I had had enough of the book, and was working through it too quickly anyway, so I had to come up with a few ideas.
I decided to do some reading workshops, and I wanted to make it as student centred as possible, and get them working together.
I also felt that I needed to give the students something that would really push them, as I worried the lessons from the book were sometimes too easy.
I took two reading texts from http://www.breakingnewsenglish.com/, one on chocolate/diet, and one on alcohol (binge drinking). I used the exercises given at the website, but had to make some of them slightly easier.
I made a 3 or 4 page pack for each student, which included the text and the questions. I split them into two groups (I had already organised the groups so I could have some weak students with the stronger ones, and separate those who would take over the lesson) and set them to work.
I was really pleased with how it went. It tok them the whole lesson to do all the exercises (true/false, synomyms, discussion points etc.) and there was a lot of discussion which I felt also benefitted them, as they were talking about real life issues. Had they finished half way through, I had made enough copies for them to swap texts and do the other one.
