Lesson Description: In this lesson, a video of a young office employee arriving late for work prompts a reflection on work-life balance. Should one work hard in an office job or adopt a more relaxed approach to life? Students will express their opinions on this issue and support their positions with reasoned arguments. This aims to encourage critical thinking and to consider the different factors that influence a student’s views on work and leisure. Through reasoned analysis, students will form a well-supported argument that reflects their own values and beliefs.
Lesson Question: Can you balance work and personal life? Share your thoughts, give examples, and explain your preference: work or lifestyle.
Text Types: Personal opinion; critical thinking; reasoned arguments.
