Are you teaching essay writing? Are you looking for a current, controversial topic? Are you looking for creative, meaningful and intellectually demanding language tasks before writing a persuasive essay? This is your resource! I developed this for my High School English Language learners who really enjoyed learning about Driver-less vehicles.
Before writing a persuasive essay, students need to do an extensive amount of reading to gain an understanding and knowledge. Why not visualizing what you just watched on Youtube by using the technique visual sketchnoting? Or Why not creating a talk show on the iPad using an app to express your ideas on the ethical dilemmas of autonomous vehicles?
This package gives you 3 Assignment handouts:
Assignment Part A:
Create sketchnotes on "How Driverless Cars Will Change our Cities?" (Includes Self-Assessment Rubric). If you are not familiar with the technique of visual sketchnoting, see my resource below:)!
Assignment Part B:
Record a Talk Show on the Ethical Dilemmas of Self-Driving cars using the iPad (Includes Self-Assessment Rubric).
Assignment Part C:
Write a Persuasive Essay - Guide to take a Stand before writing (Essay Rubric included)
* Teacher Manual
* Hyperlinks to reading and Youtube video resources related to the topic!
