Procedure (24-30 minutes)
Students will be asked generally about time management to engage them in a group conversation, setting their minds to introduce new grammar and vocabulary.
Students will be given their handouts and a limited time to scan through the short article, underlining any new vocabulary and phrases. Students will be monitored throughout this time, and guided if necessary.
After the students have read the article and underlined any new vocabulary and phrases, they will be asked to summarize the article. Afterwards the grammar introduced in the text will be clarified and explained to them. Then, based on the knowledge acquired they will continue to do the practices in pairs and answer as a whole class afterwards.
