Firstly, the lesson will start with a question; after getting a few answers from the SS, T announces that SS will start working in two groups and discuss the question according to the instructions in the BORs. T: "Will you work alone?" (No) T: "Will you speak with your friend?" (Yes) While the SS are in the BORs, T joins the BORs and monitors the SS without interfering. After the task is completed, T asks which ideas were stronger and why. After a few answers from the SS, T continues with the lesson.
SS are first supposed to complete a task about the vocabulary in the BORs. T copys the link in the chat box and asks SS to open it. There will be seven vocabulary and seven definitions. Students are expected to discuss and complete the task in pairs here. Also, T will announces that SS have got 5 minutes to do that. T: "Will you work in pairs?" (Yes) T: "How much time do you have?" (5) During the task, T joins the BOR and monitor the SS. After the task has finished, T first shows the answer key and asks to check their answers, secondly; T drills the vocabulary and ask some CCQs. T first read the word and want SS to repeat after her. Repetition will be done both individually and with whole class. Then, T asks CCQ about the related vocabular. For example; T: "Is "fly the nest" something children or parents do?" (Children) T: "Has "boomerang" a good effect?" (No) T: "Is empty-nest-syndrome something that parents feel? (Yes) This procedure will be applied to all vocabulary in the list.
There will be three gist-reading questions. SS will be expected to read the questions first to have a idea about what they will read. Then, T announces that SS have 3-4 minutes to read the text quickly and look answers for those questions. T also announces that, this time SS do not go to the BORs, instead SS will speak all together. T: "Will you speak all together?" (Yes) T: "Will you read alone?" (Yes) T: "Will you read quickly? (Yes) T gives the SS 3-4 minutes and ask answers from some of the students before continuing the lesson.
Now, SS are expected to read the text in a detailed-way before answering the other questions. T announces that SS will have 5 minutes the read the text in a detailed way. Afterwards, SS will be given a few extra minutes for the SS to complete their answers. T also announces that they will not go to the BORs, instead SS are asked to share their ideas all together. T: "Will you work alone?" (Yes) T: "Will you read quickly?" (No)
In the last activity, SS are expected to talk in pairs in BORs about four questions about the text. T announces that SS will talk about the questions/answers in pairs in BORs. T also announces that SS have 7 minutes to talk. T: "Will you talk?" (Yes) T: "Will you write something?" (No) While the SS are in the BORs talking, T joins the rooms one by one and takes downs of the mistakes of the students.
