Main Aims

  • To provide gist and detailed reading practice in the context of soap operas.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide clarification of words related to soap operas.


Warmer/Lead-in (6-7 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

To engage Ss, I will show them an image of something that looks like Netflix intro to create interest and anticipation, and I will ask them the following question so that they can start to predict what the lesson is about: What comes to your mind when you see the image on the screen? I will then ask them to talk about the two next questions on my next slide: Where do you think the first TV shows started? Which TV shows are the most popular among women? I will give them time to think about the answers individually and then I will nominate Ss to answer the questions and provide with their opinion. We will discuss as an open class.

Pre-Reading/Listening (3-4 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

A)MEANING AND PRONUNCIATION I will paste the MFP activity link on the chats and have Ss label the words I selected (soap opera, advertisement) with the right meaning. They wil do this individually. When they're done I will show them the way their activity should look like, I will model the two words and stress the correct pronunciation.

While-Reading/Listening #1 (8-9 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

I will share my screen and have Ss read the text and complete the activity. Ss will share their answers with a partner. When they are done we will compare and clarify as OCFB

While-Reading/Listening #2 (7-8 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

I will share my screen for the Reading Task 2 and ask students to read the text more slowly paying attention to detail and answer the true and false questions. They will discuss their answers in groups. OCFB

Post-Reading/Listening (3-4 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

I will ask my students to discuss the following questions: Do you think soap operas reproduce or alter reality? Do you think soap operas are a thing of the past? Feedback on the task Delayed Error Correction
