Main Aims

  • To provide detailed and scan reading practice using a text about survival on a deserted island in the context of what people like, dislike, or value in their own lives.

Subsidiary Aims

  • To provide fluency speaking practice in a pair and group work in the context of the class readings.


Lead-in (5-8 minutes) • To set lesson context and engage students

-T will present a scenario where ss are stuck on deserted island. -Image of an island, plus a few questions: --What do you think is on this island? --Do you think it is warm, cold, rainy or dry? --What kind of animals?

Pre-Teach Vocabulary (10-12 minutes) • To prepare students for the text and make it accessible

-T will present images of three vocabulary terms and phrases --cut off from the world --go mad --pastries. -T will elicit from students the name, if possible. --T will describe what they do and then present vocab if students fail to identify images.

While-Reading (EX12C/EX12D) (10-15 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

-Ss must find people based on the set prompts from the worksheet. -T will demonstrate on the board: --Paola, who says she will miss talking to people. Is she a person who will be lonely? -Check: Are we looking for long sentences? -T will let the ss read for the allotted time. -Ss will check in pairs. --When finished, present an answer key on the board. -T will demonstrate on the board the next exercise: --Steve is bored by sunny weather. True or false? --"S likes Cairo." then write "s" hates Cairo. True or false? -T will let the ss read for the allotted time. -Ss will check in pairs. --When finished, present an answer key on the board.

While-Reading/Listening #2 (8-10 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

-T will present descriptions provided by the prompts in the textbook. -Ss must match names of the people to the deserted island scenarios they describe. --Example: This person cannot live without their music and won't miss going to school. --Elicit the answer: Jaime. -Check: Are we writing names of people? -T will allow students to read in the time allotted. -Check in pairs. -When finished, answer key will be posted to the board.

Post-Reading/Listening (EX12A) (8-10 minutes) • To provide with an opportunity to respond to the text and expand on what they've learned

-T will go back to EX12A and demonstrate for ss. --What would you miss? I would miss having lots of food. --What would you not miss? I would not miss needing a car. -Ss make a list and compare in pairs. -Content feedback --Error correction and acknowledgement of adequate performance.
