LESSON OVERVIEW

In this lesson, students practise some language related to breaking and following rules, and discuss the reasons behind cheating in online games.

C1 / Advanced30 minCritical Reading ClubUnlimited Plan

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

The lesson starts with a discussion about hacks and shortcuts in online games. Students need to explain what each of them is and share their experience with using them when playing games. Students then discuss the differences in meanings of some expressions used when talking about rules and agreements (e.g. bend the rules vs alter the rules, disrupt a contract vs break a contract). After that, they use the information from the article they read before the class as well as their own knowledge to list the reasons why people cheat in online games. Finally, they move on to a short discussion. They need to think about how online cheating influences the cheaters and the players who follow the rules and why cheating in online games is so common.

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).
