Reading Lesson about shopping
Intermediate , Grade 9-10 level


In this reading lesson students will be able to actively share their prior knowledge about a familiar topic : shopping . Students will be shown a short video clip which will immediately give them insights into the upcoming content in the reading. The lesson will progress starting from setting context (lead in) to a short speaking activity to involve and engage students . This will lead to Pre-Reading : Students will actively contribute in elicitation of new vocabulary words , which will be consolidated later through a set of brief tasks ( spelling, matching terms and meaning). The next complimentary stage of pre-reading is guessing the content of the text. --While-Reading : students start by a short skimming activity , then they read for specific information (True-False_Not Given) task. Then , for ample exposure to lexicon they will match words with definitions . This will also assist them in answering tasks (2-3-4) which are more challenging. Post-Reading : Students are going to invest and recall all what they have learnt today to take part in a classroom debate. (In a future lesson, this debate and the lesson as a whole can be useful for a writing activity)
