Reviewer Comments:

This resource provides a lesson plan on global warning for two 80 minute high school classes. While the lesson is directed to high intermediate ESL students, it is a strong lesson for all students. Students will see the video, A Global Warning, learn basic vocabulary and interact with texts about global warming. Students are asked to engage in comprehension exercises on and off line and discuss global footprint surveys and environmental concerns – globally and locally.
