In his book When: The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing, Daniel Pink shares research that can help us time our daily lives in order to enjoy better outcomes. Your students will have fun discussing Daniel Pink's work on the science of perfect timing in this highly engaging lesson. Enjoy!
This lesson is appropriate for adult English learners at the advanced 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 link to Daniel Pink's NPR interview. I have used it in individual and large group settings, and found it to be a very flexible and useful resource.
