This is a reading comprehension about improving the condition of women in the world. It targets two important skills:
1. kimming: reading for the main ideas.
2. scanning: reading for specific details.
This material is systematic and follows the three steps of effective and active reading:
a. pre-reading: the teacher could use the pictures and the title to stimulate the learners' thinking.
b. while-reading: activities from A to D in which the learners would do some matching and gap filling.
c. post-reading: this reading material is a good start to discuss the situation of women around the world and then move to the learners' context
