To provide students with different reading skills using gist reading, scan reading and close reading.
To expand SS vocabulary
To provide speaking practice
Procedure (25-47 minutes)
Ask the SS what an 'opposite' is. İf students don't know, use the examples given in page 28 to help explain. Using visual aids (pictures on the board) elicit responses as to what the new vocabulary could be.
Have SS in two groups of three and give them the cut outs, they will match the opposite meaning words.
Ask SS to write down 3 things they assume happen in daily life in Britain.
Using Page 28, SS will gist read 'Life İn Britain' and see if their assumptions are accurate. Tell SS they do not have to read every word, but just check to see if their assumptions are correct. Students will work in pairs.
Have SS work in pairs or small groups to fill in the blanks in 'Life İn Britain' using the new vocabulary learned. Have SS tell each other (group talking to other group) what their answers are. For example ''Group one, tell Group two what school life is like in Britain''
Give SS 5 questions about the text to answer from reading it again. Have a self-check of the answers (answer key on whiteboard)
