Five years ago I began this regular feature where I share a few posts and resources from around the Web related to ESL/EFL or to language in general that have caught my attention.
You might also be interested in The Best Resources, Articles & Blog Posts For Teachers Of ELLs In 2017 – So Far. and The Best Resources, Articles & Blog Posts For Teachers Of ELLs In 2017 – Part Two. Also, check out A Collection Of My Best Resources On Teaching English Language Learners.
In addition, look for our next book on teaching ELLs, which will be published in the Spring of 2018.
Here are this week’s choices:
Here’s an English/Spanish glossary for art classes. I’m adding it as an “addendum” to The Best Multilingual & Bilingual Sites For Math, Social Studies, & Science.
The Metropolitan Center for Research on Equity and the Transformation of Schools has developed an incredible collection of multilingual glossaries for just about every academic subject area and grade. I’m adding it to the same list.
The United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has a ton of resources in multiple languages. In order to access them, you first have to search anything you want in the search box on the home page. Then, in the upper left hand corner of the page you’ll see a link to “Site.” Click on the arrow there and you will see links to different languages. I’m adding this info to the same list.
Themes I’m Seeing in ELL Education: Fall 2017 Edition is by Diane Staehr Fenner.
Stem For ELS looks like a very useful site. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Teaching The Next Generation Science Standards To English Language Learners and to The Best Resources For Teaching Common Core Math To English Language Learners.
You can access ELPAC practice tests, which is the assessment being used in California to replace CELDT to evaluate student English proficiency.
Teaching with Infographics: A Modern Approach to Posters is by Tan Huynh. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Creating Infographics.
Massachusetts Law Paves the Way for More Bilingual Education is from Ed Week.
I’ve used this video with my Beginning ELLs to teach both family and food. I use it with the strategy called “Back to the Screen” (see The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL for more info):
