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:
Immigrant Minors From Central America Bring Hope, Past Trauma to U.S. Schools is from The Hechinger Report. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The Children Refugee Crisis At The U.S. Southern Border.
David Deubelbeiss at EFL Classroom 2.0 has announced that if people join prior to the first of the year, they will have free access to all site materials. If you join afterwards, though, you’ll have to pay a nominal fee. Any ESL/EFL teacher would have to be insane not to want to take advantage of the resources there.
A Roomful of Quotes: A Communicative Activity is a nice lesson from TESOL.
Cultivating Academic Language and Literacy in Science Instruction was the title of a recent Webinar, which I believe can be viewed for free. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Teaching The Next Generation Science Standards To English Language Learners.
Five Reasons to Teach English Using Art is a useful post.
The latest issue of my favorite ESL/EFL journal, Humanising Language Teaching, is now available online.
Assessment in the multi-level classroom is from the Oxford Press blog, and offers good advice. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Teaching Multilevel ESL/EFL Classes.
ESL Classroom Routines is a good post from TESOL.
2 simple ideas for adapting your course book is from Lizzie Pinard. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Adapting Your Textbook So It Doesn’t Bore Students To Death
