ESL TED Talks is a blog created by Douglas Evans that has lessons he’s created for English Language Learners using TED Talks.
He’s clearly put a lot of work into them, and they could be very useful. They focus almost entirely on comprehension, so a teacher would definitely want to supplement them with strategies to stimulate discussion on the topics of the Talks themselves, and how students could connect the content to their own lives.
I’m adding the link to The Best Teacher Resources For “TED Talks” (& Similar Presentations).
Thanks to Sam Malone for the tip.
Typo: “content” for connect in the last sentence…
Thanks for all you do, Larry!
I was wondering why I got a spike in traffic coming from your site. Thanks for the little write-up. I have to find this Sam person and thank him too.
