Inquiry Questions

  • What is a good life?
  • Should euthanasia be an option?
  • What is a near-death experience? Do they exist?
  • How can you improve your life?


We will discuss what a good life is in our personal opinion, but also to others who are in other situations. The students will write an essay about what a good life is and how they can improve their life.

We will read about near-death experiences, afterlife and euthanasia. We will watch the movie “Me Before You”, which will show the ethical and emotional difficulties. The students will have a debate club about euthanasia, where they practice to argue in pairs for an opinion, but also on how to find facts to support their arguments. The students will also read a novel each that involves the topic life and death.

We will use google classroom and the planner on Lexby’s website to get detailed instructions and documents.
