While-Reading/Listening #1 (4-6 minutes) • To provide students with less challenging gist and specific information reading/listening tasks

I will ask Ss to read the text quickly and answer how the writer felt about his trip to Mongolia. After that, I will instruct them to work individually. To review, I will share a slide where they can see example answers.

While-Reading/Listening #2 (12-14 minutes) • To provide students with more challenging detailed, deduction and inference reading/listening tasks

I will ask the Ss to read the multiple choice questions on Microsoft forms for one minute. Then, I will do the first question with the group in order to model how the activity will be done. They will read the text once more and answer them individually. I will instruct them that they will have 5 minutes to answer all 10 questions. Once they have finished, I will send them to BORs and have them share their answers within their groups. I will ask Ss to justify their answers.

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

I will ask Ss to discuss the following question: Have you ever been to a totally new place? I am going to send them to BORs to discuss the question within their groups. Then we will have an open-class discussion where they are going to share what they talked about.
