This is a full, 90-minute, complete ESOL lesson plan, designed for a new or busy teacher to be able to implement easily, without any additional work. Vocabulary includes family words and adjectives that describe people. This lesson is for adult ELL's at a newcomer, novice, or low-beginner level.
This lesson is designed to be the third lesson in a series of 20, covering basic grammar, vocabulary, and phrases that a newcomer, novice, or beginner ELL needs to learn, in a format that is easy for a new or busy teacher. Additional lessons will follow in the same structure, creating a frictionless learning routine that gives ELL's familiar activities and expectations.
If this lesson works for you, I strongly encourage you to try the additional newcomer, novice, or low-beginner lessons in this series. As students become comfortable with the format of the class, I notice increased participation and faster learning.
I hope you enjoy teaching this lesson, and that it relieves some of your planning burden and gets you up and running in your adult ESOL beginner class.
