In this lesson, learners focus on receptive skills of reading and sub skills gist reading and reading for details and as out the class will have a productive skill of speaking. There are three stages for this reading lesson: pre- reading while reading and post reading. The lesson starts with a lead in activity and teacher introduce the topic to the SS by asking some questions and show them a video. The lead in is followed by pre- teaching necessary vocabulary from the reading text (pre-reading).Then I will give them a gist task (deciding which title fits the text) and they will read for 2 minutes only. After that I will give them a more detailed reading task, and they have to answer the questions I give them on a paper. Then in pairs they compare. Feedback.
