The ESL reading lesson plan that I’m going to share with you today is modelled after that and it can provide you with a solid foundation upon which to expand and adjust to suit the needs of your own classes. (If your classes are focused on speaking, check out this ESL Speaking Lesson Plan Template). There are five basic ESL lesson plan steps for a class focused on reading that I’ll describe below.

The Life of Pi: book review – level 1 The book and its author The Life of Pi is about a teenage boy from India, called Pi, who travels across the Pacific Ocean in a lifeboat. His companion in the lifeboat is an enormous tiger. It was written by the Canadian author Yann Martel, and has sold seven million copies worldwide. The story At the start of the book, we learn about Pi’s childhood in India. When Pi is 16, his family decide to close the zoo and move to Canada. Pi and the tiger spend 227 days in the lifeboat. What do you think? Three teenagers give their opinions on The Life of Pi. I think it’s an excellent book and I couldn’t stop reading it. I didn’t like this book because it’s very slow and boring. What a fascinating book! Robin Newton
