The Right To Die

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 all students as it deals with the subject of death and euthanasia.

Do people have the right to choose when to die?

When is this appropriate?

In this lesson, we are looking at euthanasia and the right to die. There are clinics available now where people can choose to die.

The students will read an account from someone who decided to do this. Then go through several exercises to help them talk and discuss euthanasia at length.

This is a very sensitive subject but one that could lead to much discussion in the English 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.

The lesson comes complete with:

  • Reading Exercise
  • Reading Comprehension Questions
  • Essential Vocabulary
  • Discussion Questions
  • Bucket List: an exercise about things people would like to do before they die
  • Debate: Why Euthanasia Is A Good Idea
  • 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.
