To provide gist, scan and detailed reading practice using a text about a long and healthy life through the context of a message from Life co-author, Helen Stephenson.
To provide practice, review and clarification of some lexis describing longhand healthy life in the context of long and healthy life
Procedure (21-44 minutes)
I will start the session by setting a context about the healthy life. I will show some pictures to set the context and engage Ss' mind about the lesson's topic.
I will use different techniques including mimes, VAs and explanation to teach some lexis and elicit the lexis
I will give the text to students to read the text in order to get a general idea about the topic. then I will divide the student by number. The same number will find their match to discuss the text and share their ideas and answer the questions.
I will ask the Ss to read the text again carefully. They should read it quite in detail to answer the proceeding questions. after reading the text, I will ask them to work in pair and answer the questions.
I will explain that they're going t listen to the audio. Two native express their idea about a healthy life and their life expectancy rate. They will listen to it and then in pair/group will work to find the answers.
In this stage which is the last and most important stage of this procedure, I will raise the question of how to live healthily? How to live longer? and also what are their life expectancy rate?
