Hi Leo,I just wanted to say thank you for the cleaner version of the original. The true nature of my post is that I agree fully with your philosophy. I am also quite jealous because it seems as if in your school, you have complete control of how and what you teach. Whereas I teach from a text book. I would rather find something of interest which would provoke students to want to participate and inquiry. These ways naturally build creativity, logic, and the students' vocabulary. I think I may use it if it correlates to the objectives of my lessons.

Leo, I highly respect your lessonsThey are extremely entertaining and designed to cater to the situation where teaching becomes more of a struggle to motivate than to educate.Please keep sharing them.

Hi Leo,My students and I really appreciated your hard work on this lesson.I wanted to practice the can grammar a little further, so I made a couple of extension sheets. The magic life-ring is a very simple extension task for good students, the matching task I used with my elementary kids for a bit more practice.Also, in the main lesson, I gave my students a chance to argue with the reasoning for extra points. It really forces them to try to prove me wrong for a few extra points.Alex
