Here are my choices for The Best Resources, Articles & Blog Posts For Teachers Of ELL’s In 2015 – So Far:
Jellybean Scoop provides free daily new content for students to read. They don’t “level” the same text, they do provide different articles at different levels of accessibility. Each article provides audio support for the text. More importantly, they also provide a number of interactive exercises for each article. Thankfully, they are not just comprehension questions (though they do have that, too). The other activities include sentence scrambles and vocabulary exercises. They also provide an opportunity for readers to record their voice reading portions of the articles after they hear it read to them. Teachers can create an account for up to one hundres students for free and track student progress. Teachers register and then easily create student accounts.
I write a regular monthly post for the British Council, like this one on ESL/ELL error correction – Yes, No or Maybe?
Using Video In The Classroom – A Teacher’s Handbook is from David Deubelbeiss.
I wrote several more posts for The New York Times, and you can see them all at All My NY Times Posts For English Language Learners – Linked With Descriptions
Make Beliefs, the popular comic-creator that is on The Best Ways To Make Comic Strips Online list, has just unveiled a new and expansive resource section filled with free materials for teachers of English Language Learner students.
Inductive and deductive grammar teaching: what is it, and does it work? is from the English Language Teaching Global Blog. I’m adding it to The Best Resources About Inductive Learning & Teaching.
Academic Language Function Toolkit is from the Sweetwater School District and looks very useful. Maria Dove shared it on Twitter. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Developing Academic English Skills & Vocabulary.
Video For All has a ton of resources about using video in language-teaching. I’m adding it to The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL (& How To Use Them).
Games for the language classroom: Who wants to be a millionaire is another great post by Adam Simpson. I’m adding it to The Best Ideas For Using Games In The ESL/EFL/ELL Classroom.
I’m going to add the resource shared in this tweet to The “All-Time” Best Resources, Articles & Blog Posts For Teachers Of English Language Learners. It’s a gold mine!
