The 2016 US Presidential Election was an election like no other. Eight years of the US shifting away from its former self which started with the Great Recession of 2008 allowed a newcomer to politics to the office of the presidency. On the heels of Trump’s landmark victory, it seems like every celebrity wants to run for political office. Your students will enjoy discussing how Trump has served as an example for others to follow to become a high-ranking and powerful politician in this highly engaging lesson!
This lesson is appropriate for adult English language learners at the advanced level but is adaptable for upper-intermediate learners. It has a discussion phase, vocabulary study phase, a reading/listening passage followed by reading/listening comprehension questions, and finally some additional conversation and role-play activities. I have used it in individual and large group settings and found it to be a very flexible and useful resource.
