Famous People: Barack Obama #133
Barack Obama is currently campaigning against Mitt Romney in the 2012 US Presidential Election. Many teachers sent in special requests for a lesson plan on Obama this year, and we were more than happy to fill this order. Today’s podcast offers an audio preview of our new lesson plan on Barack Obama. The high-intermediate Barack Obama lesson plan comes with vocabulary review, a reading, comprehension questions, and discussion practice using famous Obama quotes. Students face off to be class president by proving how much they know about the US President. For example: Was Obama the first president to have a twitter account?
Please introduce your students to our FREE podcasts. These can act as a preview to our Mini-Biography, Discussion Starter, Grammar Story, Holiday or Health lessons. They can also serve as extra listening homework to help your learners develop an understanding of the rhythm of English. Some teachers use our weekly podcast (posted every Wednesday) as a warm up for an online tutoring session.
