Beth, when you say 'new beginners tool' what do you mean? I use diigo as it gives me so many capacities, like highlight and notes and very good ways for sharing. For good beginner tool you mean for those new to curation and/or social bookmarking?

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, January 20, 2013 4:58 AM

Some interesting points and useful tips here for teachers regarding recycling language and revisiting texts. Thornbury makes the observation that often in  texts books each unit covers a different topic which means that new language is being introduced and language from previous units is not being repeated or reviewed. This is where we as teachers can introduce other resouces that help bind all the topics and also use five minute activites to recapitulate on language that has already been introduced in order to revive it.
