People are becoming more and more concerned about the food we eat and the way in which it's grown or raised, and processed. After completing this lesson about the largest beef recall in US history, you may become one of the worried people! This is a very engaging lesson that will undoubtedly spark authentic conversation and debate among your students. Enjoy!
This lesson is appropriate for adult English language learners at the advanced level. It has a discussion phase (to activate schema and build background knowledge), vocabulary study phase, a reading/listening passage followed by reading/listening comprehension questions, and finally some additional role-play activities. I have used it in individual and large group settings, and found it to be a very flexible and useful resource.
