Example Lesson Plan 1 – Do you want to learn about the world?

A demonstration lesson showcasing ‘Reinvent English’ (formerly named ‘English Alive’), that was part of my Master of Creative Enterprise studies completed through Central Queensland University. A pub trivia style lesson about the world, for English language students from the Sydney College of English. Recorded at the Seymour centre, Sydney, on December 11, 2012.

Attached below are the 5 documents that were used for the lesson. A remarkably successful lesson where students learn interesting facts about the world e.g. populations, wealth, websites, celebrities and win prizes in the process.

The students enjoyed this as they were familiar with the topics and it was active, entertaining and a break from the classroom in an interesting location. They practiced all 4 skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking . All up it takes close to 2 hours to complete and is a weather proof option.

Example Lesson Plan 2 – Centennial Park Adventure

Attached below are the question sheet and vocabulary sheet for an end of course excursion to Centennial Park, Sydney. An active, healthy adventure where students walk (and sometimes run) all over the park getting answers to the questions from statues, monuments, signage and so on. The authors, myself and Jerome Kwo Tseng Vi, created this in 4 – 5 hours.

The students enjoy getting out into the fresh air surrounded by nature. It is active and outside of the classroom away from the concrete jungle of the city. They practice skimming and scanning for information, as well as following directions. All up it takes them about 2 hours to complete.

Example Lesson Plan 3 – Shopping Centre Adventure

Attached below are 4 versions and the answers for a 22 question quiz at a shopping centre in Darling Harbour, Sydney. A remarkably successful lesson where students walk (and sometimes run) around the centre getting answers to the questions from shop windows, centre signage and so on.

The 4 versions are all the same questions but just cut and pasted into different orders so the students don’t walk around as a big group. The author, David Chaplin, created this in 2 – 3 hours.

The students enjoy this as they are familiar with shopping centres and it is active and outside of the classroom. They practice skimming and scanning for information in a real world context . All up it takes them about an hour to complete and it is a weather proof option.
