   Steps in Designing a Tryout Unit
1. Identifying suitable reading materials of a variety of text
   types to explore their connections with other KLAs and to
   facilitate reading across the curriculum

2. Identifying a theme that provides links between textbook
   units and the reading materials

3. Designing focus questions to explore the message conveyed
   and to provide linkage between different reading materials

4. Designing activities for students to understand and interact
   with the content of the book, to develop reading skills and
   strategies, to enhance their vocabulary building strategies
   and to study the language features of the text types

5. Designing cross-KLA activities that help students
   connect their learning experiences in the ELE KLA
   and other KLAs
