Sample Materials to Organize and Start Off a Course
This is to give you an idea of what you can offer your students by using the "QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book".
Here are a few samples to put in the 1st booklet of the year
Please note that the two year course that is presented in the book—with most of the materials used—can be used for all levels from A2 to even C2 as it is a refresher course to brush up on the basic skills.
I wish also to point out that teachers will find in "QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book" on a DVD or the Downloadable Version the “modifiable” documents (DOC files) that they can “customize” to suit their needs and wishes. On this website most documents are in PDF and thus cannot be modified.
Core Curriculum (to be able to explain what your course will cover)
Calendar - an example of what you can do
Participation grade (two versions)
Pair Work Activities with one student as the "teacher" and the other as the "student"
- Spelling exercise (2-page spelling exercise) - students have slightly different pages spells the lines to his or her partner. Here the document is in PDF but on the QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book (on a DVD or the Downloadable Version) this file—like the others—is in DOC, so you can type in the exact lines YOU want your students in spell in class.
- A Review of Frequent Mistakes to be avoided by French-speaking students (UATs = Unspeakably Awful Translations)—on the QualityTime-ESL on a DVD or the Downloadable Version the exercise is in DOC, so it can easily be translated into other languages and thus used all over the world. The mistakes students make seem to be more or less the same everywhere! You can also add or remove expressions as you like, thus personalizing this pair work exercise.
Assignments: Poems to learn expressions and work on word stress
Assignments: grammar in pair work
