The news reportSo I am not going to talk about something new, I am just going to write about what I did during a session and maybe someone will read something interesting and do the same in one of their sessions.
Down to business:
Choose a news report that has some drama: I chose an article about a Chinese university student who tried to bribe his university professor and dropped a firearm while doing so (you may know the story).
It is easier to attract the reader when the story has to do with money and guns!
- Prime well:
- Advance organisers:
- Pre teaching vocabulary:
- Q & A:
- Pair work:
- Jigsaw reading:
Of course turning a news report into a whole session takes time but it will be very rewarding for the learners.
