To provide scan and detailed reading practice using a text about explorers
To provide clarification and practice of phrasal verbs in the context of travel
Procedure (27-43 minutes)
T shows the Ss some photos of famous explorers and tries to elicit information about them and what they might have done.
The T pre-teaches some of the vocabulary in the text to get students.
T divides the class into groups of 3 students and assign a part of the text to each in a group. Students are given time to fill their chart with the appropriate details. After they finish, they help each other fill the test of the chart. Then, Ss are given time to scan the other texts to find answers to the questions in the ex. 2C.
Ss are asked to respond to the text by answering the following question: which explorer achieved most? Ss exchange their answers.
Ss scan the text they have read and find the phrasal verbs in the text before they move to another exercise to match their meaning. The final stage is to provide some controlled practice on the phrasal verbs they learned,
