engaged in the class tasks.

LITERACY & NUMERACY:
What are the essential aspects of literacy/numeracy in this lesson?
Some of stdents may find the reading of a long passage of writing hard and they may lose concentration easily when
doing this. By going through the case study slowly, I will hopefully prevent them loosing concentration and they will
be able to complete the task in good time and successfully.
