ESL lesson plans with texts for listening and reading comprehension

Our ESL lesson plans have texts for listening and reading comprehension. You can ask the advanced students to listen to the text once or twice and then answer the questions. With lower levels however, you may have to ask your students to read the text by themselves and then answer the questions.

After the text has been read or listened to, the students are encouraged to participate in a discussion on a given topic. If the topic presents a controversial issue, such as Global warming, the teacher may engage students in a debate.

The questions to the texts are provocative in nature and try to urge your students to think critically and generate original ideas on the issue under discussion. We have tried these texts with many ESL students in our own classes and it seems like these questions can really incite interesting debates and discussions.
