The Death Penalty USA / Capital Punishment USA

The Death Penalty USA / Capital Punishment USA

Power point about the death penalty/capital punishment in the U.S. This is meant to encourage students to think/pair up and discuss during a certain amount of time and then share their thoughts when time is up. You may want to download a new sound at the end of the countdown as mine has probably vanished (I think I used ) . You ought to choose the same sound all throughout your power point so it doesn’t become too much of a distraction. I am also including four informational sheets focusing on the five methods of capital punishment in the U.S. Make sure that your audience can cope with the details about the methods of execution, which are quite horrible. There are many ways of using these sheets, whether you decide to just share the information orally (and maybe simplify), or whether you want to assign groups and have them work on some Jigsaw Puzzle task (cooperative learning). The power point includes questions about statistics, methods, vocabulary and personal opinions. I have only tested this material once in Norway with 15-year-old pupils who have ESL, but it worked quite well as they were engaged and fascinated. Feel free to download and modify as it suits you.
