Although science has concluded multitasking is harmful and actually makes us less productive, we all still do it. Watch your students have lots of fun discussing multitasking in this highly engaging lesson. Enjoy!
This lesson is appropriate for adult English learners at the high-intermediate level, but is adaptable for other levels as well. 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 and a writing exercise. I have used it in individual and large group settings, and found it to be a very flexible and useful resource.
