How good are your students’ digital and information literacy skills? Knowing which websites are trustworthy and which ones are not is a vital skill. Why not try this lesson to help them develop in this area?
It’s based around a fascinating website about an endangered species of octopus. Just how real is this octopus?
In terms of environmental awareness, it is key to know the points of view behind websites in this politicized issue.
In this lesson, learners will:
- Learn facts about the octopus
- practice reading skills
- use a resource from the British Council LearnEnglish teens website to develop skills in verifying a website.
For B1 upwards, young learners, teens and adults.
