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 2018 – 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 new book on teaching ELLs, which was published in the Spring of 2018.
Here are this week’s choices:

Exploring a Local Community Through Writing: Examples of Writing Assignments is from TESOL. I’m adding it to A Lesson Highlighting Community Assets — Not Deficits.
Try Drama and Role Play with English Learners is from Middleweb. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Using Drama In The Classroom.
