M. Van Amelsvoort's curator insight, January 20, 2013 8:45 PM

A great site with lots of resources for teaching reading. Yes, it is for L1 (US) teaching and learning, but this site has hundrds (!) of great lesson plans (including the actual reading text and teaching plan and worksheets) for fiction and non-fiction that could be used in any context where reading is taught. Registration required for downloading. The site also has great resources for learning how to teach reading more effectively.

Vocabulary builing tool with a web clipper that can be added to a browser for quick additions to a tagged phrasebook - looks like a very interesting use of browser technology that promotes learner autonomy

Amadeu Marin's curator insight, June 7, 2014 8:23 AM

Excellent idea! A fantastic tool to build up a collection of useful chunks or phrases around topics, situations, etc.

 

LEARNING TIP:

Phraseum provides what they call a 'clipping button' that you

drag onto your browser bookmark bar. Then, while you're reading online, you can highlight a piece of text (collocations, chunks, idioms, etc.) you want to clip, then hit the Phraseum clipping button to save and categorize the phrase into your account to learn or use later.

 

You can also share the phrases and phrasebooks you create and subscribe to other people's.

Juan Fernández's curator insight, August 1, 2014 3:29 PM
Nik Peachey's insight:

This is a really fantastic tool for the collaborative learning of phrases and collocations. Every language learner should be using this.
