ESL Digital Calendar for 2018-2019 and Sign-up Charts

Using calendars and sign-up charts to schedule class activities

In QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book Version 2.0, you will find numerous calendars and sign-up charts in DOC. You can "customize" the DOC files to make them your own. You will write your name(s), your school, and the days when you teach, as you can see in the example from the past. It is a straightforward way to produce a new calendar every year.

An example from the year 2018-2019

The calendars below are in PDF, but year after year, you can quickly update the DOC files in our digital book simply by adjusting the columns of dates under each month. It takes ten minutes at the most.

Two examples of what the students would have seen if they had started in 2018:
Term 1:

PDF - 71.4 kb

Term 2:

My first calendar

A long time ago, a professor in the sciences showed me a similar calendar, handwritten on paper. It inspired me to make up versions adapted to our English course. We used them to have students sign up for activities—mainly presentations such as talks and tutorials.

A date and number activity

The signing up becomes an excellent "date and number activity" on its own. While choosing the dates of their presentations, the students will be practicing the language in an authentic context. They would raise their hands and say, for example, "I would like to do my tutorial on Wednesday, October 3rd. Or "We would like to do our project presentation with my partner X on Thursday, December 2nd."

GOOD NEWS!

The NEW EDITION of QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book Version 2.0 in a ZIPs is now available! You will find more than 1,500 files, most of which you can customize, for instance, the calendar.

Good luck! I hope these calendar and sign-up chart ideas work as well for you as they have always done for my team and myself.
