“For The Birds” Is A Good Video For ELLs

“For The Birds” is a good video for English Language Learners – they can watch it and, then, describe what they saw.

It works well on that kind of “surface” level. In addition, if you want, it can work on a “deeper” level, too, if you want to explore the issue of how we treat others who might look or act differently.

As This Blog Approaches Its Tenth Anniversary, Here’s One Way I’ll Be Celebrating It!

111343005

In about six months, this blog will be celebrating its ten-year anniversary!

Leading up to it, I’m re-starting a series I tried to do in the past called “A Look Back.”

Each week, I’ll be reposting a few of my favorite posts from the past ten years. I’ve published over 20,000 of them, so I’ve got a lot to choose from :)

Look for the first “reposts” later this week.

I’m open to commemorating the event in other ways, too, and am open to hearing ideas from readers. Let me know if you have any suggestions…
