The students will learn: (1) the origin of the name of the.month of January, (2) the Greek version of the Creation of the world, (3) the powers of Jupiter, Neptune, and Pluto, and (4) the Creation of Man. Please refer to the section on January.
E.S.O.L. A (Elementary Level)
1. Students ar to copy the first paragraph explaining the origin of the name of the month of January and the god Janus,
2. The students will circle those words in the Paragraph(s) that they are not familiar with.
3. The students will write new sentences with the words after these have been defined. The words, definitions, and sentences will be kept in their notebooks.
4. Students will draw their own conception of Janus. The drawings will be put up ‘collage-style’ on a bulletin board.
5. The students will discuss the terms two-faced, Janus faced.
Each level of E.S.O.L. should be given work appropriate to its ability. I suggest the first paragraph for E.S.O.L-A, paragraphs one and three for E.S.O.L-B, and all three paragraphs for the other levels. To avoid repetition in writing the lesson plans, the above format may be used in developing the other monthly plans.
The teacher is to dccide how much information from the unit that he or she wants to give to their students, since much of what can be done in each classroom depends on the ability in English the students have acquired up to January.
