This Valentine's Day lesson is a PowerPoint in editable format.

This lesson is a discussion about everybody’s favorite subject – chocolate.

The lesson is a collection of facts about chocolate, which require the students to comment on the following:

• “I’m familiar/ not familiar with this fact”

• “I think that…”

• “it will influence/ not influence my chocolate consumption habits”

• Are you happy/ surprised/ fascinated /unhappy, with the discovery of this fact?

The ends with information and facts about forced laborers on cocoa farms.

I usually bring some Fair Trade Certified chocolate for the students, to show that there is an alternative to nestle (but that’s just me…).

The products in this shop are all produced by me, a dyslexic teacher (hence the name).

I’m painfully aware of what seems to be a very poor judgment of career choice on my part, and to be honest, a large part of this choice was to stick it to Mrs. Jacobson that said that there’s no place for the likes of me with my “pretend excuses” for misspelling every third word, in any self-respecting educational institution (so you see how I naturally, had to become a teacher.)

For more than 25 years I’ve been teaching ESL adult classes and cross-culture business classes, and much like other challenged individuals who go through life with one hand tied behind their backs, I try to make up for what I lack in the spelling department with hours of research, high-quality graphics, humor, passion and love for what I do.

The fact that I can actually do this job is first and foremost a testimony to the open-mindedness (or desperation brought on by the long economic recession) of the schools that hired me over the years despite my very evident drawback, to the parents that tolerated grammar mishaps and most of all to my beautiful students who have learned to “always double-check their teacher” and have come up with the sweetest, most heart-warming and diplomatic ways of pointing out my spelling errors (putting to great use their newly-acquired conditional capacity: “I’m not sure, but, I think I might have spotted…”)

Over the years, I've personally contributed to the economic success of countless computer ‘correcting programs’ available on the market (you're welcome Grammarly), and on top of that, my lessons are proofread by a few dedicated, wonderful, kind (and slightly horrified) TPT teachers, BUT there are always some errors that slip by us (mostly because I keep messing with the lessons after they've been proofread).

• If you feel offended by the existence of spelling errors in what is supposed to be a teaching tool

• or if you, much like Mrs. Jacobson, think the dyslexia is just an excuse not to try harder


For all you tree-hugging, open-minded individuals, who are looking for challenging, original material for your conversation classes and can see beyond the possible grammar errors (maybe even use it as a teaching opportunity “An extra point for the first student who can spot the obvious grammar error that I always tell you never to make”.) Plus… you know that lovely, warm, superior feeling you get when you catch a colleague’s error - well these moments are included with the product – no extra charge


All my lessons are in an editable PPT format and you get a free product if you send me the errors to correct.

I hope this product delivers everything you hoped for and more.


Thank you!
