Usually Not My Style…
I’m really, really not one to use a lot of other people’s stuff in my classes. I usually just combine the best from the textbook that I’m given and then make the rest of my own materials-surveys, board games, presentation projects, or lesson plans. I usually think that making my own activity or game is way better than searching around for hours on the Internet trying to find something that I can actually use.
But, the one thing that I do use in each and every single one of my university classes here in South Korea is The Monster Pack (Click here to view more details). It’s legit and delivers the good, minus all the fluffy stuff. Seriously, it’s a fabulous resource for busy teachers (like me!), who are doing other stuff like seeing the world, writing a book or building a website empire.
I use The Monster Pack for three things:
- The trivia as a warm-up for all my classes. It’s hard to find stuff for adults with simple language and not America or UK-centric. Trust me. I’ve looked and haven’t found it until the Monster pack.
- The writing activities. They’re stellar, unlike most of the other junk out there on the Internet and my students have found them extremely helpful.
- The logic puzzles. Perfect for a “rainy day” activity when you’re trying to kill a bit of time after a test or something. Seriously, just copy and go and your students will be entertained for at least 30 minutes, if not far longer.
I’ve used the Monster Pack exclusively for my adults students, but it has the potential to work quite well with middle school and high school students as well. The level is a range from high-beginner to advanced.
