Instant Lessons™

How do I find a lesson in the lesson library?

Members have two ways to find lessons in the Instant Lessons Library: browse or search the library.

"Browse library" displays all of the Instant Lessons™ in three categories: lesson type, lesson topic and student level.

"Search library" provides a powerful way to search the lessons and resources to find what you're looking for. Search on keywords, student level and lesson topics. You can also search for grammar points, such as "past continuous".
The Instant Lessons™ layout is carefully designed for printing. Just open the lesson plan you want to use in your browser window and print it out. The Adobe Acrobat Reader format is the best format for printing the lessons. They can also be viewed from within the Teachers’ Room by clicking on the title of the lesson which will open in a new window. You can also print from this window.


Instant Lessons are organized into four main sections. Each has a specific educational goal.
1. Pre-Reading Activities: These activities encourage students to begin thinking about the topic of the article. They raise student interest and introduce important concepts and vocabulary using one or more skills. Designed to take at least 10 minutes, the pre-reading activities may take longer if the teacher needs to focus closely on a specific point or if there is great student interest in the topic. Estimated Time: 10 minutes or more.
2. Reading Activities: These activities focus on the article using a variety of different reading skills. They encourage students to read and understand the article, practice different reading techniques, learn vocabulary from the article and focus on a language point. Estimated Time: Up to 40 minutes.
3. Post-Reading Activities: The teacher can either focus on one skill using a theme, concept or language point or practice a combination of skills. Students use the content of the article to discuss, consider or develop what they've learned. This section offers a selection of extension activities that can take as little as 15 minutes or last well over an hour. Estimated Time: 15 minutes to one hour or more.
4. Teachers' Notes and Answer Key: Each Instant Lesson includes teaching guidelines and answers to exercises. Our goal is to support teachers by giving them as much time as possible to focus on specific learning needs. Teachers' notes may also contain parts of an exercise not included in the student handouts.


Resources - Anna Grammar and Warmers

How do I find a grammar worksheet or a weekly warmer for my class?

From the Teachers' Room, click on "Search Resources" in the left hand menu. There are two ways to find these resources in the resource library: browse or search the library. You can browse the library by clicking "Go". This displays all of the Anna Grammar/Max Vocab/Instant Workbook resources. You can also use the dropdown options by lesson type to choose a specific type of resource.

You can also search using keywords. If looking for a weekly warmer as a fun way to begin your class, you can search by warmer type: Introduction, Spoken Fluency, Grammar or Vocabulary. You are also able to search by level.

Then just open the resource you want to use in your browser window and print it out.



Using "my lessons"

"My lessons" is an easy and convenient way to bookmark your favorite lessons in the Instant Lessons™ Library. Two folders are included with each membership to get you started. These folders can be deleted or added to at any time. For example you may want to add a folder to group lessons for a particular class or level, or search through the library to build a complete course. This is an excellent way to locate your favorite lessons and save them for future use. You can start to build your own textbook of lessons by simply creating folders based on topic, student level or even lesson type.

Technical issues

Why do I keep getting logged off the website?
There are three usual causes for this problem.
1. There is a timeout setting in the website that logs users out of the website automatically after an hour of continuous connection time. This is a safeguard against Internet connections that hang without disconnecting. If this happens while you are actively using the site please login again.
2. There may be a problem with your Internet service provider. Please contact them directly for more information.
3. Someone else may be using your account login name and password. If you suspect this, please change your login details. Learn how here.
