The teacher explains the net step which is students go to different groups and share their stories and see if they have the same idea or not. Students are in groups of three so they need 3 minutes to finish reading their story. When they are back the teacher randomly asks some students to share their friends' stories or if they heard an interesting one.

While-Reading (15-0 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading

In the second while-reading task, the teacher divides the class into two groups, group A and group B. Each group has a link, the teacher gives the link to the groups and asks them to use the link to make the questions by the prompts. They can check their answer while doing the task. ( each group has a different set of questions) When they are back, the teacher shows them the correct form of the questions, then the teacher gives each group their own text, then group A and group B are mixed with each other, the teacher assigns them into groups of two or four depending on the number attendance. Students in their groups will ask their questions and their partner should answer the question from their text. When students are back the teacher shows the answers and sends them the answer in the chat box.
