Changing the world from our classrooms

Lesson 6: From Individual Power to Collective Action.

In a world where individual efforts often feel like drops in an ocean, this session aims to magnify the ripple effect of collective action in addressing global challenges. Students will embark on a journey from recognizing their personal agency to understanding the monumental impact of united efforts. Through discussion, role-play, and collaborative tasks, learners will explore various facets of social and environmental activism, learning how to share their ideas and contribute to collective endeavours in English. This lesson promises not only to enhance linguistic proficiency but also to inspire learners with a sense of community and shared responsibility towards creating a better world.

Level: A2+
