Students get some phrases to react to different things that might make them be scared. They comment on them using the vocabulary that they are given.

 Students see the video, comment upon it and confirm their hypothesis.

Activity 5 (20’):

Students get some slips of paper with different situations of risk. They are asked to say how they would react to those situations. After that, in groups of 3. They have to choose one of their situations and propose an alternative ending to it.

What technology, media or props did you use? (Internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)

We used slips of paper with prompts.

We used Youtube and a PowerPoint presentation

What worked well in this class? What did not work?

Most of the students really enjoyed the class since it somehow brought some suspense. Also, they could be creative with the stories at the end which they enjoyed a lot.

Some of the students are not into scary things, so they felt a bit uncomfortable at times, but I gave a disclaimer at the beginning of the class and they were fine with it.
