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.

Teaching ELLs Online: How to Develop Students’ Language Skills is By Beth Skelton, Lydia Breiseth.
77 festivals and celebrations PDFs is from TEFLtastic. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Learning About Multiple Holidays & Anniversaries.

This is educator synergy at its best! I read @Larryferlazzo 's ELL Teachers Toolbox, got inspired, blogged about it, and shared the post in an ESL Ts' FB group. Alyona Greene saw it, added her bit, and did a YouTube video about it! https://t.co/6KopEfNiAk
