Five 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.
You might also be interested in The Best Resources, Articles & Blog Posts For Teachers Of ELLs In 2017 – So Far. and The Best Resources, Articles & Blog Posts For Teachers Of ELLs In 2017 – Part Two. Also, check out A Collection Of My Best Resources On Teaching English Language Learners.
In addition, look for our next book on teaching ELLs, which will be published in the Spring of 2018.
Here are this week’s choices:
Culturally Responsive Instruction for Holiday and Religious Celebrations is from Colorin Colorado.
Making State Report Cards Work for English Learners is from New America.
Goal Setting with ELLs is by Valentina Gonzalez. I’m adding it to Best Posts On Students Setting Goals.
The December issue of my favorite ESL/ELL journal, Humanising Language Teaching, is now available for free online https://t.co/UGPSsrX5jY

I really like this writing assignment. I’m adding it to Best Posts On Writing Instruction :
This episode of @EdsNotDeadPC https://t.co/EVAOQeusOf with @Ready4rigor really inspired me to take more risks with my sheltered ESOL US History class. Tomorrow, I'm having them write their own personal version of Langston Hughes' "I, Too" poem. Thanks for the inspiration!!! pic.twitter.com/b4thbZ1HiU

Had my #ESOL #ELL #ESL students write their own I,Too poems, a la Langston Hughes. Having high expectations for students is the most powerful classroom practice. Just because they are learning English doesn’t mean they don’t have a story to tell!! Blessed to be able to teach them pic.twitter.com/Qnrah8oy5B
