Procedure (45-55 minutes)
The teacher plays the CD player for the students to listen to a short audio track of a background of a street -no talking just 'noise'- and a police car then the teacher asks students to guess the place and what happened.
The teacher shows an eye-catching image or a picture of a tortoise on a taxi. The teacher asks students to think of what may be happened. The teacher throws a ball to a student to start listening to ideas from students, and that student throws the ball to another one, and so on.
The teacher plays the recording for the students to listen to an interview between a taxi driver and a reporter about a tortoise that has fallen on the taxi. Students listen and follow the text in their books to check if their guesses were correct. The teacher asks the students some false/ true questions. Then they listen again to the interview and then discuss the questions in pairs. (Flase facts dictation)
The teacher plays the audio track for the students again but asks them to summarize what they have heard and write the paragraph in a paper. The teacher then asks the students to swap their papers with their students to peer check.
The teacher asks the students to prepare 5 questions about what they read, once they have them ready. The teacher tells the students to make groups of 4 and then they can ask those questions to each other. The teacher monitor and gives feedback.
