I’m probably being dim, but where is the text??
Umm, Landmark Advanced Unit 10.2, as it says at the top…
no link to that unit??
And how exactly would I link to a textbook unit?? If you really want to do this activity, obviously you will need to either buy the book or adapt it to match one of the texts in your own textbook.
“If you really want to do this activity, obviously you will need to either buy the book or adapt it to match one of the texts in your own textbook.”
lol not gonna buy a book in order to do this activity. I usually share and swap activities BECAUSE of a lack of a material/resources.
Anyway, congratulations on making a lesson plan.
If you really do go online just to use other people’s resources, then this page is definitely not for you. Personally, I only go online to find ideas and lists of language which I can use to make materials are more suitable for my own classes and literally never just print off something and use it, but maybe that’s just me…
