The Beatles | Podcast #126
2012 marks 50 years since the Fab Four became The Beatles. The band’s hometown of Liverpool is having a year long celebration in the band’s honor, including special events on August 18th and 19th, when Ringo Starr first joined the band, and when the band had its first gig at “The Cavern”.
We received many requests for a lesson plan on this legendary band, and were excited to fill this request in 2012. Our NEW Beatles lesson plan is now available in our Famous People section. Our podcast today offers an audio preview of our lesson plan on the Fab Four. In the lesson plan, students read a short bio about the band. In addition to vocabulary review and comprehension questions, students are encouraged to go an extra step and do a little research into what it means to be “knighted”. Update – We also have a beginner-level lesson plan and podcast on the Beatles.
View our entire Famous People lesson plan collection, and feel free to suggest future lessons. We love getting requests from teachers!
Please introduce your students to our FREE podcasts. These can act as a preview to our Biography, Holiday, Discussion Starter, or Grammar Story 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.
