In this class we will look at controversial news articles and have a discussion about it. We will share our thoughts, feelings and opinions about the topic. You will have a chance to give your reasoning behind your stance and possibly persuade others to agree with you in a friendly debate.
Before each session, I will provide students with two articles that we will review in the class. This allows students to read the articles in advance, write down questions and engage in class discussions better.
In the class we will firstly focus on reviewing the articles, along with answering students' questions regarding vocabulary and reading comprehension. Then we will work in pairs to discuss the assigned questions. We might have interesting activities, too.
Then we will come back to the round table and share our thoughts regarding the news stories, I will initiate student group discussions and debates relating to the article topics by asking follow up questions and providing different viewpoints.
