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 2018 – 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:
Sentence Stems or Sentence Frames is by Valentina Gonzalez. I’m adding it to The Best Scaffolded Writing Frames For Students.
The Internationals Network for Public Schools: Educating Our Immigrant English Language Learners Well is from Stanford.
Storybooks Canada and World Stories are two sites with many bilingual and multilingual stories. I particularly liked World Stories because it has bilingual books in English/Pashto, and those are hard to find. I’m adding them to The Best Multilingual & Bilingual Sites For Learning English.
The Inference Collection features images with accompanying prompts for students. I think it can be very useful. I learned about it from Altagracia H Delgado. I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons.
SELF-PORTRAIT IDEAS FOR ESL STUDENTS is from English Teaching 101.
The Song Activity Factory has lots of song-related ELL lessons. I’m adding it to The Best Music Websites For Learning English.
This would be a good video to show to ELLs and then have them talk and write about what they saw:
