Eight 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 book on teaching ELLs, which was published in the Spring of 2018 and learn about our new book.

Here are this week’s choices:

The Sherlock Center on Disabilities has an interesting collection of online books radically modified for accessibility.

Graded Language and Why English Teachers Should Use It is from My Life Teaching in a Korean University. I’m adding it to The Best Advice To Content Teachers About Supporting English Language Learners.

The Have Fun With English blog has a post about a nice activity called The Compass. I’m adding it to The Best Resources For Planning The First Day Of School.

Is Federal Funding for Immigrant Students Falling Short? is from Ed Week.

Rewordify is an amazing tool and has been on The Best Places To Get The “Same” Text Written For Different “Levels” for years.  However, I recently learned from Blog de Cristina that it also now allows you to automatically create quizzes.  So, I’m also adding it to THE “BEST” TOOLS FOR AUTOMATICALLY TURNING TEXTS & VIDEOS INTO INTERACTIVE LANGUAGE LEARNING TOOLS.

I’m adding this next tweet to The Best Resources For Learning About Balanced Literacy & The “Reading Wars”:

ESL Writing Wizard is a great resource for handwriting instructional resources.  I’ve used its materials with my high school students.
