Three 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:
Is there a best age at which to learn a second language? is from Quartz.
Can Texas Figure Out How to Teach English to Immigrant Children? is from The Atlantic.
English Language Learners with Learning Disabilities is a video from Colorin Colorado. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Assisting ELLs With Special Needs – Help Me Find More.
California’s Existing Gaps in EL Education is from Ed Central.
Reclassifying English Language Learners: What’s the effect on Wisconsin high schoolers? is from The Brookings Institution. Other research has come to different conclusions.
PlayPhrase is a site somewhat similar to Divii – it lets you type in words or phrases, and then shows video clips of them being said. I learned about it from AnthonyTeacher.com. I’ve added it to The Best Reference Websites For English Language Learners.
