Goal of the class:
To learn vocabulary about technological progress
To share opinions about love in our society
How did you structure the class?
Warm-up: when I tell them “progress”, what do they think about? What is for them the greatest invention of the 20th century?
1. I give them two pages of vocabulary related to the progress. In pairs, they have to pick up two: one they know and why they picked this one ; one they don’t know and I explain them what does it mean. They must then create a sentence with three of those words.
2. We read an article together about those technologies which have replaced former daily objects. We commented this article together. In pairs: as it was written in 2003, can we say the article was right? What other items have been replaced since then? Do they remember using one the old ones in the article?
3. I give a list of items. In pairs, they have to discuss and choose 5 without which they could leave in this world. How can those be replaced?
4. What could be the next inventions that will change the world?
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
They were really talkative. We had a great conversation, and everyone was involved in it. I planned many other activities, but those took all the class.
