Teaching Practice 7
To provide practice in reading and answering gist and specific detail questions within the context of health.
Speaking about personal health problems and the treatments.
Vocabulary on discoveries of modern medicine.
Procedure (34-42 minutes)
I will talk about some of my health problems and some medicine I used to set the context.
I will give Ss a matching activity to form questions asking about treatment/medicine, and then I will ask them to ask those questions each other in pairs and talk about them.
I will show some pictures to teach the vocabulary and try to elicit the words from the Ss. I will ask some CCQs on the new vocab.
Ss will be skimming the reading text on the most important discoveries of modern medicine to put the illustrations in the correct order.
Ss will be reading for details in order to find the correct name of the discovery for each statement on the HOs. They will work in pairs, and after they finish, there will be a feedback to justify their answers.
I will ask to the Ss to discuss in pairs, which discovery is the most important one and why they think so. They will discuss and decide on the most important discovery in pairs first then I will ask them to join other pairs and to come up with one idea. At the end I will tell them the answer.
