Welcome back from Spring Break! I hope you had a lovely time. This week is our extra activity, our hike in Trevijano on Sunday April 19th. Please send me an email if you would like to come!
No, on to the homework! This week's topic was the Boston Bomber Trial, which of course led us to debate the death penalty. If you didn't come to class today and want some basic information about the case, the wikipedia page about the Boston Marathon Bomings has a lot of info.
To practice your listening skills, learners can listen to an article about Support for the Death Penalty is Strong.
For original version, you can watch a PBS documentary about the technology used to track down the Tsarnaev brothers.
Learners can try an article about the cost of the death penalty or Czech Republic is not Chechnya.
For original version reading, try Tsarnaev guilty on all 30 counts.
So, after taking a look at the details of the Dzhokhar Tsarnaev case, what do you think? Do you think he should be given the death penalty or life in prison? Why?
