This collection of lesson plans for teaching English as a Second Language includes the following: "You Scratched Me!" which has students examine verbs in three forms (base, past, and progressive) together with questions, accelerating the memorization and understanding of verb forms and tenses; "Getting Acquainted/Inferential Thinking," which provides an exercise in inference and has students apply the knowledge to how body language, words, and actions help people understand what is happening in a play even if they do not understand the language well; "Let's Create Job Biographies," which helps adult learners relate their knowledge of work in their home countries to a workplace in the United States; "Let's Talk about Work!" which helps adult learners explore career options through oral interaction with peers after a visit to a work place; "Student-Generated Sentences," which encourages students to use and internalize grammatical structures in English; "Community Language Learning," which encourages and promotes real conversations in English with beginning language learners; and "Where Is the Monkey?" which has students answer yes/no questions using the verb "be" with prepositions.
