Product Description

This presentation contains a 26 slide PowerPoint lesson in editable PPT format with accompanying worksheet and answer worksheet.

This is a no-prep lesson.

*This is the quiz of the "superstition" lesson. the conversation part is called: "Superstitions - What does science say?"

I created this lesson for the Halloween period when superstitions are fun to discuss, but it has since become my go-to lesson when I have a half-empty class, a dormant class, or an early Monday morning class. This is also a great lesson to use at the beginning of the year as an ice breaker.

Superstitions are great fun to teach, they also help ESL students clarify some of the weird unexplainable behavior they encounter.

I added some interesting explanation in the notes section for some of these superstitions (with a link to the original page – if you wish to dig deeper), theses explanations are by no means scientific and should be taken with a grain of salt.

This lesson contains:

- A power-point multiple-choice question quiz guessing game about popular superstitions.

- A worksheet word document (of the same questions) to follow along.

- An answer worksheet for the teacher (or self-checking).

I hope you enjoy this lesson

IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON BUYING THIS PRODUCT, PLEASE READ THIS:

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 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 naturally, I 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 of 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, by the parents that tolerated grammar mishaps and most of all by 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 program’ available on the market (you're welcome Grammarly) and on top of that my lessons are proofread by 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

THEN THIS PRODUCT IS NOT FOR YOU!

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 wonderful, warm, superior feeling you get when you catch a colleague’s error - well these moments are included with the product – no extra charge)

THIS PRODUCT IS DEFINITELY FOR YOU!

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!

WISH YOU ALL A WONDERFUL AND SUCCESSFUL YEAR!
