EBAY....descriptive writing with incentive

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

I teach ESL in a small community in Iowa. Although teaching is my main job, I also go to auctions and garage sales where I find treasures I sell through EBAY, an internet auction site. I decided I could bring in some items to my classroom and my ESL students would write a detailed description on an item such as a figurine or any any other item which would sell. The incentive for a well written description is that 10% of the profits are placed in a fund to do something fun with the class. The students also learn math skills since they have to keep track of the cost and profit of each item. Darrell Headings
