Oxford Owl is a collection of free children’s ebooks for learners ages 3-11. Each ebook has accompanying audio so that learners can choose to read along, or read independently. The books also have activities focusing on reading comprehension and story recall. There are several options for filtering the ebooks including by...
- age,
- book type, and
- by series.
As well as the eBooks visitors will find...
- activities and recommendations for each age group,
- games to print and play, and
- online games with characters from the books and site.
NOTE: Oxford Owl is flash-based. Not ideal at all for a learning environment full of iPads. Luckily, there are solutions. There are several Flash Browsers that you can download for the iPad to view flash content. My current preference is Photon.

Academic Word List: vocabulary exercises for EFL/ESL learners

Academic Word List: vocabulary exercises for EFL/ESL learners | college and career ready | Scoop.it
Vocabulary Exercises for the AWL

 

This site now contains 285 gap-fill exercises to review and recycle the general word families contained within the AWL. These exercises can be found on each Sublist page. Gap-fill exercises are an excellent way to recycle vocabulary through different contexts and can be used to broaden the student's understanding of the range of meaning of vocabulary. The online format of the exercises allows students to get immediate feedback on their answers. Students can work throughfive different exercises for each word family in the AWL. Many of these exercises include different derivations (parts of speech) for the given word. Students are encouraged to complete the exercises for a given level before proceeding to the next level.

John Dalziel's curator insight, July 7, 2013 10:41 AM

I've posted in the past about BP Educational Services who provide a large range of curriculum-linked teaching resources targeting primary and secondary schools.
Ideal for practitioners is such learning providers and/or those on Initial Teacher Training Courses.
I try to revisit such website and, on one such visit, found the site has recently been redesigned and features hundreds of...
- lesson plans,
- videos and
- online activities,
...most of which are related to Science, Design & Technology and Geography.
Registration is required to access the resources, but this is free.

Advanced Composition for Non-Native Speakers of English

Advanced Composition for Non-Native Speakers of English | college and career ready | Scoop.it

"This site provides instructions for writing essays in English for a US academic audience. This site also contains academic essays by ESL and EFL students writing in English for university level classes."

 

Shona Whyte:

Erlyn Baack, ESL writing instructor, ITESM, Quertaro Campus (Mexico) maintains the site http://eslbee.com on advanced composition for non-native speakers of English: advice, examples and exercises for academic writing for intermediate learners and beyond.

 

Here's a review by Jennifer Banton (University of Quebec, Montreal)

"Advanced Composition is a clean looking unified site. It is well planned and easy to follow. There is no advertising to clutter the pages, and all images are directly related to the sites' content and purpose. The audience is specified, and the stated goals are achieved. The author takes great care to cite secondary information, and he includes useful links to related sites. All of this sets a very much appreciated formal and academic tone. In comparison to other Online Writing Labs, Advanced Composition stands out as one of the few which offers higher order writing instruction, including university level sample writing."
