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.

Here are this week’s choices:.
Ekuwah Moses writes a great description of the Picture Word Inductive Model instructional strategy. I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons.
Infographics about English is a nice collection from Pearson English. I’m adding it to The Best Infographics About Teaching & Learning English As A Second (or Third!) Language.
Creative strategies for encouraging English learners to talk about and apply their learning is from Education Northwest. I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Use “3-2-1″ As An Instructional Strategy.
Preschools play key role in preparing English learners for kindergarten is from Ed Source.
Portland Dual-Language-Immersion Students Outperform Peers in Reading is from Education Week.
Study Offers Snapshot of Global English-Language-Learner Trends is also from Ed Week.
WIDA has a small collection of videos demonstrating ELL lessons in the classroom (thanks to reader Kristina for the tip). I’m adding it to The Best Online Videos Showing ESL/EFL Teachers In The Classroom.
Education Next has a lengthy article about ELLs that’s worth reading for the statistics, but I don’t agree with with much of its perspective.
