Resources for ELT
I have started some pages for people who would like to collaborate on developing resources in English Language Teaching for non-native speakers (EFL/ESL/ESOL,ELF). Feel free to contribute with your expertise and content.
I was thinking in contributing with a unit on how to describe visual documents, the rationale behind it, the lexical and syntactic tools needed and how this can evolve onto visual/media and critical literacy. It will be based on Bloom's taxonomy and critical literacy methods and approach. I will need CC pictures, ads and other visual docs which are not copyright. I need to structure the different parts hierarchically so it makes sense. I will work on this in my sandbox so as not to crowd this space.
I'm starting classes next week so I thought I could prepare a handout with first class activities. I also opened a new page to start taking notes.
Of course anyone willing to collaborate, will be welcomed.
Great idea to start this page, I was a bit lost.
Hi Gabriella, As soon as you have the title of your resource and a page, indicate it here so we can link it from the ELT_Resource page. I am also working on mine, which is a unit on resources and activities for visual literacy.
Here is my activity,Classroom Web.
Not finished yet. I do need some feedback.
Bee, are you planning to include some activities? g
Yes, Gabriela. There is already a link to one activity - Description and Internet Skills which I am planning to include here as an example. If you have any others, please direct me to them.
Hello Bee and Gabriela,
I was teaching last week in a Japanese elementary and have a few examples. I put it in my talk.
Hi Bee, Great to see you here. I am interested in contributing to English language teachers' professional development. My expertise is blended learning via Moodle, wikis, nings, and WebQuests using audio and video applications. Where do I start?
Warm wishes, Nellie Deutsch
oops..sorry Nellie. I hadn't seen your message until now. I think the best way to start is by checking who is doing anything in teacher professional develop, contact them and then write a plan of what you want to contribute with and how. Bee
