Nik Peachy has published online the latest edition of the blog carnival for teaching English-language learners. One of the sites he selected that relates the most to the education of ELLs in primary and secondary schools in the United States (the subject of this blog) is a post, “The Best Sites for K-12 Intermediate English-Language Learners,” by Larry Ferlazzo, who founded this particular carnival. Lindsay Clandfield also has an interesting post, “Six computer games to use in an English-language classroom.”
Peachy includes in his edition of the language-learning carnival criteria for what makes for a good blog post: informative, complete, noncommercial, appropriate to the medium, transferable (his word for applicable).
Readers, what’s your criteria for a blog post about ELLs that’s worth your time? I’m open to suggestions.
