Two years ago I began this 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:
Why Teachers Are A Key Factor in the Success of Dual Language Learners is from Ed Central.
Here are two interesting posts about “interactive fiction” (text-based “choose your adventure” stories): Interactive Fiction in the Classroom is from Edutopia; TEL: Constructive Gamification in the classroom is from DHSB Teaching. I think these kinds of stories can be fun for ELLs to both read and write. I’m adding them both to The Best Places To Read & Write “Choose Your Own Adventure” Stories.
I’ve previously posted about a game Jimmy Fallon plays on his show that I sometimes use as a language-development activity. It’s called “Box of Lies.” He played it again this week, and here’s the clip:
