Advising on security issues – speaking activities

Fort security issues – advising

Military sentry with a dog. Security issues in the military forts - English speaking activitiesThis time I would like to share my idea for an English lesson on security issues and advising. The whole lesson is based on an article online, additional multiple choice exercise created on kubbu.com and the presentation where I presented necessary grammar and vocabulary. The presentation was used during online teaching session via Skype.

Fort Carson – new security rules

First, as usual, I send the link to the base article. This time I chose the recent article from Military.com. You can find it here. Since the following exercise has imposed time limit for each question, I advised students to read the article at least twice before moving on to the exercise.

Security related exercise

Then I asked students to do one exercise accesible on Kubbu.com prior to our Skype session. If  you want to check on this exercise you can go to a direct link to the exercise and do it as an anonymous user. (link to the exercise here). Kubbu.com helps you monitor each student’s progress and has basic accesibility settings. And my favourite options – deadlines for the students and the time limit setting for each question!
