This lesson in the advanced level English textbook is about travel. So, I prepared a short lesson using OCED travel data.
The attached pdf has two pages of OCED travel data. We will use these pages as part of our lesson. It will help to build professional level speaking skills by understanding how to read, summarize and explain statistical data.
The first step is to understand the data you are looking at by answering three questions:
- what is it?
- what is being counted?
- what is the unit of measurement?
The second step is to summarize the most important ideas in the data. For our class, you should be able to make answers that:
- describe Korea’s past and present;
- compare current data for Korea and other countries;
- compare the past changes in Korea with changes in other countries.
ESL students can start the lesson by downloading the OCED travel data worksheets here: oced-travel-adv-class.
