I’ve shared a few of my ideas of what I’m doing during my daily Newcomer English Language Learners class (see VIDEO: HERE’S AN EXAMPLE OF MY DAILY ONLINE LESSON FOR ELL NEWCOMERS).
I know there are a lot of other great ideas out there.
There have been four Google slides presentations of different ideas that I’ve seen shared regularly on social media that are filled with some cool ideas.
It’s not exactly clear to me who has put some of them together – if you know, please let me know.
And if you have other resources and ideas to add, also please let me know (you might also be interested in THE BEST ONLINE TOOLS FOR REMOTE TEACHING – SHARE YOUR OWN):
