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.

A social-belonging intervention improves STEM outcomes for ESL students is from Eureka Alert. I’m adding it to THE BEST RESOURCES FOR LEARNING HOW TO PROMOTE A SENSE OF “BELONGING” AT SCHOOL.
40 More Intriguing Photos to Make Students Think is from The NY Times Learning Network. I’m adding it to the same list.

Hey! Thanks 😀 I’m glad we’re connected!
About the term… I see it being used as preference.
I like the term Latinx because is an inclusive term (not gender specific) vs. Latino/Latina
Besides, if we’re referring to countries in Central/South America, then we’re Latinx 🤷🏽♀️ pic.twitter.com/36yhffhQ0v
