Lesson Writer is a free website that allows teachers to create customized lesson plans and exercises based on text and readings from the Internet. Teachers simply copy and paste a piece of text into Lesson Writer and the program analyzes the text for teachable items including grammar, usage, pronunciation, and vocabulary. Lesson Writer then walks teachers through the design stage, building a lesson in as little as a few minutes. Teachers can save their lessons and track content and skills they have covered over time. A tutorial for ESL teachers is available from the homepage.
