My ELL Beginners class is finishing up our unit and jobs and careers with a simple research project on careers of their choice.

They write three simple essays about three jobs of interest using this downloadable essay frame and then pick one to use Adobe Spark (which is on The “All-Time” Best 2.0 Tools For Beginning English Language Learners list) and create a video like this one:

You can see more videos at our class blog.

There are some obvious errors that students will fix later this week, as well as making comments on their classmates’ videos. I’ve got to say that Adobe Spark is just about the easiest and most versatile Web 2.0 tool out there. It’s great for speaking practice, and students love showing their videos in class.
