History and me! – a discussion worksheet

Is it possible to talk about history in a motivating way (even for those who are uninterested in the subject) with students ranging from A2-C2 levels? It is now with this ready-to-use discussion worksheet.

Here is a discussion worksheet in the “print’n’teach” tradition. Once you fall in love with it, look out for more to come on other topics. I guess nowadays it can be considered a “screen-share’n’teach”, couldn’t it?


Activities 1), 2) and 3) can be prepared by students at home or discussed in a spontaneous manner in class according to the abilities of your particular group. You might also create a class-wide debate or put students into groups to complete the worksheet and then come back together as a class to discuss.

Activity 3) is, for me, the most interesting (and always works well). It enables the reflection of history to be broadened to current events and allows you to find out what has marked your students and also what interests them. I like it because it can go in so many directions!

Of course, expect more from your more advanced students and be more flexible with beginners. Ask them to elaborate on or clarify their ideas when possible. 

There you go! Simple to print’n’teach for in-person lessons or screen-share’n’teach online. Hope it helps 🙂
