How ignorant are you about current world? This lesson focuses on answering that question as well as compares the ignorance levels of people from different countries. It is based on a video by a father-son duo Hans and Ola Rosling who fight the ignorance that’s perpetuated across societies.
During the lesson students will learn new vocabulary, create short definitions based on sample sentences and then match these new words with their collocation in a classic “trios” exercise.
Moreover, there is a discussion section that encourages students to talk about such issues as media, teaching at schools and the level of knowledge across the world.
If you want to watch this TED talk with your students, please keep in mind that it’s almost 20 minutes long so manage the class time well.
