To practice reading skills through reading for understanding the gist.
Ss will try to understand the lexis throughout the context.
Procedure (40-50 minutes)
Ss will answer below questions: 1. Remember when you were children. Did your parents do everything you wanted? 2. How did you make them do what you want? 3. Do you have a little brother or sister or a niece? How do they want things from their parents? 4. Do you think parents can teach their children? What can they teach their children? 5. Do you think parents can learn from their children? What they can learn from their children?
Ss will be given the handouts. Then Ss will try to guess the gist of the text by reading the title only. Then I will write the question: "What does the writer think parents can learn from their children?" on the WB. Give instructions and ask ICQs.
Ss will read the text once and will try to answer the question "What does the writer think parents can learn from their children? Do you agree?" Ss will have 7 minutes to read the text.
Ss will do exercise 3 where they will match the words that are written in italic in the text with five explanation phrases. Then they will give feedback to the class. I will give them 7 minutes to work in pairs.
