C1. Clint Smith - The Danger of Silence
This thought provoking lesson is based on a poetic TED Talks presentation by Clint Smith. The speaker gives an evocative spoken word presentation on the themes of courage, compassion and integrity. The language focus of the lesson is the use of metaphor and simile. Students are asked to interpret the metaphors and similes in the presentation and discuss the topics raised. Students then describe people, places or abstract ideas and experiences from their own lives using the simile and metaphor structures they have learnt.
