Working Class Hero: a song and discussion lesson about school, class division and 'the system'

Working Class Hero: a song and discussion lesson about school, class division and 'the system'

This is a thought-provoking advanced ESL lesson plan for teens and adults about school, working life, class differences, getting a job and societal pressure. Good for a debate class and includes discussion questions. The students will listen to a John Lennon song and discuss. As an ESL activity, this includes a listening activity where students have puzzle pieces and must stick them together as they listen to the words of the song. Once completed correctly, the reverse of the puzzle shows a fat banker giving crumbs to the poor. Can also be used for a sociology class.

OCCUPATIONS Memory cards

OCCUPATIONS Memory cards

A memory game is a funny way to learn vocabulary. School year is almost over in most of the countries. Have students review occupations while having fun, matching pictures with the correct words.Comments are appreciated. Playing the Game The first player chooses a card and carefully turns it over. Be sure not to bother the surrounding cards. The player then selects another card and turns it over. If the two cards are a matching pair for example two Jacks then they take the two cards and start a stack. The player is awarded another turn for making a match and goes again. If the cards are not a match they are turned back over and it is now the next players turn. The next player chooses their first card and turns it over. If it is a match for one of the cards the previous player turned over then they try to remember where that matching card was and turn it. If they are successful at making a match they place the cards in their stack and choose another card. If the first card turned over was not a match for one previously turned over the player selects another card in an attempt of making a pair. If they are unsuccessful in making a match they flip the cards back over and play is passed to the next player. A players turn is not over until they are unable to make a matching pair. The game continues in this fashion until all the cards are played.
