International Women’s Day March 8th #BalanceforBetter

It is international Women’s Day and the theme is #BalanceforBetter – a balanced world is a better world. Why not celebrate women’s achievements this March using this touching lesson about Greta Thurnburg, a Swedish girl who has mobilised thousands of young people to demand action on climate change? This lesson will particularly appeal to teens but can be used with higher level adults and younger learners too.

Students will:

  • Watch a presentation to pick out the main message
  • Listen for detail to find specific information
  • Reflect on the message in a class discussion
  • Plan and deliver their own speech to the class
