In this ESL lesson plan for adults and teens, students watch an informational video about a social credit ranking system in China. It includes discussion questions, conversation, and other activities about social media, citizenship, and social credit. Students learn some important vocabulary words, phrases, and expressions from the video. The grammar activity features the usage of "whether...or" for alternatives. There is a quiz and review with a bonus activity included.
Nosedive, an episode of 'Black Mirror' paints a world where a person's place in society is dictated by a number. People are rated based on their interactions.
