Introduction

This lesson is about modern technology and the effect it has had on people’s lives in recent years. A reading text provides the main focus of the lesson and the skill of speed-reading is developed. Students are encouraged to identify the meaning of vocabulary within the context and to focus on the pronunciation of regular past simple verbs. They are then given the opportunity to activate this language through a speaking or writing activity. The resources provide various opportunities for differentiation, often through the use of technology.
