Four 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:
Immigrant and Refugee Children: A Guide for Educators and School Support Staff comes from Teaching Tolerance.
The Artistry of Teaching and Arts Integration: Why Your ELs Need You to Embrace Both is from Paridad. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Using Art As A Way To Teach & Learn English – Help Me Find More.
Goal-setting with Students (including FREE worksheet!) is from The Best Ticher. I’m adding it to Best Posts On Students Setting Goals.
I previously posted about a great Jimmy Fallon activity he calls Mad Lib Theater. Teacher Daniel took the idea and “ran with it” – he created some great student hand-outs and a lesson plan that I’m looking forward to trying in my class next week!
Here’s a nice post on Interactive Student Notebooks Set Up. It’s for a Spanish class, but can certainly be modified for an ELL classroom.
Report: Innovative science instruction boosts academic performance among English learners is from Ed Source. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Teaching The Next Generation Science Standards To English Language Learners.
Strengthening Teaching and Learning for ELLs is from The Teaching Channel, and it’s accompanied by some new videos (they only have primary school ones now, but say high school segments are on the way).
California Prepares to Resume Bilingual Education is from Voice of America. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The Multilingual Education Act Ballot Initiative In California.
Desk Olympics is a good post and a must-watch video from Carol Salva.
How schools are helping refugee children to succeed is from The Guardian.
