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 2020.
Also, check out A Collection Of My Best Resources On Teaching English Language Learners.
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:
What the American dream looks like for immigrants is from Vox. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Immigration In The United States.
English Learners in Gifted and Talented Programs is a report from OELA.
Is This A Matrix? offers sixty still images from The Matrix movie and invites you to create a GIF story out of some of them. It could be a cool classroom activity.
Technology-Assisted Vocabulary Learning for EFL Learners: A Meta-Analysis is a new research paper.
Students, Immigration Status, and the Right to Public Education is from The U.S. Dept. of Ed.
Quakes in the Landscape of China’s English Language Education System is from Bridge Universe. I’m adding it to A BEGINNING LIST OF RESOURCES FOR SUPPORTING EDUCATORS TEACHING ENGLISH INTERNATIONALLY (OR WANTING TO).
Learning Argument and Persuasion With Quandary is from TESOL.
Been surrounded by awesome #808educate Ts this past few days. Yesterday, we were learning how to design content-language integrated units. Since my colleague @tanyakmau & other T participants are yogis, @TanKHuynh‘s content and lang analogy was the perf visual. @TeachingWStyle pic.twitter.com/CyKws9b31T
