More, more, more!!! Resources?

Another simple to use and effective Speaking of… activity has hit the shelves and it’s a keeper, but you should share it, too. If you haven’t used one of these before, check out this post for some basic explanations.

Ever seen the movie Seven with Brad Pitt? Or grew up going to Catholic school…?

Then you are aware of the 7 cardinal sins. This lesson plan covers greed. And before you start whipping out YouTube clips of Wolf of Wall Street to illustrate some money-hungry monster, why not look at a place that… breaks the mold.

The video takes a peak into the Nordic brand of happiness and how greed is understood in Finnish society. Are you shocked that Finland looks down upon greed? Hm.

As with all our Speaking of… activities, there is:

  1. a video https://www.bbc.co.uk/reel/embed/p09fc6tx;
  2. a discussion aide;
  3. a post-discussion activity.

Interested in the other cardinal sins? Let us know which we should do next in the comments below.
