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:

Vocabulary building and revision tools is from Adam Simpson. I’m adding it to The Best Sites Where ELL’s Can Learn Vocabulary.

California’s ELA/ELD Framework: Bringing It All Together is from Colorin Colorado.

Science curriculum tailored to English language learners boosts student achievement is from Eureka Alert.

Immigrant Influxes Put U.S. Schools to the Test is from Ed Week.

Own-language use in ELT: exploring global practices and attitudes is a free eBook from the British Council about student use of their home language in the English classroom.

Sounds Like A Story is from ELT Cation. I’ve used sound effects to help students learn vocabulary, but this blog post describes a cool lesson that takes that idea several steps further.

TEFL Tunes is a for-pay site providing some excellent song lessons for ELLs, and they also offer quite a few free resources. I’m adding it to The Best Music Websites For Learning English.
