2 Give Ss plenty of time to work independently, read the passage, and understand the main ideas. Then divide the class into groups of four or five to discuss the questions. T goes round the class to give support if necessary.
After some time, elicit ideas from the groups. Then one student from each group presents their ideas to the class. T gives comments on their clarity, language and fluency, (but not on their ‘positive’ or ‘negative’ ideas).
