Ss look at pictures of murdered kings and presidents on the board and discuss in pairs if they know any of them trying to guess why were they murdered?
Ss look at pictures on the board and and look at the vocabulary on the desk in the middle of the class and stick each word to its suitable pictures. Ss read the words and the teacher stands behind the Ss and repeat after them. If the Ss want to listen to the pronunciation of the word once more from the teacher repeat the same word once more and the teacher say it again. If the teacher hear any mispronunciation, asks the Ss to read again. Will you write? Will you read? Will you stick the pictures? Do you work in pairs? Do you work individually? Do you read the words?
Ss skim the paragraphs on the wall about king Tut and look at the given headings and match each one with its suitable paragraph. Ss check their answers in pairs and then with the whole class. The teacher writes the answers on the board.
Ss scan the text individually and answer the gap fill activity. Ss check their answers with a partner then with the whole class.
Ss will read the text quickly for the last time to answer the multiple choice questions. Ss answer individually and check their answers in pairs. The teacher monitors the Ss to check their answers, if there are a lot of mistakes, the teacher write the Ss answer on the board.
Ss sit in pairs and look at the questions on the board, think of answers to these questions and speak about it with partners. Ss could invent any murder if they do not know any real murder. Ss exchange their partner and tell him/her about his/her story.
