This is an overall great "idea" book for the ESL classroom.It is
basically a book of activities for each different aspect of language
teaching. It devotes entire units to more difficult-to-teach topics
such as developing listening skills. Most of the activities are
extremely interactional and would enhance student's communicative
abilities, either directly or indirectly. This book is a great resource
for finding just the right activity for your lesson plan. All
activities are also easily adaptable for level and for subject area.
The second book in this series, "More Recipes for Tired Teachers" is available on Englishtips.
