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:
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.
