This is a Critical Reading Club worksheet. With this format, students need to read an online article at home and do the exercises in the classroom. Learn more about how to use such worksheets and their benefits in our post.

ACTIVITIES

In the warm-up activity, students need to choose the best ending for the definition of the phrase professional networking. Then, they discuss some general questions about networking. After that, they match sentence halves. The sentences contain vocabulary related to networking (e.g. have connections, return the favour, exchange information). There is also a list of concept-checking questions in the teacher’s version of the worksheet and in the e-lesson plan. Next, students need to choose three of the sentences they created and discuss them. Finally, students look at some networking tips and share their views on how good or bad they are.

      Unfortunately, there’s nothing we can do about that. The article is written for AmericanExpress.com and so I guess they’re blocking access to it for Belarusians.

    Hi there,
    Thanks for the lesson plan! Students loved the topic! A small tweak occurred to me. Would you consider adding the link to the article also to the students’ pdf file? That would help them keep all materials in one place and refer back to the article if they choose to. Thanks for taking it under consideration!

Questions

Title separator

Is there a minimum subscription period if I choose a monthly subscription?

No, there’s no minimum required number of subscription months. You can cancel any time you want. Basically, you can sign up and then cancel your subscription the next day, which will mean you have access for 1 month and won’t be charged again.

What currencies can I pay in for my subscription?

Our default currency is USD (American dollar), but you can also pay in EUR (euro), GBP (British pound sterling) or PLN (Polish zloty). You can change the currency you want to pay in at the Pricing page before selecting a subscription plan.

How can I edit an e-lesson plan?

You can get your own editable copy of an e-lesson plan and make changes to it. To do so, either (1) make a copy of it on your Google Drive (preferable method) or (2) download it in a Powerpoint format (but formatting might be a bit off so we can’t guarantee that it will work well).
