To provide detailed reading practice using a text about Murphy law in the context of life attitude and related to grammar of if clause
To provide gist reading practice using a text about Murphy law in the context of life
Procedure (45-55 minutes)
I start with asking a question for example : If you are waiting in a long line at the supermarket and you change to a different line what will happen ? then they will respond one by one and they will be attracted to the subject.
I ask them to read two paragraphs for themselves and tell me who was Murphy ? a small answer would be efficient.
I want them to read the passage one more time but this time more carefully and answer the question about the concept of this law .
on the same page there is a matching activity which presents some examples about Murphy's law and life experiences which helps them to understand it pretty well.
I will keep on the process by a free discussion about what will they do if any of these things happen to them ? or do they have any same experience ?
