This document is part lesson planner and idea resource and part annotated bibliography of electronic resources. The lesson planner is divided into four parts. Part one, "Tables to Go," contains different tables that can be used for a variety of exercises at all levels of the English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) classroom. Part two, "Exploring the Internet for Conversation Ideas" provides many ideas for subjects of conversation practice, including mock job interviews and news reporter interviews of newsmakers or witnesses, and can be used at any level of instruction and learner proficiency. Part three provides a number of activities designed to engage students directly in the target language, including such games as "Alphabet Soup,""Grammar Bingo" and "Vocabulary Journal." The final part introduces creative and innovative ways to use student writing to enhance student oral skills. An annotated bibliography of Internet resources is listed by subject.
