To make students practice reading for skimming, scanning and reading for details in the context of biography about one of the most famous British chefs , Jamie Oliver
To expose students to phrases of family, work, study and free time activities
Procedure (32-45 minutes)
I am going to draw three baskets on the WB and them ask sts to fill in them with words they know about work,family, free time and study. Then sts will do ex.1 in groups and I will check their answers as a whole class. I am going to ask them to read the phrases of this ex and underline the verb of each.I am going to ask them change them into the past form and then I will check as a WC . I will draw their attention to the difference between words and phrases . Then I will tell them to complete filling in the basket as a WC to make sure of their understanding the point. I will draw their attention to the way how they should pronounce some of these phrases.
I am going to ask sts if they know any famous British people and then I will show them some of these people on pictures on the wall. We will have a kind of discussion about them if they know. I will ask them if they know who is most famous , Ex4a. After that, I will reveal Jamie's picture on chest and ask them if they know him and if they do, I will draw a chart on the WB of two columns, one for things they know about him and one for the things they want to know about him.
Sts now will read for gist (general information) to complete the chart if they could get any information about him and do Ex 4b..After sts peer check, I will check the answers as a whole class.Now his job has been known to sts. For this reason, I am going to ask them to say the words, chef and chefs to make sure of their pronunciation.
