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:
The February issue of my favorite language-teaching journal, Humanising Language Teaching, is now online.
Translate this: How real-time translation breaks down barriers when you don’t speak the language is from USA Today. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Google Translate & Other Forms Of Machine Translation.
Integrating Language While Teaching STEM is a “NCELA Teaching Practice Brief.” I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Teaching The Next Generation Science Standards To English Language Learners.
Thousands of Hmong and Lao Americans face deportation under Trump proposal is from Minnesota Public Radio. I’m adding it to The Best Websites To Learn About The Hmong.
Today, we’re having all 400 ELLs take a practice ELPAC test. ELPAC is the California state required English test, and this year is the first time it’s all taken online. Wish us all luck. I’ll be posting what students say about it.
