Anna Carrera TP7-2
Upper Intermediate level
Students practice reading for gist and for detail via a text about maintaining brain health.
Students practice speaking about their opinions and own health strategies.
Procedure (34-42 minutes)
T asks students: At what age is it important to start taking care of your brain?
T asks students: When you hear the term "Brain Health", what do you think about? What comes to your mind? Jamboard: Mindmap of Brain Health. Students create Post-Its with their thoughts on the topic. MFP as needed.
T tells Ss: Quickly read the following pieces of text and decide which title matches which text. Jamboard: Large group activity. Students move the titles to the correct text.
T tells Ss: Step 1: Read the full text on your own and see how many of our Brain Health ideas from the previous exercise you can find. Quick OCFB. Step 2: Each of the following statements has information missing. Using what you have read in the text select the correct information from the options given. Move Ss to breakout rooms to check their answers in pairs.
T tells Ss: Together with your partner, identify one brain health tip that is not on this list that you both think is also helpful. Put your tip in the Jamboard for the whole group to see. Move students back to breakout rooms. OCFB: Look at the tips from your peers. Which one would you start doing?
