Are plant-based burgers healthy?
ESL news-based lesson plan
Students will investigate plant-based meat alternatives and how nutritious they are in comparison to animal meat in the ESL lesson on Food Sustainability. Plant-based diets are more sustainable than animal-based diets since they require less natural resources and are less stressful on the environment, but how do they compare nutritionally? Students will read an article on the subject while learning key vocabulary and language structure to talk about the topic.
It focuses on practising key reading, speaking, collaboration and critical thinking skills. If used as a flipped ESL lesson, you will need at least 90 minutes to complete this lesson. However, lessons can run up to 3 hours ( consider two 90-minute lessons or for university teachers to adjust as needed).
While targeting intermediate and upper-intermediate language learners of English, it is highly adaptable as it has been purposely designed to facilitate mixed-level classes. This includes targeting professionals in a tertiary institution such as a university or within a professional environment.
