What is it about? How do you know? What is the structure/ organization of this poster? What do you like about this poster/ What student could do better?

Exposure (8-10 minutes) • To provide a model of production expected in coming tasks through reading/listening

The teacher hangs the checklist on display, for students' independent work.
