…For Teaching ELL, ESL, & EFL

“Where Children Sleep”


Where children sleep is the title of a book and a slideshow from The Telegraph showing images of children’s bedrooms from around the world — and the obviousness inequities.

When I teach Beginning ELL’s, I use the Picture Word Inductive Model as my centerpiece instructional strategy (I also describe it in my book). When we discuss bedroom vocabulary, I have students share a disposable camera and they all take photos of their rooms (as well as the rest of rooms inside their home and outside shots). We use them extensively in class.

A slideshow like this could be a very helpful addition to that series of lessons, and would also bring in broader socio-economic issues.
