When to teach this lesson plan on books and reading

The purpose of this lesson is to introduce vocabulary around books and reading. Students will learn about technical vocabulary and use this to answer questions and analyze text. You should use this lesson with students at the intermediate level. Specifically, you should use this lesson with students who are looking to improve their speaking skills. Ultimately you will provide students with controlled and free tasks to promote fluency in speaking.

Before you teach, keep in mind…

For our speaking lessons aimed at Intermediate proficiency level and above, there is no reading activity section in the middle of the lesson. When dealing with speaking topics at higher levels of proficiency, we advise you to familiarize yourself with your students’ cultural background along with the lesson content, to ensure that lesson material is not offensive or inappropriate.

What does this lesson plan on books and reading include?
This lesson includes many activities that help to elicit vocabulary. So it includes several questions and discussion prompts as well as images. This lesson is for advanced students so the questions should be used as conversation starters. These questions will help you to learn more about your student and his/her/their lives and opinions. In addition, this lesson includes quotes for students to describe and analyze. Though this lesson plan on books and reading is only 15 slides it contains ample opportunities for students to learn about authors, writers, characters and genres.

How to teach this lesson
This lesson includes lots of questions that encourage students to respond to questions. So, throughout the lesson be sure to explain the purpose of these inquiries as some students may not understand them entirely. Also, when introducing vocabulary words, you should provide examples to create context and further clarity. For example, when you introduce what a character is, ensure that you can give an example of a character that the student is familiar with. I know that the Disney characters are well known by ESL students of all ages and levels.
