Reading Lesson Plan ideas to English Facts & Figures

Unread post by leon_miami » 21 Feb 2014, 14:08

Hi everyone. Need some help with a 60 minutes reading lesson plan about English Facts and Figures e.g english is spoken by millions of people.

Any ideas on a warm up activity to get students interested in this topic and vocabulary i can pre-teach?

Also some ideas on some reading tasks i could give them would be great.

Struggling to find some ideas at the moment. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you :D

As a warmer, you could put the students into groups and have them brainstorm countries where English is the official language. They might be surprised!

For your own reference, you can get a list of countries from Wikipedia by searching, "List of countries where English is an official language."
