This lesson plan about stereotypes includes a lot of tasks for students to learn and practise vocabulary. It also sparks a discussion and ends with a short video about racial preferences in dating.
This is a Flipped Classroom lesson plan. In a nutshell, it means that the first part of the lesson needs to be done by students at home. Learn more about flipped classroom and how we implement it in these lesson plans in our post.
The pre-class worksheet starts with a short text explaining what a stereotype is, what stereotypes might be about as well as what positive and negative stereotypes are. First, students need to read the text and select words that best fit in the gaps in the text. The goal of the task is to check grammar as well as vocabulary skills. Next, in the second exercise students study a mind map that shows different verbs that go with the word ‘stereotype’. Afterwards, they have to choose the correct words in the sentences given to practise the vocab.
As usual, the in-class part of the worksheet starts with a discussion. Students need to answer a few questions about stereotypes and at the same time they check whether they remember new vocabulary from the previous exercises. Then, students get another task on vocabulary. This time the vocabulary is taken from the video that students will watch at the end of the class. They have to choose correct words from the box and complete the second sentence so that it has a similar meaning to the first one. This way, they can learn synonyms as well as different ways to express the same idea. Before watching the video, students get a lead-in in the form of a quote about stereotypes. They need to discuss it and say whether they agree with it or not. This lesson plan about stereotypes ends with a short video about stereotypes when dating. The video is used only to spark a discussion about the ideas presented in the video.
