“8 secrets of success” TED-talk lesson plan

here is the lesson plan based on the TED talk by Richard St John that I referred to in my previous post about my teaching in a field. Hope you’ll find it useful.

The talk itself conveniently takes only 3 minutes, but I’ve found there is a lot to discuss and to take away.

The lesson starts with refreshing some basic vocab and introducing some people the speaker mentions in his talk (he actually bases his talk on some utterances from famous and successful people), then proceeds to watching and discussion, and finishes with a look at some viewers’ comments and some vocabulary recycling.

I’ll be happy to get your feedback if you take the lesson to class!
