While-Reading #1 (10-12 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading tasks

The T asks ss what strategies they remember regarding matching sentence ending questions. T reminds them that it is better to read sentence beginnings rather than because some sentence endings will not be used.
