This lesson plan explores the topic of crime and motivation. It uses images and a crime story to develop students' vocabulary. It also helps to develop their understanding of narrative tenses.
Most importantly, the lesson pushes students to think more critically about the information they are being told and to think about how they can cross-check information.
