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:
The Comedy Wildlife Awards always provide images students could write and talk about. I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons.
Return to Simplicity in the Language Classroom is from Kamila of Prague.
Express Yourself in English has a lot of good classroom plans.
How are school districts easing transitions for Afghan students? is from K-Dive. I’m adding it to A COLLECTION OF THE BEST ADVICE TO TEACHERS ABOUT SUPPORTING AFGHAN REFUGEE STUDENTS.
