I have an insane amount of resources on this blog related to teaching English Language Learners.

I thought readers might find it useful if I put together a collection – in one post – of the materials I have either written or brought together (I’ll be posting a similar collections on student motivation and another one on parent engagement, two of the other topics I’ve written about a lot)

Here goes:

I’ll have to start with All My NY Times Posts For English Language Learners – Linked With Descriptions.  I’ve written nearly one-hundred posts for The New York Times Learning Network over the past few years, and practically all of them have focused on teaching English Language Learners.

I’ve written nearly thirty posts for the British Council, the largest organization promoting English-language teaching and learning around the world, and you can see a list of them – with links – here.

I’ve authored or co-authored four books on teaching English Language Learners, and a fourth one will be published next April.  There are a zillion free resources from them, including student hand-outs and lesson plans.  Clicking on each of the book’s titles will lead you to all of those freebies:

The ELL Teacher’s Toolbox: Hundreds of Practical Ideas to Support Your Students was published in 2018.  There are a ton of free resources at that link.

Here are some articles I’ve authored or co-authored about teaching ELLs (several are book excerpts). They’ve appeared in various publications, including The Washington Post, Edutopia, Education Week and ASCD Education Leadership:

I’ve published many columns in my Education Week Teacher “teacher advice” column on Teaching English Language Learners.

Eight-minute radio shows accompany most of the Ed Week columns.  You can find the ELL-related ones at All My BAM! Radio Shows About English Language Learners.

I’ve also made several videos related to ELLs.

Here are a few of the many ELL-related “Best” lists I’ve published (I think these are the most key ones):
