Procedure (49-10 minutes)
1. I will start the lesson by asking the SS a question: Do you believe in magic? then I will elicit answers from the SS 2. I will perform a simple magic trick to stimulate their interest in the topic. I will ask a student to be my assistant to help me 3. After finishing the trick, my the student playing the assistant role will ask three questions to the students: Does the teacher have magic powers? Is it fun to watch magic tricks or not? Do you want to know how it is done or not?
I will present the selected vocabulary from the text through an anecdote of the magic trick I will be performing. My strategy here is eliciting all the words from the students.1 1. I will draw the magic trick on the board 2. I will write the words on the board and try to elicit the answers 3. I will drill the words ICQs: I want you to help me complete my story using these words, even if you don't know some of the words, keep on guessing CCQs: Will you be writing a story? No Will you tell me which word to choose? Yes Do you have to guess only one word? No CCQs for the vocabulary part: 1.Do we make a magic trick?No 2. Does vanish mean something "visible" or "invisible"? invsible 3. When I reveal a secret, does it mean everyone will know it?Yes 4. Is a traitor an honest person or a liar?
SS will be asked to come up with a title for the text after reading it. The title shouldn't exceed 5 words. ICQs: Now you will read the text and try to find a title composed of only 5 words. CCQs: Are you going to read to fill in the blanks?No Is the title going to be specific ?No , general Can you write 4 words in the title?Yes Then SS will stand up and choose someone to share answers with. After they finish, I will ask them to post their answers on the board. If there aren't many SS, I will ask them to share their answers in pairs
I designed two questions to be answered and they need intensive reading. ICQs: Now you are going to read the text to answer two questions. Read the questions first then find their answers in the text. CCQs: Are you going to read to answer 3 questions? Do you need to read the details? after the SS finish, they will check their peers answers and then WCFB will be conducted and I will ask them to provide evidence from the text.
SS will scan the text to answer T/F questions. ICQs: Read the text again and answer whether these statements are T/F and don't forget to correct the false sentence. CCQs: 1. Are you going to correct the false statements?Yes 2.Are you working with your pairs? No FB: one of the students will play the teacher's role and write the answers on the board and then discuss them with the SS
After this stage, I will refer to the title the SS have written in the gist reading stage and try to confirm their predictions
SS will be asked to choose one of three magic tricks: Cutting people in half, Pulling rabbits out of a hat and making people vanish. I will display some pics to clarify the tricks and ask them to answer the following question: If you were a magician , which trick would you do and why? CCQs: Are you going to imagine a situation ?Yes Are you going to choose two tricks? No
I will make the SS watch a video about a coin vanishing magic prank and ask them to guess how the magic trick was performed
