Fresh Ideas for the ESL Classroom

My ebooks provide ESL and EFL teachers with high quality resources that make learning fun and productive. Great for conversation and writing classes, the lesson ideas, printable worksheets and activities are suitable for high beginner and up students.


Teach Essential Writing Skills

Each of the 22 lessons in this 95-page ebook comes with a clear learning objective. Taken together, the lessons focus on improving four essential skills: fluency; proficiency, style and inquiry-based reasoning.

The overall goal is to elevate student writing to the point where they can describe things well and express ideas persuasively with a four-step critical thinking framework:

  • define a question
  • collect evidence
  • establish warrants
  • form a conclusion

The final lesson in the ebook brings all of the skills together into a simulated business email role play. The objective is to respond to a customer’s request for information with facts from a data sheet and a clear recommendation. Everything the teacher needs to run the lesson is included.
