Here is a great ESL version of a Hall Pass made as a passport!
The document is printed in only one 8.5 x 11 sheet, but is divided into 4 sections. The page is to be folded in 4, just like you would do for a card and in the back, students can see the rules. Once you go over the rules with them, they are to sign their passport with the date, so they have no excuse to say they did not know. You can see in the preview what are the rules.
Once folded, you have 4 pages:
- Page 1: Students draw the flag from their country and write their information (name, teacher's name, and room number).
- Page 2: Students are to enter the passport details (name, reasons to learn English, etc.
- Page 3: This is the Visas section which is used as a hall pass. They have 6 sections allowing them to go to their lockers, restroom, etc. Once the sections are filled out, they can't go out anymore. I suggest you give them a new passport at the beginning of each term.
- Page 4: Students are to sign the passport to show they know and understand the rules, so they have no excuse to say they did not know about a certain rule. In the full ESL Passport HALL PASS Packet version, there is a translation page for the students to fill out, as well as a quiz.
Answer key is provided, but note that many of the answers may vary for each students, such as their nationality, what they like, etc.
Once the Passport is filled out and signed, students are ready to use it as a hall pass, which was designed to be used 6 times in each term, making it easier to manage with students who always want to go out.
This model is different, which means that if students need to show their pass, it will help them gain confidence, at God’s will, by having answers ready for them to say, if asked.
Yes, with this passport, English learning can still continue to take place even outside of the classroom!
