ESOL: ESOL Writing: text focus (composition), ESOL Rt/E3.1a, ESOL Rt/L1.1a

Free tags: New Year

Context: History

Level: E3, L1

Resource type: Interactive presentation, Reading comprehension, Sort or match cards, Worksheet or assignment, Writing prompts

This is an activity on New Year. It was written for an E3 ESOL class but could be adapted for E2 fairly easily too. There is a reading comprehension, a group activity, writing practice and also an optional cut-up “top Ten” resolutions activity.

I haven’t done a lesson plan to go with the resources as I think they could be easily adapted and used in different ways.
