Introducing Lesson Sets!

What Lesson Sets are

You would like to use ESL Brains lessons more often but struggle to decide on the best order to use them in. Sounds familiar? We have great news: the perfect solution is here in the form of Lesson Sets! Lesson Sets will save you loads of prep time and allow for a more structured teaching and learning experience, while allowing for flexibility (because we know that each student or group is different). The lessons in each set are connected by topic or function.

Each Lesson Set consists of standalone lesson plans which have already been published on the website. This means that you might have used some of the lesson plans in the past and that you can still use them as standalone lesson plans. The Lesson Sets, however, allow you to follow a sequence of lessons in the way that best suits your students’ needs and likes. In the sets, you will find some teaching tips on how to use the specific lesson sequence seamlessly. 

The sets contain lessons available under different subscriptions (Free, Premium and Unlimited). However, to be able to use entire sets, it is necessary to be an Unlimited subscriber

How Lesson Sets work

To browse Lesson Sets, use the search filter or click here.

Lesson Sets are easy to spot as they are marked with a grey frame and ribbon (see on the right). Check if the level is right and see how many lessons are in the set. A quick glance at the set description will tell you whether the set is useful for your students.

Once you open the set (see on the right), take a look at the short set overview to make sure the set objectives align with yours. Then, scroll down or use the button to see the lessons in the set.

You will see several lessons listed in a particular order (see below). Use the lessons in the suggested order. Sometimes, there is more than one lesson to choose from, like in the case of Lesson 2A and Lesson 2B below. In this case, check the brief lesson descriptions to choose the lesson which is better suited to your students’ needs. We suggest you use one of the lessons only to avoid being overly repetitive.

What to remember when using Lesson Sets

The lesson descriptions also contain some teaching tips (see on the right) that will make your students’ learning experience seamless. For instance, you might need to encourage students to use a specific grammar structure or vocabulary set in a particular exercise/slide, draw their attention to a structure used in a given task, or ask them to remember and use certain phrases throughout the lesson.  

More Lesson Sets and more lesson plans

Lesson Sets are a game-changer! They mean less prep time, more structure and happier students. We are going to group more and more lessons into sets so browse them from time to time to see what’s new. 

While sets are an awesome new website feature, we will keep publishing three new standalone lesson plans a week. Some of them will probably become parts of sets, too. 

Ready? Choose a set, try it out and let us know how it went!
