Notes from Allan, who capitalizes not his own name but instead every word of his emails like some kind of reverse e.e. cummings:

Is Other Me a sub-par birthday diver? It would seem so.

From: Astrid
Subject: Samantha birthday party

Dear Sarah,
Only 5 days to go to Sam’s birthday party.
As I have been unable to contact you for the last month and a half, I will send this last e-mail to you.

Could you please confirm that you are going to come and dive with Sam and her friends. RSVP By tomorrow evening, please.

I will have to organize a different diver in case you do not respond to this email. I can not let my girl be so

More from Jane. Why is Other Me woozy??

From: Jane
Subject: Lesson planning

I’ve just realised that you and I should have been planning this lunch time but I imagine you were still feeling woozy. Anyway I have found a lesson which is quite straightforward to plan so you should be able to look at it over the weekend. I have scanned the pages for you.

I suggest the following

Some engage question related to technology

If you look at the lexis on page 98 you might want to update it or make it harder or even pre-teach lexis from the reading

You can do the questions on page 98 or come up with a gist question of your own

On page 99 you have the reading and the questions they need to answer for detail reading.

If you look on page 100 there is a “language in chunks” section which has some nice phrases to teach

As an activate you could have them agreeing or disagreeing with the text

I hope this is of use to you and that you don’t overdo it this weekend. Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll try and answer them before I go off today.
