These slides take students through a English Conversation class based around the topic of 'Heroes'. The goal is to engage students in activities connected around this topic and encourage practice of their listening and speaking skills.
The activities are as follows
Is this person/job a hero? Why/Why not?
2. WHAT IS A HERO?
Create your own definition of a hero
3. MY HERO
Think of a hero and interview another student then report to the class (The PowerPoint has been designed to have students interview 8 different students -controlled by inbuilt 30-second timers)- then the whole class is tested on what they can remember about individual students' heroes).
Students play 'Taboo' where a member from each group needs to guess (without looking at the board) by listening to clues from their group. The group can not use the 'taboo words' written on the slides. After the hero has been guessed, a brief discussion about why this person is/is not a hero can be conducted.
