About The Product

Features

  • Contains 40 two-page units of discussion, reading, and role play material.
  • The lessons are designed as stimulating two-page spreads which teachers can dip into from time to time.
  • This book is an antidote to the bland discussion materials in most general coursebooks. Topics include: death, swearing, gay rights, animal rights, sex, personal hygiene, racism, nudity, etc.
