I’ve recently started a regular feature where I share a few posts from around the Web related to ESL or EFL that have caught my attention:

On Teaching Effective Learning is from Teacher 2 Teacher, and shares some good ideas for student reflection.

Smile is a nice lesson plan, including materials, and is from Film English.

How to make things fall apart – A behaviour model for creating incompetence is an excellent post by Maria Constantinides.

Beating the Humdrum is from Language Moments, and has some excellent ideas on how to “liven-up” a less than interesting textbook. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Adapting Your Textbook So It Doesn’t Bore Students To Death.
