I’m taking advantage of my freedom with the upper-level English elective, Cross-Cultural English, to plan some fun and kinda-challenging lessons. In this class the teachers can basically do whatever they want as long as it’s somehow “cultural,” so I’m trying to give students confidence finding, understanding, and using “real English” in sources like movies, songs, and blogs. I’ll be posting lesson plans on the internet because……. I put work into these things, and I hope they won’t be automatically left and forgotten??
