Steve Jobs (1955-2011) ESL English Lesson Plan

“Being the richest man in the cemetery doesn’t matter to me … Going to bed at night saying we’ve done something wonderful… that’s what matters to me.” ~ Steve Jobs

On October 5th, 2011, Apple co-founder, Steve Jobs died. Jobs was 56 years old, and had been struggling with complications related to pancreatic cancer over the past several years.

Steve Jobs has always been a huge inspiration to all of us at ESL Library and Red River Press, and we are very saddened to hear of his death. We have revised our ready-made ESL Lesson Plan on Steve Jobs. A beginner-level lesson on Steve Jobs is also available.
