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.
In addition, look for our new book on teaching ELLs, which was published in the Spring of 2018 and learn about our next book. PLUS, we’ve just submitted the manuscript for the second edition of The ESL/ELL Teacher’s Survival Guide! That book will be out in early 2022.
Here are this week’s choices:
Innovate ELT 2021 – day two is from Sandy Millin. If you scroll down, there’s a lot of good information about online dictionaries for ELLs. I’m adding it to The Best Reference Websites For English Language Learners.
From English Language Learners to Teachers: Busting the Native-Speakerism Bias is from Bridge Universe.
The latest issue of my favorite ELL journal, Humanising Language Teaching, is now freely available online.
Why thousands of Afghans are still on US military bases is from Vox. You might also be interested in A COLLECTION OF THE BEST ADVICE TO TEACHERS ABOUT SUPPORTING AFGHAN REFUGEE STUDENTS.
California still lags in helping long-term English learners is from Ed Source. I’m adding it to The Best Resources On Supporting Long-Term English Language Learners.
A list of lists is from Evidence Based EFL. I’m adding it to The Best Ways To Keep-Up With Current ELL/ESL/EFL News & Research and to The “Best” Lists Of Recommendations About What “Effective” Teachers Do.
