Why Purchase "QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book"?
Why purchase a Digital ESL Resource Book?
There is so much excellent material on the Internet today so for what reason should a teacher read "QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book" ?
The answer is simple.
With all these excellent teaching materials available you still need a structure to build a course, your own course.
You need to know...
*what will truly motivate your students,
*what will make them do their assignments
*what will help them create their own personal sentences.
The chapters of "QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book" are designed to assist you in constructing your course by helping you...
*Give your students clear instructions,
*Schedule their presentations,
*Explain and organize tutorials, i.e., one-to-one sessions,
*Provide concrete examples of what you expect from your students,
*Motivate them to speak about their "passions" and not just "texts",
*Evaluate their skills both in writing and speaking in a positive way.
As a result you will encourage them to make even greater progress.

As the author of QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book
I recommend the use of internet ESL sites. Many offer wonderful documents free of charge. I can suggest for instance for intermediate to advanced students www.breakingnewsenglish.com, www.esldiscussions.com, www.wordchamp.com or other websites on my page of useful websites.
But remember you want to elaborate a logical structure for your course. You want your students to learn from your course for the rest of their lives. You want them to keep their precious documents (preferably in booklets) as references and not just throw away the photocopies at the end of the school year. You want to evaluate them fairly so that they will progress rapidly. All these problems of motivation, organization, language acquisition and evaluation are discussed in "QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book". And of course there is the Document Annex with more than 1,500 files. Finally, examples of student work will encourage you to use the principle of "teaching by example".
Good luck to you all for the coming school year!
