“Reality TV” - A mirror of civilization or a symbol of dysfunction?

THIS IS A TWO-PART POWER POINT CONVERSATION PRESENTATION IN EDITABLE PPT FORMAT.

Reality TV is a great debate topic, but it’s really big and it has many different aspects. I’ve decided to divide it into two consecutive one-hour lessons.
From my experience, this type of subject creates a mess in a conversation form, since once a student gets the floor, they’re so exited that their arguments spill over and include the whole nine yards.
I tried to stir this conversation very carefully so that the students would argue over one part at a time and that clear conclusions could be reached and built on.
The two lessons are divided into:
“The angle of the viewers” and “The angle of the show”
Part one includes a work paper and part two ends with a role play activity (possible arguments examples are given in the ‘notes’ section).
Part one “The viewers”:
• What is reality TV
• The different types of reality shows
• Why is this genre so popular?
• How real is this “reality”?
• What is “enhanced reality”?
• Reality TV’s “moral code”
• Studies on The Effects of Watching Reality Programming (on adults)
• Studies On The Effects of Watching Reality Programming (on young viewers)
• Should children be prevented from watching reality shows?
Part two “The show”:
• The part of the judges.
• The participants: the effects of losing and winning.
• The “Stanford prison experiment”.
• “The Belmont Report”
• Should we subject reality shows to an ethics committee.
• The positive side.
• A role play activity.

Although created with ESL adult students in mind, this lesson will also work for English speaking high schoolers who are studying psychology units or for debate classes.

I hope you enjoy this lesson
