This is a ready to go lesson in PowerPoint for upper high-school learners of English as a second or foreign language focused on vocabulary and phrases on the topic of arguing your point of view.

  • PowerPoint slides
  • Printable bingo cards
  • Lesson Plan

To start the lesson, the teacher can simply put the PowerPoint show onto the screen in the classroom. It starts with a warm up which is a simple matching activity. Answers appear on click.

Next, the slides progress to presenting the target vocabulary and phrases in the form of pictures but each with multiple choice items to add interaction, ease understanding and to allow the teacher to try to elicit the word or phrase from the students. Answers are highlighted on click. After the pictures there is a short review exercise where all the pictures are on one slide and, on click, pictures disappear and students have to recall which word or phrase disappeared. Full list of vocabulary shown below*

The next phase of the lesson is the practice phase and this is a reading comprehension on the slides. It’s about a boy who gets sent to detention although, arguably, he didn’t do anything wrong. It’s split up into five paragraphs (each on a separate slide) so it’s in manageable chunks for the student. Each paragraph has fill in the blanks too which students have to fill with words or phrases they saw earlier in the lesson. Each paragraph also has a true/false comprehension question to check understanding. Answers again appear on click.

The last phase of the lesson is the production phase in which the students use some of the words and phrases for themselves relative to their lives. Three situations are given (you can do one at a time or students can choose one for themselves):

  • Sent to detention but you have to get the teacher to let you go
  • Boyfriend suspected of cheating – do you give him a second chance?
  • Girl stealing money from her mom’s purse

Students work in small groups and after reading the details of the situation(s) they formulate their argument. A guide to how to create and put their points across is given for them to follow. Once students are ready, they present to the class.

The PowerPoint slides can be edited.

The final activity, by way of a little fun, is to have a game of bingo. 32 bingo cards are included (printable PDF). It includes a master list for the teacher to check off the words/phrases called out.

The lesson includes a one-page lesson plan (Word and PDF) which you can edit (e.g. add your school name and subject code), print and submit to your manager or administration department.

This lesson is used every year with upper-high-school grade 11 students in a private school in southeast Asia and on occasion with adult ESL / EFL learners. The level is pre-intermediate ESL / EFL. The students like that the lesson is light (no need to copy anything), interactive and that they can give their point of view. The lesson for me takes a total time of around one hour 20 minutes.
