Want to significantly improve speaking and listening skills? This series of well-resourced lessons is just the ticket. Explores: banning of the burqa, animal testing, death penalty, high-earning athletes, the impact of religion, video games and nuclear weapons and more! An ofsted HMI said of one of the lessons: "An outstanding example of a teacher making a lesson fun and highly successful was in a religious education lesson where students were debating whether religion was a good or bad thing. The teacher made it absolutely clear how students needed to behave in order to be successful. He used time limits and targeted questioning exceptionally well to keep the pace of learning for all students brisk. Students made outstanding progress and did not realise how hard they were working."
