PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This presentation contains a 52 slide PowerPoint lesson in editable PPT format with a work paper that accompany the lesson and a role play activity.
This lesson is all about letting loose and giving in to one of the most basic of human needs: ‘the need to blame someone else’.
Some great research in social psychology was done on the subject of “the fundamental attribution error”, and why we engage in it with such vigor, But the bottom line is: it’s in our nature, we do it all the time, it’s common in all cultures and hey… it’s very liberating!
- We establish that we like to blame other people, and that it is something that is rooted deep in our character
- Explain why we blame others for things that we wouldn’t blame ourselves for
- Introduce the research which explains why we jump to conclusions so quickly
- The 4 reasons for ‘the attribution error’
- Learn how to defend ourselves with passion from false accusations and deflect the blame by ‘passing the buck’ to someone more worthy…(or just less fortunate).
- A handout with possible phrases to use
- The grammar use of the third conditional ( cunningly thrown in ).
- Your students will be blaming their fellow participants for things. starting with from small issues (like a broken vase) to the most ridiculous (like world hunger).
-
In the note section under the slides, are the articles and sites from which the information is taken.
If you feel that some classes are not ready for a serious debate, hide the slides from 9 – 25, it will be an hour long lesson, of just fun and conversation practice.
(my favorite part was when one of my students slipped of her chair, with all the excitement, and with her wonderful Italian accent, she termed to me and said “I blame the French”!)
I hope you enjoy this lesson
