Turklish TEFL » ESL Lesson Plans Here are a collection of lesson plans that have been created with adult Turkish learners in mind although most lessons could easily be used in any country. Each lesson aims to address the unique environment of the Turkish classroom and to help with obstacles faced by many teachers here. I will try to provide lessons that will highlight features of the Turkish classroom and perhaps set a template for creating future lessons along the same lines. A lot of these lesson plans will be linked to discussions on my main blog. You can click on the link under the lesson plan to check out the blog portion.

Regular Verbs in the Past Tense – Running Dictation – The Canswedian English Teacher If you have been a regular on my blog, you know that I try to do a lot of activities that allow the students to move. I do this for a number of reasons. Students have an attention span of about 20 minutes, so if I really want them to understand something I usually make it into an activity that is “fun.” (This is according to my intense researching on Wikipedia)The poor little nuggets sit in a chair for most of the day, so why not have them up and moving around?I have a lot of students with ADD/ADHD/Dyslexia etc so doing something multi-sensory helps these studentsAnd last but not least – I am competitive – so doing competitions and moving around the classroom amuses me.
