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 2019 – PART ONE.
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:
How We Can Fairly Assess English Learners is by Valentina Gonzalez. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On “Differentiated Grading” For English Language Learners.
No Bullying in Our School, 4-9 is from Web English. I’m adding it to A Very, Very Beginning List Of The Best Resources On Bullying — Please Suggest More.
‘English-Only’ Laws in Education on Verge of Extinction is from Ed Week.
The Myth of Teaching Morphology is from The Backseat Linguist.
How to Use ‘Gaps’ in Communicative Activities is from The Barefoot TEFL Teacher. I’m adding it to The Best Online Resources For “Information Gap” Activities.
