Goal of the class:
Learn new words that related to drugs.
Talk about your opinion about Marihuana legalization.
Structure of the class (unless you attach your lesson plan below):
1 Chinese song < Say No to porn, gambling and drugs>
2 Warm up activity: Jeopardy ( In this game, everyone writes down ten answers to questions about themselves. After writing down the answers, people have to form pairs or small groups and try to find out what the questions are.)
3. Drugs (Introduce the topic by talking about Chinese character “毒” which means poisonous. Then talk about getting poisoned. At last talk about drugs. Is there drug problem on campus? What kind of drugs are popular? Why? Which school has the most serious problem about drug?)
4.What is your opinion about Marihuana legalization?
What technology, media or props did you use? (satellite tv, internet resources, playmobiles, etc.)
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
Students talked for the first half an hour and I was just keeping the conversation alive. I felt they were more engaged with this issue since it is something that they have experiences with.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
There is another song that I wanted to show for students. However, I do not have enough time. I need to learn to manage time better.
