While-Reading Practice #1 (6-7 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

1. The learners will read a text to get the general idea. I will give my students 3 minutes only and this will be individual work. They will then answer general questions about the text. (This exercise will utilize Google Forms) 2. The learners check the answers in pairs (via breakout rooms) before OCFB (Open Class Feedback)

While-Reading/Listening #2 (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

1. Tell learners to read carefully and answer detail questions about the text. (Ex 2) (on Google Forms) 2. The learners check the answers in pairs (via BORs) before OCFB. They will read the text and determine / decide what is the best answer. I will ask my students to justify their answers.

Post (Respond to the text)/Discussion (10-13 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

1. I will have learners respond to the contents of the text A. “Do you agree with everything in the text?/why or why not?” B. “Tell a partner about a time your first impressions were wrong about a person.” (This will utilize breakout rooms) 2. Conduct feedback on the task. 3. Delayed Error Correction (DEC).
