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:
Getting to grips with project based learning and I’m interested in project based learning but I don’t know where to begin! are two good posts by Adam Simpson discussing PBL and English Language Learners. I’m adding them to The Best Sites For Cooperative Learning Ideas.
Pupils with English as a second language ‘outperform native speakers’ is an intriguing article in The Telegraph.
Helping language learners become language researchers: wordandphrase.info (part 2: 3 activities) is a two-part post by Lizzie Pinard about using an interesting website called WordandPhrase.
ELLs’ Literacy Improved Under Popular Instructional Model, Study Finds is from Education Week. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Developing Academic English Skills & Vocabulary.
Using Centers and Stations to Teach World Language is from Calico Spanish, but very applicable to ESL/EFL classrooms. I think it’s a very helpful post.
