lesson plan archives

Here are links to some of my ESL lesson plans. All of these are original with the exception of those denoted by an asterisk (*). The files are available for download in both .doc and .pdf format, except for those published as Google Docs.

All of these are geared towards middle school students ranging in ability from upper low to upper intermediate. The vast majority of them, however, can be adjusted to be more difficult.


– includes three variations

Future Tense*

– includes two variations

*The fortune teller lesson seems to be a popular ESL plan, although I wrote the particulars of this one. The horoscope lesson is original.


*customized for my classroom, but originally created by Drew Soloski

Personal Ads*

*customized for my classroom/adjusted to middle school level, but originally created (PowerPoint included) by Rebecca Heeb
