Nowadays teenagers face many difficult concerns. They often feel pressure from others to take up bad habits like smoking or to do something wrong. Many times ce teenagers get into trouble because of the influen of peer pressure. Avoiding peer pressure is a ed challenging task for teenagers, but they can succe with the guidance and support of their parents. Peer pressure is one of the strongest—and most prominent—influences in a teenager’s life. Mostand young people want to be accepted by others to belong to a group. They often feel pressured to do things that other teenagers are doing, even when they know it is wrong. This is a very dangerous situation for them. It should be the s responsibility of both the teenager and the parent to deal with peer pressure appropriately. out Teenagers need to feel strong and figure things on their own. If they know who they are, they not will make better decisions for themselves and play be easily manipulated. Parents, however, should lves a role in this. Teens need to believe in themse and count on their parents to teach them to n make good decisions.

New task

Sample pages from Unit 6

A Read the following excerpt of a letter to an editor about difficult friendships. Discuss why teens should learn to voice their problems and / or concerns.

Topic: Difficult friendships You are going to write an essay about difficult friendships.

Difficult friends might do things such as be noisy in public, either to bother people on purpose or to simply get attention. Some teens don’t like this behavior, but let it happen anyway, due to the fear of not being accepted. I believe this is a very common problem among teens today and we should encourage them to speak up when they are feeling manipulated in order to rectify the problem.

1 Writing warm-up A There are many teens who stay in difficult relationships. Sometimes they don’t even know they are in one until it’s too late and bad behavior has become a habit. This can have negative effects on their self-esteem, especially if the difficult friend manipulates the other friend. Read the dialogue below. ●

Who is being the difficult friend? How is Brad manipulating Nicky?



Do you think Nicky has high self-esteem? Why/Why not?

Brad:

Hey, that’s a cool MP3 player. Can I borrow it?

B Focus question Read the task below and write one focus question based on the excerpt above that you will answer with your essay.

Nicky: Um, I don’t know. My mother just bought it for me for my birthday. I’ve hardly used it. Brad:

Pre-writing warm-up discussion and dialogue

Task: Essay Peer pressure is common in difficult friendships between teens nowadays. Some believe that self-esteem plays a large role in this. What are some ways teens can boost their confidence and cope with difficult friendships? Discuss your point of view and support it with examples.

Oh, come on, man. I promise I’ll give it back to you tomorrow.

Nicky: But you still haven’t given me back my mobile phone! Brad:

I’ll give that to you tomorrow too. I promise.

Nicky: Um, OK. Here you are. Brad:
