We are watching the movie El Norte in my Spanish 4 class, and discussing a number of issues related to the movie.  We do that in the target language.  They will have to write a composition over the week end.  What movies do you use in the most advances French and Spanish classes?

It's great to have a sister school in France with whom we skype and exchange students.

I am wondering how many ELL teachers and administrators are following this group.  I find myself with a new responsibility at my school - training teachers to assess English Language Learners by using the Massachusetts MELA-O instrument.  My school district serves fewer than 20 ELLs district-wide this year.  I hope that those of us with such a low incidence of ELLs in our districts can form a small network to share resources and advice.  I have been administering the Mass MEPA for six or seven years now, but using the MELA-O will be new for me.   To further this sharing, I have established the hashtag #MassELL on Twitter.  If there are any Massachusetts ELL professionals out there who are interested, maybe we could start using this hashtag and start building our network.  If this is not the best match for a group, maybe someone would be interested in establishing a group dedicated to ELL.

Thanks.

-Kevin

Hola. I am an IBMYP (International Baccalaureate for the Middle Years) teacher. I teach an Introduction to Spanish to ten 6th-grade classes at two schools. I am always open to new ways to reach my 6th-graders and love collaborating and sharing with other educators.

Hola. Am interested in how we assess student speaking on a regular basis and improve that speaking through non-technology and technology ways. Like web 2.0 tools.

I teach French in Kentucky. I use NING with my students and parents. I am slowly abandonning my textbooks in favor of standard based performance events. I am working on National Board Certification.

Konichiwa! I teach English in Japan. I'm interested in learning more about language teaching in other countries and am looking forward to sharing useful information with everyone.

Use these two words and become a better student

Words are powerful.And you do not only know that since your last exam. A single word can change everything: it can make you the victor, save relationships, calm you down or pull you into the abyss.Finding the right words is an art that not everyone masters. Some use their words inflationary and put one empty phrase to the next. Others put every word on the gold scale and interpret everything possible into what is said.But your choice of words not only affects how other people perceive you. Your…See More

Online Education: Can It Really Replace Learning in Classrooms?

In the modern world education is a part of everyone's life. Even if someone did not graduate from college or finish school, they still learn new skills or just something they are interested in. That can likewise be called education, or, even a more appropriate term is self-education. This concept is closely related to…See More
