Reading of an article about a woman who was asking for euthanasia in France.
How did you pick this theme or topic?
( First they asked me questions about Universities in France so I talked for 20 minutes)
This is a current issue in France and I could find articles that were not hard to read.
How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
First we played a game for vocabulary about health. I gave them a list of “words” but the letters were in disorder and they had to find what the words were. Then we brainstormed a little bit.
I introduced the article, and then we read it together. I checked the important words, or the ones they did not know.
Then I gave them a list of questions and divided them into small groups to discuss them.
How did students react?
The topic was not funny at all, but they seemed to be really interested, especially because the article I gave them opened up on what happened next, so they could try to guess. Then I told them what really happened. It made them really involved.
Did they engage with each other and you?
