This lesson is geared towards beginning English language learners who plan to take a U.S. driving test. The goal of this lesson is for learners to be able to recognize various traffic and/or road signs and describe their meanings for the purpose of passing a U.S. driving test and driving safely on the road.

An excellent 30-minute lesson. Primary and supplementary resources are strong. Since the ultimate goal is so important with so much real-world application, i wonder if more assessment-related activities might be helpful as might richer activities. Hard to do in a 30-minute time limit, however, so well done for the time limit.

The worksheets are clear and easy to understand. Since the learners are ESL students, you may want to add a performance aspect to demonstrate they understand the meanings of the words stop, slow, go, etc. Perhaps they could model with cars.
