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:
Still images and language learning is a very interesting post by Nick Bilbrough. I think his ideas are very creative. They are a nice complement to a project we did last year: The Mannequin Challenge, ELLs & A Frozen Tableau.
Linguician is a new site that teaches languages through music. If you have Spanish-speakers in your class, they have a program for them to learn English. I’m adding it to The Best Music Websites For Learning English.
Immigration crackdown taking heavy toll on California students is from Ed Source. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On The Trump Administrations New Immigration Enforcement Policies.
Starting October 3, Understanding Language (from Stanford) will offer three online professional development courses sponsored by the Gates Foundation and S.H. Cowell Foundation to impact instructional practice, programs, and policy in order to create more meaningful learning experiences for language learners. There are two strands available for participants – one focused on instruction and the other on leadership. (Download and Share Courses Flyer)
