This ESL lesson plan begins with a numbered 5-paragraph 313-word text that discusses the origins of basketball and a brief reference to the game as it is played today. The text is written at a grade 6 reading level.
Included are: a list of 14 vocabulary words (which are underlined in the text),
a short list of Fast Facts,
and a worksheet with three activities.
A second feature of the unit is a Listening Exercise which includes a Teacher Guide, two copies of the 214-word Listening Exercise Text (one copy has the sentences numbered), and three charts that relate to the Listening Exercise. The Listening Exercise also includes a sheet of 6 Multiple Choice questions that may be done as a supplemental activity or as a quiz.
The lesson plan is attractively illustrated with graphics or photos that print well in black and white.
