Scientists can make better babies. But should they?

ESL video-based lesson plan

Lesson Overview

This ESL lesson plan deals with the themes of biology and science.  In particular, the evolution of gene editing technology and the current debate around designer babies. 

It focuses on practising essential 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.
