This unit plan includes 4 lesson plans with a final assessment for teaching novice high ESL learners.
Do your students seem to have problems making telephone calls and ask for help? Are they sometimes unsure of the difference between arguing and negotiating? Are they too casual in occasions that they need to be professional?
Upon completion of these lessons, students will be able to distinguish when to be casual or professional in their speech, discern the difference between arguing and negotiating, and ask questions over the telephone to receive explanations. Students achieve these goals by completing a series of speaking and listening activities and scripted and unscripted role-play.
The unit plan includes the rubric, assessment plan, and activities with the necessary materials/worksheets.
Some lessons will include activities from a textbook called Listening Power 1 (published by Pearson Longman, 2011) and will work best if the instructor has access to the textbook.
The lesson will work well with Intensive English Programs and community ESL programs. Access to computer/Internet will be required in some lessons.
