Hi, I wanted a 2 week block of lessons for my Year 3/4 English set to produce a travel brochure. This lesson plan is great and I plan to tweak it so that they can either do one about our local town for new students or one to persuade their parents to take them somewhere. Very much appreciate your efforts to put this together.

Hello Emily!!!!!!! Thank you so much for your lesson. I am a teacher of English in Argentina and I started a project called " Our town through English". It is to be applied to students of 2nd year High School and everything you have included here was very useful for me. Thanks for sharing. I hope I can send you the work of my students. The problem is that they don't have computers to work with so it will be much more "hand-made" but I will see if I can scan some of them and I will send them to you.
