The lessons above are designed to be a combination of giving students a culturally responsive, personal connection to the activity as well as an opportunity to practice their English grammar and vocabulary. Teachers know that students learn best when they are given different ways to show what they know. Activities should involve a mix of speaking, writing, reading, listening, interacting with peers, and drawing or creating storyboards!
These lessons range from an "All About Me" where students can share different aspects of their lives, to a country project where students can share about their native country, to grammar practice with various tenses. Students are also provided the opportunity to practice dialogue and local customs in different situations: a restaurant, a store and at a friend's house. These lessons are all completely customizable and teachers can edit them to suit the needs of their students.
