Friday 5: Special Mystery Guest: ELL

Hi All –

Ferlazzo has put together tremendous
resources for teachers and students.
teaches Social Studies and English to English Language Learners and
native-English speakers at Luther Burbank High School in Sacramento,
CA.  He was named the Grand Prize Winner of the 2007 International Reading
Association Presidential Award For Reading and Technology.  He has a
website with over 7,000 categorized links accessible to English Language
Learners and younger native English speakers at and
a blog
where he daily shares new content added to the website. A few months ago,
I shared his student examples page
l) with
Friday 5 readers; it’s helpful because I’m always seeking concrete
examples of student technology use. Thanks, Larry, for sharing your expertise
with us!

1) Oxford University Press — Student
Hundreds, and probably thousands, of online
  English language development activities for all levels.
2) Peace Corps English Teaching Manuals
I think the teaching manuals the Peace Corps
  has developed for teaching English as a second language are extraordinarily
  helpful to teachers.
3) Starfall
The best online site to teach reading to
  beginning English Language Learners or young native speakers to read..
4) Dvolver Moviemaker
A great site for students to develop their
  writing skills in a fun and creative way by creating simple movies.
5) Hello World English
A site for beginning English Language Learners
  to learn basic "survival" English.
6) English 180
A very good site for both Beginning and
  Intermediate English Language Learners with graduated lessons.
7) English Interactive
Another excellent site for both Beginning and
  Intermediate English Language Learners with exercises at various levels.
