3rd TERM – 3 rd ESO

DEBATE PROJECT

Task 1.- Talk in pairs about the pros and cons of living in a  CITY or COUNTRY LIFE (have a look at vocabulary from unit 5). THESE expressions may help you.

Task 2.- You are expected now to:

1.- join in groups (4/5 people) and choose a current issue to develop (some help could be at the Real World Issues at the end of your book or FASHION (unit 4 from their students book) , TECHONOLOGY/ MOBILE PHONES / IPADS… (unit 6) & TEEN TROUBLES (unit 9)

2.- prepare a class debate (tell me the chosen issue): you must include videos about the issue, documentaries or newspaper articles, images… Remember to add a list with all the vocabulary your classmates might need to talk about it.

When the presentation day arrives, each group will expose its issue WITHOUT SHOWING THE PROS & CONS. Then each member must join a different mini-group and guide them in their debate.

3.- looking for guides to be taken into account in an oral presentation (non-verbal communication, clothes, eye contact, audience proximity…) or when debating

Some examples:

Mobile Phones (do not add the PROS and cons SLIDE as done in this presentation!!)

Abortion

Homosexuality

Choose your issue to prepare a debate in class. LINK
