Do You Like Your Body? – a Talking Points Lesson Plan for English Reading & Speaking
This is part of the Talking Points lesson series for Intermediate to Advanced students.
Due to the internet and some peoples’ desire to show pictures of themselves on Instagram, we now live in an age where people desire to have the perfect body.
Plastic surgery is rising all the time, and images online remind us of our imperfections.
Are we too obsessed with looking good?
This lesson plan is all about body aesthetics. The reading follows a young man and his obsession with looking his best.
Is it worth it? And why not just accept ourselves for the way we are?
This lesson plan is sure to cause much conversation and debate in your English or ESL class. Students’ views may become very heated as they discuss why having the perfect body is so important – or not important at all.
The lesson comes complete with:
• a 500-word article
• a table of essential vocabulary
• a big list of questions for discussion
Start the class with the three opening questions and then do the reading. Then you can go through all the vocabulary – or set it as homework for the students to do later.
Then there is a big list of questions that are designed to get your students talking.
It comes in easy to use PDF format, ideal for printing for your needs. Use it again and again for your English/ESL classes.
