Lesson plan overview
This FREE intermediate ESL lesson plan is dedicated to Pride Month. Students will learn collocations and words used in the context of Pride Month, will watch a short video about the history of Pride Month and will discuss various questions related to Pride Month and the LGBTQIA+ community. A lesson that will go well with his lesson is “Idioms: Gender equality”.
Vocabulary: After an initial discussion, students match the halves of 8 sentences in order to create 8 collocations (e.g. same-sex marriage, gender identity, sexual orientation, to raise awareness, to face challenges). Then students look at 3 photos and discuss which expression is shown in each photo. As additional practice, students complete 6 sentences with the correct word.
Speaking: Students brainstorm potential challenges faced by the LGBTQIA+ community.
Listening: Students watch a video called “What is Pride Month?”. First they answer 4 questions. Then they complete the transcript with the correct form of the words given, and watch the video again to check their answers.
Speaking: Students discuss 5 conversation questions given.
You can use the conversion cards to revise the target vocabulary from this lesson and for further speaking practice.
