Teaching Practice 1
Elementary level


In this lesson, students will learn how to read for gist and specific information in the context of personal profiles. First, they will discuss where they stay when they travel which will be a lead-in to gist reading. After reading for gist ss in pairs will answer multiply questions. Then they will read 2 personal information profiles for detailed information followed by True/False sentences. If there's enough time left students will fill in their own personal information to profile templates.


Main Aims

  • to give sts practice in reading for gist and specific information in the context of personal information profiles

Subsidiary Aims

  • to give sts semi-controlled written practice of the present simple


Lead-in (6-7 minutes) • to set the context for the lesson

I will draw a hotel, a campsite and friends/family on the WB in order to elicit vocabulary from the students. I will tell them where I stay when I travel. I will ask one of the students where he stays when he travels and then ask sts to work in pairs asking each other questions. After that, I will ask some of the students what they have learnt about their partners.

Reading for gist (6-7 minutes) • to give students practice in reading for main idea

I will write on the board: and ask students what they think this website might be about. Then I will give them time to read the introduction and answer multiply choice questions in pairs. After that, I will check the answers with the whole class.

reading for specific information (18-20 minutes) • to give students practice in detailed reading

Before reading I will explain who Melek and Fiona are. I will give students time to read then I will ask them to answer True/False questions in pairs. I will check the answer with the whole class. In feedback I will also ask CCQs in order to check if they understand some vocabulary e.g. architect.

Writing (12-15 minutes) • to practice some of learnt vocabulary and Present Simple Tense

I will give sts a profile template with the sentence stems, I will get them to complete their profiles. If there's enough time I will get sts to stick their profiles on the wall around the room. Then they can walk around and read different profiles
