Your English 34 End of the World Pt1
I hope this recording (part 1 with part 2 in podcast 34) with both a continuous reading and a listen & repeat part will help you to progress. This subject is still very up to date and addresses one of the many issues we are faced with today—the influence of the media in our lives. This is the story of a radio play by Orson Welles that made Americans believe Martians had come to make war on the world. After the listen & repeat part there are discussion questions that students can take down in dictation and then discuss in class.
For teachers there is a complete lesson plan with written and oral worksheets as well as debate questions and assignments in our ESL lessons planssection.
The transcript, workseets and oral exercises are to be found in DOC format in both the DVD and the downloadable versions of QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book. They are part of the 1,500 files available in this digital book. The script in DOC format is also to be found in the pack of "Your English" scripts available in the store for a minimal fee.
