Booklet for Day 1 - ESL course

I mentioned in the "Study Plan for Day 1" a "booklet" teachers could give out. By putting together the materials mentioned in "Study Plan for Day 1" and others found under the heading "Free 1st Year Materials", you can easily publish a short booklet for your students. You will soon have 10, 20 or even more pages to print in recto/verso to save trees! And impress your students! Here is more advice on how to do it.


Start with a cover. This file can be modified to suit your needs. Just type in the name of your school, your name and your colleagues names and the title of the course. Give a date too.

Supply a calendar for the coming school year. It is a convenient way to work on numbers and dates while scheduling presentations or assignments. This one is for 2007-08, but the same one can be updated easily each year just by moving the column of dates up or down. If you do not have WORD or if WORD shuts down on frequently, you can open all WORD documents with OPEN OFFICE, which is free. You will find it on the Internet.
