The song “UNPRETTY” is a good opportunity for students to talk about Social Pressure and work on their listening skills.

OPTION 1: First, students say what they would change about their physical appearance if they could. Then, they listen to the song and find 10 mistakes in the lyrics. After that, they say how they think the author feels and whether they relate to her. Finally, they talk about Social Pressures.

OPTION 2: First, they are introduced to the vocabulary necessary for the discussion to be had. Then, they play a game using Past Modals to speculate about procedures done by a few celebrities.  After that, they say which procedure they would undergo and why. Finally, they engage into a group discussion on Social Pressures.
