Knife crime in some parts of the world is out of control.

Young men are carrying knives to defend themselves in cities. Many young men are killed with these same knives.

Why is this happening? And what can we do about it?

This lesson examines the growing phenomenon of knife crime. Your students will have the opportunity to read an account of knife crime in the city and to discuss the issues of knife crime in the class.

Your students will find this topic highly engaging and all the exercises will be great fun for them. It should definitely create much debate and talking time in your English or ESL class.

Start the class with the three opening questions and then do the reading.

Follow that with the reading comprehension questions.

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.

After that, you can do all the other exercises in whatever order you wish.
