Reading
Directions: Read the following passage carefully. Everyday, many consignments of meat, milk and other products of animal origin are traded or imported in the European Union. In order that all such consignments can be moved safely avoiding the transmission of diseases to either the public or other animals, the EU has laid down a wide range of animal health requirements.

The general animal health requirements that are applicable to both imports and intracommunity trade are laid down in specific Council Directives. In general, the requirements for intra-community trade are harmonized between the Member States. To ensure harmonisation is maintained, meat, milk and other products of animal origin must be produced in an authorised establishment usually under the supervision of an official veterinarian. Further random checks on the products may also be carried out at the final destination. In addition to the general health requirements, specific requirements for animal products may also be required which take account of such issues as evolving disease situations in the Member States. In such instances, specific animal health certificates may be required. For imports, additional requirements are set out in specific Commission Decisions. These lay down health certificates which must accompany all imports and which must be signed by an official veterinarian of the competent authority of the exporting third country guaranteeing that the conditions for import into the EU have been met. On arrival in the EU, the animal products and the accompanying certificates must be verified and checked by EU official veterinarians at a designated Border Inspection Post (BIP). Further checks on the products may also be carried out at the final destination. (More details on the requirements for intra-community trade and imports for animal products can be found under the menu above.)

LESSON:
Aim: Grade: Adult Subject: Prepared by: Marijana Nikolic

Objectives:

Students will be able to understand, pronounce, and use the words in the vocabulary list below. Students will be able to demonstrate comprehension of the passage by answering questions which require basic understanding and interpretation of the content.

Standards addressed: Vocabulary:


1. accompany 2. account 3. arrival 4. verified 5. designated 6. evolving 7. checked 8. maintained 9. ensure 10. avoiding 11. authority 12. range

Activity Description Differentiation Guide Assessment


Introduction of vocabulary Introduce the new words from the vocabulary list in above (see Objectives) by modeling pronunciation, individual and choral repitition. Review defintions Sample Questioning:

In your own words, explain the definition. Who can think of a time when this word might be used? Can you use this word in a sentence? Whats the antonym (opposite) of this word?

When appropriate, give different types of learners an opportunity to write down the new words, associate a visual image to cue to understanding of the word, or develop a physical action to increase the students ability to remember the new words. ALL Students will be able to increase their understanding and awareness of the new words.SOME Students will be asked to orally demonstrate knowledge of new words.

Reading & Comprehension Questions Students will read the passages of and demonstrate comprehension of the content by question. Depending on the population: Read the entire passage aloud, to model phrasing and fluency. Pause at key moments and model good reading strategies through a think aloud. Ask students to volunteer to read parts of the passage aloud. Instruct students to read the passage silently and complete the questions independently, while working with students who need more literacy help. Ask students to complete the questions by doing Think, Pair, Share ALL Students will read the passage or follow along as the passage is read. ALL Students will strive to demonstrate comprehension of the passage by answering the questions. SOME students will be given an opportunity to share their answer aloud.

Grammar Students will review the usage of and then identify simple_present in sentences from the reading. Students will write 5 original sentences using simple_present. Give students need time to work on completing their own practice sentences for the grammatical structure. Invite early finishers to put their sentences on the board or challenge them to not only use the grammar structure, but also include the vocabulary from the lesson in their sentences. ALL Students will be able to demonstrate an increased mastery of the grammar structure by independently writing sentences that correctly employ simple_present.

Word Building: Roots and Stems Students will be encouraged to take away a word-attack strategy from this lesson by reviewing -y, which was used in the reading. Students may benefit from having time to complete this portion of the worksheet individually or in pairs. ALL students will be able to recognize the suffix -y and understand The suffix y changes a noun into an adjective, like dirty..

Practicing New Vocabulary Students will be given a chance to practice applying new vocabulary by completing cloze sentences. Students complete this section of worksheet independently prior to group review of the answers. When appropriate, have students work in pairs or small groups. ALL Students will increase their familiarity with the new vocabulary and their ability to successfully use these new words in context. Students who get more than two of the cloze sentences wrong should be asked do other reinforcement (i.e. flash cards).

Summary

Instructor will review the objectives of the lesson with the class a whole. The summary can be completed as quick discussion or by asking student to summarize in their notes. Example quick assess: 3 new pieces of information from text, 2 new words, 1 question about what they learned.
