Procedure (41-53 minutes)
I will show students a picture of Rayya and Sakeena (famous characters in the Egyptian drama). I will ask students, Who are they? What are they famous for? open class discussion. I will ask students about their reading preferences. What do you like reading in Arabic? What do you like reading in English?
I will teach students some keywords that they may face difficulties with while reading the text. Inspector, noun/countable, someone whose job is to officially inspect something. I will show students a picture of an inspector and they guess who is he? (picture) as there is a picture, no need for CCQs. Murder, noun, countable and uncountable/ A crime of killing. I will show them a picture of a man holding a knife and another man being killed. I will ask students, What did that man(The one who holds a knife) do? (kill) What is this situation? (murder). Murderer. countable: someone who murders another person. I will show students the same picture again and point to the man who holds the knife and ask, Who is he? (It is expected that students answer, killer) I will say he is a murderer.
1- I show SS a picture of the back of the book, from which they will read an extract later, and ask "What is the book about?" 2- I. pose questions to check SS's understanding" ok then, who's Amanda?" 3- I. elicit answers from the Ss. " She's Jeremy's wife." 4- I set the task and demo "Now you will read the text alone and then you will mark seven sentences with (True) or (False), and correct the false sentences." 5- I ask a couple of ICQs - Are you going to read and answer alone or in a group? - Are you going to read quickly or slowly? - Will you just mark the sentences with (True) or (False)? 6- I. display the reading text alongside the seven True or False sentences. 7- Ss read individually. 8- After Ss finish, I. put them into breakout rooms to check answers in groups. 9-I. monitor to help when needed and to make sure all Ss are on the same task 10- I show Ss the answer key as a feedback
