Alice Mercer, Reflections on Teaching, a computer lab teacher at an elementary school in Sacramento, CA. just posted the Twenty-First Edition of the ESL/EFL/ELD Blog Carnival, and it’s full of amazing resources for ESL/EFL/ELD teachers.
It contains contributions from many great educators, as well as reflective commentary about each by Alice Mercer. Very, very nice. And according to Larry Ferlazzo, there is more to come in April, May and Sept.
“David Deubelbeiss at EFL Classroom 2.0 will be hosting the April 1st edition. Posts should be related to teaching or learning English, including examples of student work, are welcome. You can contribute a post to it by using this easy submission form.
You can see all the previous editions of the ESL/EFL/ELL Blog Carnival here.”
A nice base of lessons and resources for you to deploy in your classroom…
