Six 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:
Our Non-Negotiables for Teaching ELs is by Valentina Gonzalez.
English-Language Learners Need More Support During Remote Learning is from Ed Week.
Disney Exits Language School Business in China, Citing Coronavirus is from The NY Times.
Binogi has lots of math and science videos and learning activities in multiple languages. I’m adding it to The Best Multilingual & Bilingual Sites For Math, Social Studies, & Science.
WIDA has multilingual resources to help parents understanding the academic importance of supporting their children in their home language. Go to this page, and then scroll down to “Tips For Parents and Families.” I’m adding it to The Best Resources Explaining Why We Need To Support The Home Language Of ELLs.
ELT Teacher 2 Writer publishes ebooks and paperbacks that develop ELT materials-writing skills. I’m adding it to So, You Want To Write A Book? Here’s The Best Advice…
A Simon’s Cat video is always a good one to show ELL students and have them write and talk about what happened in it:

This looks pretty amazing. I’m adding it to GOOGLE SLIDES GETS AUTOMATED CAPTIONS – HUGE HELP TO ONLINE TEACHERS OF ENGLISH; COULD MAYBE HELP IN REGULAR CLASSROOM so you can compare the two:
PPT Live is quite a bit different than Teams. It supports 67 languages captioned in real-time, you can change slides while presenter moves forward, get feedback forms, live reactions, etc.https://t.co/7jbRmsQoGy
