Lesson: Silent Spring

Reading the first pages of the book that started the environment movement

This lesson plan for language teachers will appeal to learners of all ages from children to adults. The lesson is based around the beautiful first chapter of Rachel Carson's book 'Silent Spring', which was credited as starting the environmental movement when published in the 1960s. It is as relevant now as it was then, and the writing in this first chapter is just beautiful and very accessible. This lesson can be used with students of B2 language level upwards and will appeal to both adults and young learners. It's suitable for face to face and online teaching. Interested?
