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:
Teacher leadership to support English language learners appeared in Phi Delta Kappan.
American Girl: A Story of Immigration, Fear and Fortitude appeared in The Washington Post.
‘Walls That Talk’ Give Students Tools for Writing Independently (Video) is from The Teaching Channel.
Four Steps Schools Should Take to Identify Gifted English-Learners is from Ed Week.
Latin may help students bridge their native language with English is from the Science Daily.
I just learned about the TEFL Commute Podcast, which is a podcast for ELL teachers. The only other two podcasts for ELL teachers (there are lots for students) are ones by Carol Salva and ELLevation. Let me know if I’m missing any.
Duolingo, CAPTCHA co-founder Luis von Ahn wins prestigious Lemelson-MIT prize is from NBC News.
Here are some tweets giving examples of how to introduce books by labeling their covers:
