Many years ago, I used to teach English as a Second Language at Truman College and many of its satellite locations. In an effort to help students learn English, I used to copy material from a variety of books. Then it occurred to me to create my own book. So I wrote this for my students and used it for a number of years. I called the book Rip-Offs because the idea was for teachers to take each of the one page lessons, rip them out of my book, and copy the lesson as I had done with other material. I almost got it published (I had a contract with Addison-Wesley), but in the end, Rip-Offs was abandoned by the publisher (lost in a corporate merger) and so I remain the sole publisher of Rip-Offs. Although I am disappointed this book never found the light of day, I offer it to you now, for easy download. Here are some of the chapters of Rip-Offs, 100 easy lessons for teaching English as a Second Language. (I’ll periodically add more lessons, but email me at email@example.com. if you’d like more.
