Over the next few days, I’ll be taking a break now-and-then from blogging to both take some R & R and to finish-up some more extended writing projects.
During this short break, I’ll be re-posting some of my favorite posts of 2017.

Last month, I published Guest Post: What ELLs Taught Our School In A Week-Long Empathy Project written by my talented colleague, Pam Buric.
Pam shared about a project we did at our school where our Intermediate English Language Learner students wrote about their personal experiences and then other classes came to learn from them over a week’s time.
Those Intermediate ELLs then helped my Beginning ELL students to write their own stories.
Now, Pam and her Intermediate class have pulled together all of those stories into a downloadable PDF book, which I have permission to share here. The description of the process and all the downloadable materials in Pam’s original post, along with the Beginner and Intermediate models, should make it a lot easier for others who might want to do similar projects (‘ll also add this link to Pam’s original post).
Thanks to Pam and her students!
