Product Description

This presentation contains a 44 slide PowerPoint lesson in editable PPT format with an activity, a worksheet and teacher’s notes.

Lying is giving information while believing it to be untrue with the intent to deceive.

We all lie, the amazing part is how much we lie and are lied to everyday as a part of social interaction, and how we justify it to ourselves.

We are all taught that lying is bad and that we shouldn’t do it. But, what about white lies? In the old testament, there’s a story in which God tells a white lie, whether it’s a cautionary tale, an ancient text editing error, or one of God’s mysterious ways – it’s still an interesting example for the way white lies have always been viewed as “acceptable under certain circumstances”.

Blue lies are just as interesting. Most of us are willing to forgive lies that are told for the benefit of the “group”, in fact, we admire this practice and we reward its performers (spies, politicians…).

This lesson is a great conversation teaser, for both ESL classes and high school students.

This lesson is a part of a two-lesson group:

The first: Lies – black, blue and white: discusses types of lies and the occasion in which they are told.

The second: liars – of all colors: discusses the types of people who lie, their methods and techniques and how to spot them.

This lesson contains:

♚ The components of a lie

♚ What is a white lie?

♚What is a “Blue lie”?

♚ Can you tell when someone is lying to you?

♚ How much do we actually lie?
♚ Children and lies

♚ Activity – the lies we tell on a Daily Basis

I loved making and teaching this lesson, I hope that you and your students enjoy it too.

The products in this shop are all produces by me, a dyslexic teacher (hence the name).

I’m painfully aware of what seems to be very poor judgment of career choice on my part, and to be honest, a large part of this choice was to stick it to Mrs. Jacobson that said that there’s no place for the likes of me with my “pretend excuses” for misspelling every third word, in any self-respecting educational institution, so naturally I had to become a teacher.

For more than 25 years I’ve been teaching ESL adult classes and cross culture business classes, and much like other challenged individuals who go through life with one hand tied behind their backs, I try to make up for what I lack in the spelling department with hours of research, high quality graphics, humour, passion and love for what I do.

The fact that I can actually do this job is first and foremost a testimony of open mindedness (or desperation brought on by the long economic recession) of the schools that hired me over the years despite my very evident drawback, by the parents that tolerated grammar mishaps and most of all by my beautiful students who have learned to “always double check their teacher” and have come up with the sweetest, most heart-warming and diplomatic ways of pointing out my spelling errors (putting to great use their newly acquired conditional capacity: “I’m not sure, but, I think I might have spotted…”)

Over the years, I've personally contributed to the economic success of countless computer ‘correcting program’ available on the market (you're welcome Grammarly) and on top of that my lessons are proof read by wonderful, kind (and slightly horrified) TPT teachers, BUT there are always some errors that slip by us (mostly because I keep messing with the lessons after they've been proofread).

• If you feel offended by the existence of spelling errors in what is supposed to be a teaching tool

• or if you, much like Mrs. Jacobson, think the dyslexia is just an excuse not to try harder


For all you tree hugging, open-minded individuals, who are looking for challenging, original material for your conversation classes and can see beyond the possible grammar errors (maybe even use it as a teaching opportunity “An extra point for the first student who can spot the obvious grammar error that I always tell you never to make”. Plus, you know that wonderful, warm, superior feeling you get when you catch a colleague’s error - well these moments are included with the product – no extra charge)


All my lessons are in an editable PPT format and you get a free product if you send me the errors to correct.

I hope this product delivers everything you hoped for and more.


Thank you!
