Task 2: SS fill the blanks with the information in the video. Ask some CCQs about the tasks. Start the video. Let ss watch it all. When it finishes, arrange the groups to check their own answers (2-3 minutes). Start the video again. This time, sometimes teacher may stop the video where there is an important information. These pauses do not have to be about the questions. What it finishes, let ss check their answers again. Give the answer as w/c. You may show some parts of the video again for the answers. If ss make comments on the video, teacher lets them do it for a 4-5 minutes as a w/c discussion.
