. Next check the answers on the board with the whole class. In the end, project the answers on the board.
Project a handout with a question onto the board & show Ss a handout. Ask them to read the whole text quickly to find out the answer to the question "Did the fans like the ending of the book or the film?" Do it individually and then check in pairs. Monitor + note down errors for delay correction. Ask the whole class to answer the question and say where in the text they found the answer.
Ask them to read the whole text again and answer the questions individually and then check in pairs. Monitor + note down errors for delay correction. Ask an early finisher to write the answers on the board. Then check the answers with the whole class. Ask Ss to give reasons for their answers. In the end, project the answers on the board.
