The Conditioned This EFL lesson plan is designed around a short film by Facebook Stories about Raimundo Arruda Sobrinho who was homeless in São Paulo, Brazil, for nearly 35 years. Raimundo sat in in the same spot and wrote every day. He was befriended by a young woman named Shalla Monteiro who was impressed by his poetry and she wanted to help him with his dream of publishing a book. She created a Facebook Page to feature Raimundo’s writing. In the lesson students describe two pictures, write a narrative, watch a short film and discuss questions related to the narrative shown in the film. I would ask all teachers who use Film English to consider buying my book Film in Action as the royalties which I receive from sales help to keep the website completely free. Language level: Intermediate (B1) – Upper Intermediate (B2) Learner type:Teens and adults Time: 90 minutes Topic: Empathy Language: Adjectives to describe a person and narrative tenses Materials: Short film Support Film English Step 1 Step 2 Step 3 Step 4
