reading and vocabulary
intermediate level


In this lesson, the Ss will practice scan and detail reading. The lesson starts with setting the context by asking them about any accident that they have heard or read about recently. This is followed by pre-teach the vocabulary that might be difficult for some learners. Then, they will be asked to do gist and scan reading . After that, I will give them more time to read the passage again in a more detailed way. After that, they will be asked to do the follow-up task which is speaking one. I prepared a flexi stage just in case.
