Do you have any fractivists in your class? Many environmentalists think fracking should be banned worldwide. Today’s podcast features a reading from our ready-made Discussion Starters lesson plan about the controversial technique known as fracking. In the lesson plan, students discuss energy alternatives. They also review the usage of “used to”. You can assign this podcast for homework before you do the lesson, or download the MP3 file and listen to it together in class. If you’re an English learner, use this podcast for extra listening practice.
