My classes are of mixed abilities so the lessons are differentiated to cater to mixed cohorts. There are 2 / 3 lessons per question. Style of lessons I like to teach using cultural pop references to help engage my students and underpin the skills needed in order to pass the exam.

I usually start with a group task as a starter and a long independent writing task, based from the exam, as the final task and a short self assessment or peers assessment plenary. My topics in this bundle range from light hearted topics such as the music of Amy Winehouse and Janis Joplin, Dicaprio vrs Kanye - a top seller , to lesson which underpin more serious social issues and British values such as the UK pet trade in Monkeys and Sophie Lancaster story.

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.

Note: My personal way of using the oral presentation project is that I get students in pairs to work on the project and present to the rest of the class. I ask students to take notes because afterwards I give them a quiz on everything which was presented… not necessarily for a final “official” grade but a final “unofficial” assessment of who has acquired the most knowledge… students love the challenge of trying to beat their classmates and no stress about it showing up on their report card… I usually give a few bonus points to my first three pairs who got the most correct answers on the final quiz.
