B2 / Upper Intermediate60 minFlipped LessonPrintable & Digital$12 Plan

This is a Flipped Classroom lesson plan. In a nutshell, it means that first part of the lesson needs to be done by students at home. Learn more about flipped classroom and how we implement it in those lesson plans in our post.

PRE-CLASS ACTIVITIES

The pre-class part starts with a short exercise which introduces words and phrases that appear later in the video. Students need to read questions, match phrases to their meanings and try to answer these questions. Next, they move to a word formation task. They have to fill in the table with nouns, adjectives and verbs. The table includes words such as recruitment, assessment, perception, consciousness, etc. Then, before watching the first part of the talk, students have to guess the answer to one question: How much time on average does it take a recruiter to review a resume? Next, they watch the video and do the comprehension task.

IN-CLASS ACTIVITIES

The in-class part starts with a word formation exercise to check whether students remember the words from the pre-class worksheet. First, they have to complete the questions by transforming the words given in brackets, and then answer the questions. Before watching the second part of the video, students discuss how they might perceive a person presented in a short description (the same description is at the end of the video). After that, students watch the video and answer comprehension questions, as well as do two tasks on vocabulary used by the speaker. Our lesson plan about recruitment ends with a discussion about unconscious bias, how it affects our decision and what we can do to fight against it.

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) or GBP (British pound sterling). 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 canā€™t guarantee that it will work well).
