Video Of Sneaky Cat Great For ELLs

Showing fun videos to English Language Learners and having them write and describe what they see is always a winning language-development strategy.

Here’s one that I’m adding to The Best Video Clips Of Sneaky Critters — Help Me Find More.

Video(s): My #VirtuEL17 Session On SEL & ELLs (Plus Supporting Links) & Everyone Else’s Session, Too!

The #VirtuEL17 online conference for teachers of English Language Learners took place this morning.

I spoke about many instructional strategies during that brief session. Here are some links to find additional related resources:
