Introduction to Human Animal Studies is a source of authentic vocabulary presented in the context of the important discipline of Human Animal Studies. The cards address controversial and thought-provoking, and perhaps even re-prioritised, topics. They inspire a holistic view of the world, seeing non-human animals, all within an accessible vocabulary and beautiful visuals.


Why is this so useful?


Human Animal studies is currently a thriving scientific discipline. It prompts us to think about our everyday consumer choices, explores the role of non-human animals in our society, and wants to ensure that they live with dignity.

Non-human animals have been present in our lives for centuries, the themes of the cards allow students to actively participate in conversations, practise language and learn new vocabulary.

The material is designed to address the most important topics in Human Animal Studies in a linguistically accessible way. On the other hand, the importance of the topics helps to provide even pupils or students at high levels of language proficiency with an opportunity for reflection, discussion and development.


How to use them?

The cards can be used to plan full lessons or as a supplement to the textbook. Nowadays, most courses have a separate Nature or Environment module.

You can easily organise a flipped lesson by providing reading material, or ask students to search for information on a topic (quest), assigning it as preparation for the lesson. This will help students to engage more deeply with the lesson and allow them to use the time to practise their speaking skills. The cards can be used for topic introductions, discussions or debates.

The kit contains materials to create dozens of lesson plans that require little or no preparation on the part of the teacher.
