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 2021.
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. 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:
Unaccompanied Migrant Teens Have Unique and Profound Needs. One New Orleans Teacher Created a Special School to Help Them is from The 74.
Remote Teaching Tips is a publication from The British Council. I’m adding it to THE BEST ADVICE ON TEACHING K-12 ONLINE (IF WE HAVE TO BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS) – PLEASE MAKE MORE SUGGESTIONS!
Keeping The Promise is a website created by the U.S. Department of Education to support new Afghan refugee students. I’m adding it to A COLLECTION OF THE BEST ADVICE TO TEACHERS ABOUT SUPPORTING AFGHAN REFUGEE STUDENTS.
Determining How Much Background Knowledge to Provide for ELLs is from Colorin Colorado. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Learning About The Importance Of Prior Knowledge (& How To Activate It).

This is great, and I’m very happy they received this kind of reception. It would be nice if ALL refugee students received this kind of welcome at all schools https://t.co/ogDcg3aZKa
