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.

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:
If you missed hearing our local public radio station visit my Zoom ELL class, national NPR picked the story up this week:
Civics for All: Empowering English and Multilingual Learners is from iCivics, and has some quotes from me in it. I’m adding it to The Best Websites For Learning About Civic Participation & Citizenship.
ELT Buzz has a wonderful collection of videos for ELLs. You need to join to get their related teaching materials, and I think it’s well worth it. I’m adding it to The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL.
Penguin Parallel Text Series is a book series with…parallel text (each page has the content written in two languages). I’m adding it to THE BEST TOOLS THAT SHOW “PARALLEL TEXT” – SAME SENTENCES TRANSLATED INTO DIFFERENT LANGUAGES SIDE-BY-SIDE.
To Google Translate or Not Google Translate? is from New Jersey TESOL. You might also be interested in THE PROMISE & PERIL OF USING GOOGLE TRANSLATE IN THE ELL CLASSROOM – SHARE YOUR IDEAS.
What I Wish I’d Known about Co-Teaching ELs is by Tan Huynh. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Co-Teaching With ELLs – Please Suggest More.
Here’s a new Simon’s Cat video. They are also good ones to show to ELLs, and then have them talk and write about what they saw:
This would also be a good video to show:
