Here Are My Next Projects

I’ve got several new projects coming up.

Here they are, in chronological order:

* I’ll have a presentation on “Supporting ELLs Through Differentiation, Motivation & Affirming Error Correction” at VirtuEL on June 23rd. This is a free day of online professional development for educators of ELLs. Learn more here. You can see my presentation, and everyone else’s, at last year’s event here.

* Katie Hull Sypnieski and I are doing a series of videos for Ed Week on differentiated instruction. Look for the first one in mid-summer.

* I’ll be writing my fourth book on student motivation over the next three months. It’s title is Building Intrinsic Motivation in the Classroom: A Practical Guide. You can access free resources from the previous books here.

* The American Educator, the journal of the American Federation of Teachers, will be publishing a lengthy article by us on teaching ELLs. It will appear in its fall issue.

* I’ll be coordinating, as well as teaching a component, of an exciting pilot program we’re doing for Long-Term English Language Learners at our school next year. You can learn more about it here.

* Katie Hull Sypnieski and I will begin work on a second edition of our popular The ESL/ELL Teacher’s Survival Guide.

And, of course, I’ll continue to be blogging here, writing my Ed Week Teacher advice column, and authoring pieces for The British Council and The New York Times Learning Network, not to mention hosting my BAM! Radio Show.

I’ve got a few other things in the hopper, though I’m not ready to share them publicly.  I’ll keep readers posted….

pinsoftheweek

I’m fairly active on Pinterest and, in fact, have curated 13,000 resources there that I haven’t shared on this blog.

I thought readers might find it useful if I began sharing a handful of my most recent “pins” each week (I’m not sure if you can see them through an RSS Reader – you might have to click through to the original post):

Three New & Accessible Resources About Climate Change

 

Here are three new additions to The Best Sites To Learn About Climate Change:

Climate change in the United States presented in 123 red, white and blue stripes is from The Washington Post.

Climate change and life events is an interactive that lets you show how your personal life events correspond to global climate changes.

Earth Time “enables users to interact with visualizations of the Earth’s transformation over time. Combining huge data sets with images captured by NASA satellites between 1984 and 2016, EarthTime brings to life patterns of natural change and human impact.”
