  • Hi Anonymous,

    Thank you! Yes, you're quite right. Most of the lesson is about complaining (in a respectful way we hope) rather than respecting.

    However, we felt that tasks 13, 14 and the Follow-up in the teacher's notes encourage students to think of how they could improve the difficult work situation (we hope by thinking of peaceful interventions) and also to think about who they respect at work and why.

    I hope that explains why we thought it suitable for the 'Respect others' category.

  • I think this is a great lesson but I don't agree that it's about practising the skill of respecting others! It's complaining about people.
