The British Isles

The British Isles

A task-based teaching unit designed for ESL-students practicing intermediate English while building a cultural knowledge about the UK. The unit is mainly about England, but the map-task helps the students get a geographical idea of what the British Isles consist of. I would recommend spending about two months using the teaching course, depending on how many lessons you have with your class. The only thing you need to find yourself is the movie "This is England". I found the film on Netflix, where it's still available.

Applying Visual Literacies in ESL Learning - Creating Stories about Place

Applying Visual Literacies in ESL Learning - Creating Stories about Place

This combined lesson and plan is designed for Intermediate ESL/EFL and ESOL learners who are ready to expand their speaking, listening, reading, and writing skills through imagining different places. The associated activity includes visual texts (images), a series of questions to guide classroom interactions, and vocabulary for elicitation toward developing effective speaking and writing skills. This is a semi-structured activity where students are encouraged to draw on their own experiences of different places. The activity moves the student from being a visual spectator to being a textual critic. By learning in an independent but guided way students can better prepare for the independent learning expectations of tertiary or workplace learning. This resource can be adapted for a particular curriculum or used in a stand alone session of 2-4 hours.

Descriptive Writing lesson- A journey through the forest

Descriptive Writing lesson- A journey through the forest

This lesson enables students to think about mood and atmosphere when writing to describe. They are given the task to describe a journey and then they have to do this using the opposite mood/atmosphere. My students really responded to this lesson and can now identify mood and atmosphere differences in other texts.
