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 and THE BEST RESOURCES, ARTICLES & BLOG POSTS FOR TEACHERS OF ELLS IN 2019 – PART TWO.
In addition, look for our new book on teaching ELLs, which was published in the Spring of 2018 and learn about our next book.
Here are this week’s choices:
Learn Alberta has many samples of ELL writing by grade level. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For K-12 Writing Instruction/Reinforcement.
Netflix and learn – six ways to teach English language skills with television is from The British Council. I’m adding it to The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL.
I’m adding this tweet to The Best Sources For Ideas On How To Use Technology With English Language Learners:
Help students who are learning English with our Teacher Center training guide. This is a great resource for teachers and school leaders to better support ELL students and their families. https://t.co/VDXk0OcGMg pic.twitter.com/t5yiTdTLfR
