A Change is as Good as a Rest


This Intermediate level lesson for teens revises (originally for language from Unit 2 of Own It 4, but easily introduced if not covered in your book) some phrasal verbs connected with the topic of 'change' e.g. settle down, try out, turn down, turn out well. It also discusses change on several levels. The lesson includes a discussion of changes in students' own lives, a reading, and matching exercise with changes in the lives of celebrities, a little pronunciation work on vowel sounds, and a presentation preparation task pitching for funding for a charity that seeks to bring about change. The worksheet includes teacher's notes, answer key, celebrity life change mini-posters, and charity group cards.
