Introducing our free new ebook – Parsnips in ELT: Stepping out of the comfort zone (Vol. 2)

By Adam Simpson

 

It’s 2016, and what better way to start the new year than with a brand, spanking new e-book for all of my dear readers!

If you’ve already downloaded volume 1 of our series Parsnips in ELT, then you’ll have an idea of what this book is about. The PARSNIP is, as many of you will know, a reference to all those topics that are commonly left out of the standard ELT coursebook: Politics, Alcohol, Religion, Sex, Narcotics, -Isms, Pork.

Written by, Rob Howard, Noreen Lam, David Petrie, Adam Simpson, Mike Smith, T. Veigga and Phil Wade, this ebook has 7 lesson plans for ELT teachers that cover Politics, Alcohol, Religion, Sex, Narcotics, Isms and Pork in an engaging and enjoyable style.

Enjoy a lively start to 2016 with our brand new ebook!

The Parsnips in ELT project is an attempt to provide resources and support for teachers who do want to engage their classes in more meaningful topics and discussions. Or at the very least to do something different!

It is however, up to you and your own personal and professional judgment whether you choose to use these lesson plans in your context and with your classes, or even if you choose to read them at all!

Inevitably, there will be some lessons that you will feel are inappropriate to use and some that you feel will really get the class engaged in the topic and the discussion.
