Lesson Description

In this ESL lesson plan for adults and teens, students watch an informational video about a social credit ranking system in China.

There is a quiz and review with a bonus activity included. 

Video Description

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. This may not be so far-fetched when China rolls out their social credit system in 2020 which rates how 'trustworthy' its 1.4 billion citizens are.
