Jazz English Textbooks
« on: March 08, 2011, 10:46:22 PM »
My co-teacher just gave me two books to use for my middle school after school class entitled 'Jazz English' volumes 1&2.  Has anyone ever used these books before? If so, what lessons worked really well from the books? I will have high level 2nd and 3rd graders.

Thanks!!

I love those books for after school classes. i used them for my 3rd yr MS

The books are pretty self-explanatory. I used all the lessons, except for the one on university

There is tons of opportunity for pair work and "find someone who" type activity.

I focused on the A/B question pages and the FSW question page. I left it to them to go over the vocab

Enjoy :-)

I know this is super old (more than 120 days, anyway), but I thought I'd see if I could get some help using Jazz English with my students.

It's a neat book with a great philosophy. I'm using it was with some younger kids (grade 6 elementary), which is sometimes a bit strange when questions don't apply to them (yeah, don't do the university unit) and I feel a little weird when it talks about alcohol. >_< Anyway, I was wondering if you use any additional materials? The best classes are the Almost Free Talking  heavy days, but since I'm not holding them accountable for the vocabulary and they've been pretty universally lame at doing their writing homework, the discussions have been in a pretty big rut lately.

I think I just need to find the teacher's book. I'm a bit daft and didn't know it existed until really recently and kept wondering where all the tests being mentioned were! I thought I was soooo clever when I snapped up the workbook at Kyobo when I saw it. I hope it's at the the Busan Shinsegae Kyobo. This is pretty much a non-question at this point, but any suggestions would be lovely.

That's that. Time to plan! Thanks, guys.

This book exists! Where is it? It's not at Kyobo. Maybe I'm going insane.
