Product Description
This is one of my favorite reading skills lesson plans to teach. English students, particularly ESL students, often have a hard time skimming over words they don't know in order to focus on the main idea or use strategies to guess the meaning of the word.

This lesson forces them to do just that with a reading of the famous Lewis Carroll poem, The Jabberwocky. Because it is rife with made-up words that are not in the dictionary, students have no choice but to ignore them.

And at the end of the lesson, you tell them that they have successfully read a poem that is 50% made-up words, your students will feel very confident about their reading abilities.

This lesson contains:

* The text of the Jabberwocky on a nice-looking handout.

* A complete lesson plan with Teacher's Notes, including:
A warm-up
A presentation of the poem and the introduction of the new words in a very fun manner.
A student-led reading of the poem
Extension Ideas for homework or another class.
