I’ve started a somewhat regular feature where I share a few posts and resources from around the Web related to ESL/EFL or to language in general that have caught my attention:
The nine golden rules of using games in the language classroom is by Adam Simpson.
Immigrants’ education varies by country is an interesting report from The BBC.
Story telling: the language teacher’s oldest technique is by Mario Rinvolucri and appeared on the British Council website. I’m adding it to The Best Digital (& Non-Digital) Storytelling Resources.
This is a helpful Slideshare from Graham Stanley:
Common Core and ELLs: Planning Professional Development for Colleagues (Part 1) is from Colorin Colorado.
Richard Byrne has blogged about the PBS Math Club, which is a YouTube Channel of interactive videos (and that are also closed-captioned). I think they could be very accessible to English Language Learners.
15+ different Vocabulary Methods (How to teach words) is from Carissa Peck. I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where ELL’s Can Learn Vocabulary.
The British Council has many ideas for teaching vocabulary. I’m adding that link to the same list.
