This book is a collection of lesson plans that I developed between September and December of 2018.
The lesson plans were inspired by the work I have been doing on developing empathy and the creative use of images to help activate students’ sense of empathy.
I’ve had a long love of using images in the language classroom and see them as a key ingredient in sparking students’ imagination as well as supplying a window into a much wider and often very different world.
I have always found that images have the power get students speaking and particularly images of people can stimulate their curiosity and help to produce a wide range of questions.
The tasks and activities in these lesson plans should also help to develop your students’ vocabulary and fluency.
Each of the lesson plans includes a digital presentation that you can use with a data projector or you can share with students so that they can access the materials on their own devices.
This book contains the following ten plans:
1. A Girl by the Window
2. The Crime
3. Dreams and Ambitions
4. Friendship and Feet
5. The Bear in Bed
6. The Cabin
7. The Girl and the Tiger
8. The Path
9. The Statue
10. The Window
I hope you and your students enjoy these materials and that they help to make students a little more tolerant and understanding of the world around them.
