Discussion Activity: Youth & Old Age

I wrote this activity about seven years ago to be used in a virtual classroom although anyone can use this in a traditional classroom as well. Anyway,  the basic premise for this lesson is to allow the students to activate passive vocabulary, learn new vocabulary and to practice speaking about a relatively familiar topic in order to increase and/or improve the students' fluency.  The first page is a list of vocabulary words that the students can define, practice pronunciation and/or discuss.  The second page is a blank slate for the students and/or teacher to write 'rites of passages' in their culture.  The final slide is a list of questions that the students can ask and answer.  The level for this activity is intermediate to advanced.
