Here are the instructions for your evaluation for Unit 1.
You will write out IN YOUR COPY BOOKS a complete PEEL argument for a debate on a given topic.
REMEMBER THE PEEL STRUCTURE:
Point, Evidence, Explanation, Link
Your argument will be graded on how you fulfill each of the four criteria (P.E.E.L.), Use of English and neatness.
Your teacher will write the debate motion on the white board.
Once everyone has completed their arguments, and has had them checked, students will be able to present the arguments in a debate (Crossfire format or 3 vs. 3 format).
Unit 1: Conflict Resolution
Objective: Recognize situations when it is difficult to resolve conflicts
Virtue: Joy and Love
Well, the last few weeks we have been talking about different kinds of conflicts and ways that we can resolve them.
Now, although we don´t like to admit it, probably the easiest way is just to ignore problems, and this is especially the case when the conflict does not concern you.
- Do you always tell the truth? Think of some examples when it is difficult to decide to tell the truth or remain silent.
- What would you do if you saw somebody being bullied?
- What is a bystander?
WATCH THE FOLLOWING VIDEO. LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES WHEN SOMEBODY COULD DO SOMETHING TO INTERVENE. WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IF THEY INTERVENED?
Instructions: Read the situation below, and answer the questions in your copy books using complete sentences.
Some of your classmates are making fun of a new student who is in the other class because he has a funny accent. They are constantly imitating how he talks and laughing at him. At first, the boy is also smiling and laughing too, but after some time, you see he looks sad.
- What would you do? Why? What wouldn´t you do? Why not?
- What might happen if you and the other students did nothing and just ignored the situation?
- Do you think your friends deserve to be punished for making fun of his accent? Why or why not? If yes, explain the punishment.
