as they have been discussed during the first term and has been used ever since. The teacher will then divide the learners into groups of 5-6 and hand out a blank page to each group. On the page, each group will be required to prepare 4 questions which they would like to ask about the text they have read. The teacher will assign a cognitive level to each group and ask them to use only from those terms in that specific cognitive level, to compose their questions. After each group has prepared their questions, all the questions will be compiled together as a single comprehension test. Learners will then be asked to discuss the answers in their groups. Furthermore, the learners will then be asked to decide on a speaker who will share their responses to the rest of the class. Each group will be given an opportunity to present their responses. After the learners have completed their own comprehension test which they have compiled, they will be asked to remain in their groups and be asked to transfer information in the text, to a graphic organiser. The teacher will draw a “T” table on the board. The left column’s heading will be named “Negative uses” and the right column’s heading will be named “Positive uses”. The teacher will then ask them to copy the table onto their A3 papers and tabulate the negative uses of video games and the positive uses of video games which they have extracted from the text. The teacher will then write one example onto her own table on the board: under the ‘Negative’ column will read “ violence in video games ” and under the ‘Positive’ column will read “Learn ing benefits of video gaming .” Learners will then be asked to say which of their columns has the most points and to say why they think that

9 | P a g e column has been filled up the most, rather than the other column. These questions will be discussed in a whole-class discussion which concludes the lesson. The comprehension test is not a formal comprehension test but more so to allow them to demonstrate an ability to think critically about the text while giving input to their fellow groupmates. They are also able to ask questions about what they do not understand about the text and answer it themselves. The “T” table will allow for learners to be able to extract relevant information from th e text for the purposes of comparing pros and cons. The teacher will walk around the class and observe continually as discussions are taking place. The teacher will guide the learners in their group discussions and also lead the class discussion. The teacher will also hold casual conversations with single groups at a time to check their progress during their discussions.
