Hi everyone, I want to introduce a great group grammar review activity for the ESL classroom. It helps to get students working as a group and engages them with content in an unconventional way. I found it to be very engaging and interesting for my adult ESL class. It could also be used in the beginning of a unit for ESL classes as well.
I want to make sure I give credit where credit is due. A colleague of mine, Dr. Carolina Correa, gave me the inspiration for the framework of this lesson (i.e. the posters, grammar tenses, etc.) I added the superhero element and the idea of powers, exploits, mission, etc. She is a wonderful teacher and a great inspiration for creativity in the ESL classroom.
Below is the sheet that explains the teacher instructions and student instructions as well.

The formatting may look off, but should be okay when you bring it up in MS Word.
Here are some examples from my Adult ESL class.
