Sophie Scholl lesson plan

A free downloadable lesson about Sophie Scholl, a young German girl who took the brave decision to stand up to the Nazis, during World War II. The lesson could be used to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day on January 27th, or at any other time of the year.

The lesson starts with a couple of lead-in discussion questions and then students watch a short trailer for a film about Sophie Scholl. Note that the film is in German with English subtitles. In this lesson the video is only used as a lead-in, the main input is in a reading text.

After watching the video, the students read the text to check their ideas. They then carry out an exam style note completion task, before matching some possibly unknown words in the text with their definitions.

The lesson is aimed at B2/C1 students.

To round up there is a final discussion task.

British Council Safer Internet Day Supporter

About our SID activities

We work closely with the Child Protection team throughout the year to coordinate events to celebrate Safer Internet Day (SID) across the British Council. This year we will be sharing the materials from LearnEnglish Kids, LearnEnglish Teens and LearnEnglish with our global teacher network to ensure the online safety messages reach as many people as possible. Our TeachingEnglish website is also participating by providing lesson plans for English teachers covering the topic of online safety. Our social media channels will share online safety materials and information for teachers, parents and learners of English, and we'll host two Facebook live events during the day to raise awareness of the event to our global audience of teachers and parents.

What we are doing to support the SID slogan of "Together for a better internet"…

Safer Internet Day brings together colleagues and teams throughout the British Council who work closely with our Child Protection team. We work together to try and raise awareness about online safety issues through a series of campaigns. We use our global reach to share information and learning materials with learners of English, teachers and parents.
