    Get students thinking and talking with this collection of creative and original hypothetical What Would You Do? situations from veteran English teacher Taylor Sapp.

    What would you do if:

    • your best friend stopped showering and people noticed?
    • there was a ghost in your bedroom?
    • you could drink a potion of immortality?
    • you could only save one thing from your house before it was covered in lava?
    • you had to hire an unqualified US citizen or a qualified undocumented immigrant?

    These prompts get students talking as everyone has a different point of view. And these critical thinking and discussion activities go beyond a simple WWYD question. Each unit includes a preview image, a description of the situation, a list of suggested answers, variables that might change the students' answers, and follow-up discussion or essay questions. So there's as much or as little structure as you need to get students talking and keep them talking; it's amazing how long they'll argue about this stuff!

    What would you do if your students wanted to do MORE work?


    This hypothetical situations in this bundle come from the book What Would You Do? by Taylor Sapp. The bundle will continue to grow as we add all 81 situations in from the book.

    We will also be creating bundles with situations that mainly target younger learners, bundles that target middle school or junior high students with situations that touch on peer pressure, dating, and other issues facing younger teens. Finally a third bundle will cover situations more appropriate for older teenagers or adults, and touch on politics, working life, as well as being a parent.

    Use them as thoughtful and engaging warmers, fillers, or as the start of a class discussion, or even as pre-writing. Engaging, flexible, fun. What Would You Do? is your students' new favorite activity.

    What would you do if your students wanted to do MORE work because they love these so much?
