New Businesses Want to Sell Fake Meat to China

MAE Student Council Spring 2019

Welcome to MAE ESL 6.  I have left all the copies for the class on the wooden desk.  This lesson plan has been posted to our blog, Milpitaschat.com.  If you can, find a teacher to help you logon to my computer and go to Milpitaschat.com.  If you can't,that's ok.  Please contact me at jgagliar@musd.org 

Students read and complete exercises below.  Correct and discuss the exercise, then move on to the next exercise.  Grammar note--I left a handout that summarizes the passive voice--please refer to this handout before you start the exercise.  The students received this handout last week

If possible, let the students listen to the following article by clicking the mp3 player below.  (If that is not possible, skip listening to the mp3 and go to the next step).

Distribute the article.

Students read the article silently, annotating their text for new vocabulary, new questions, etc.

Direct the students to share their annotations with a partner for 2 or 3 minutes.
