This new lesson plan is based on the TED Talk entitled “How to speak up for yourself” by Adam Galinsky. The speaker gives us a hint how to speak up even if it is really difficult.
The lesson starts with three phrases used to express one’s opinion and a short warm-up activity based on the questions that Adam Galinsky mentions in his speech. Then, students learn some vocabulary from the talk – they have two exercises to help them acquire new words. The lesson finishes with a short discussion. The questions are based on the speaker’s ideas as well as the students’ general view on the issue.
The talk lasts 15 minutes, so probably it is more reasonable to make students watch it at home. The lesson plan, on the other hand, is prepared for around 30 minutes.
