How can we break them?
What is the difference between conscious and subconscious? How can you break a bad habit? Have you ever quit anything “cold turkey”? The full Discussion Starters lesson contains warm up questions, pre-reading vocabulary, a short reading, vocabulary review activities, comprehension questions, discussion questions, a class panel activity and a punctuation tip about using semicolons. We hope a discussion on bad habits will help some of your learners keep their New Year’s resolutions throughout 2011. If you are using our Discussion Starter lessons in class, be sure to check out our NEW Teachers’ Notes. Preview all of ESL-Library’s current Discussion Starters here.
