Teenage Gangs

a Talking Points lesson for English reading, speaking, vocabulary and writing

This is part of the Talking Points 3 lesson series for Intermediate to Advanced students.

This may not be suitable for younger students.

Teenage gangs are an inevitable part of growing up.

Joining a gang of your teenage peers is a rites of passage for many of us.

In this lesson, we take a close look at these gangs and the effect it can have on a young person’s life. We can also look at the difference in cultures between teenage life in one country and another.

This is a great opportunity for you to talk about what it means to be a teenager. Your students can compare their own teenage lives with that of other teenagers from another country.

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.

The lesson comes complete with:

  • Reading Exercise
  • Reading Comprehension Questions
  • Essential Vocabulary
  • Discussion Questions
  • Teenagers: the difference between two countries
  • Teenage Gangs: the pros and cons
  • Debate: Teenage Gangs
  • Role Play
  • Writing Exercise

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.

It comes in easy to use PDF format, ideal for printing for your needs. Use it again and again for your English/ESL classes.
