I’m going to have a number of my Beginning ELL students return to my class this year (which will be a combination Beginner/Intermediate one).

As I did in the spring, I’m going to push heavily for a very student-driven curriculum.

Nevertheless, we didn’t get to our animals unit last year, and I think at some point students will want to do it.

Of course, virtual tours of zoos, particularly their live web cams, will be a great addition to that unit, so I thought I’d prepare a collection in advance.
