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.


Here is an Apple Commercial that never aired, narrated by Steve Jobs. Show it to your students and discuss what makes great people great:
