Hello teachers and learners! Here is a lesson you can do to practice your English writing skills.
In this lesson, students are taught how to do research on the internet and write a simple YouTube video script. The main goal is to let students write their sentences and present them in a script form. When the script is done, teachers can instruct them to practice speaking their script. If they have mastered it, let the students take a video like they are delivering on their YouTube channel.
Here is a sample script. There are three parts, the introduction, the body, and the conclusion. Teachers should assign students in groups and let them work together.
