A free downloadable lesson about the issue of girls’ education, and the work of Muzoon Allmellehan, a young refugee from Syria, who is campaigning for girls to be allowed to learn.
The lesson starts with a few statistics about the education of girls, and a short video to provide some background information.
The students then read an article about Muzoon, and carry out an FCE style multiple choice exercise. There is also a focus on guessing meaning from context.
Finally the students use the information they have learnt over the lesson to write a short essay about the topic.
