I Answer one question

1. Develop a Lesson Plan for 40 minutes duration on the passage given below to teach the pupils of Standard X

Tea-shops in Malayalam Cinema

The small wayside restaurants located mostly in villages and popularly known as ‘tea-shops’, played a crucial role in making  panthibhojanam a way of life in Kerala. The tea-shops were the products of two important social changes that were taking place at the time. One was the increasing freedom of movement in public spaces-acquired by the depressed sections of society. The other was the emergence of an economy based on money. The tea-shop came into existence at a time when wages began to be paid in cash, rather than in kind. It was also the time when people were beginning to travel beyond the boundaries of their villages to sell what they produced in their fields or small workshops.
