 Teaching ideas

  • Read through the Guardian's suggestions for their person of the year 2013. Get students to write a piece about who their person of the year is. Leave it as open as you can - they could choose a family member, friend, celebrity etc.
  • Extend the task to incorporate speaking and listening and get students to to try and 'win' votes for their 'person of the year'
  • Using the Teachit balloon debate template students have to decide who should be saved!
