The Christmas table

The Christmas table | eflclassroom | Scoop.it

Described by John Ayto as ‘steaming fragrant black cannonballs’ in his newly published The Diner’s Dictionary, it is not hard to see why Christmas pudding is a luxury afforded only once a year. The rich combination of suet, raisins, currants, spices, eggs, and brandy often leaves diners in a food-induced stupor at the end of their Christmas meal. Christmas pudding remains an important part of the British Christmas table, and yet it was not always eaten just at Christmas.

Five tools to help evaluate sources in a world of fake news - Daily Genius

Five tools to help evaluate sources in a world of fake news - Daily Genius | eflclassroom | Scoop.it

"Whether you call it “fake news”, “misinformation” or the more innocuous “spin,” and whether you see this as an entirely new problem or the continuation of an already existing problem (think “War of the Worlds,” “Yellow Journalism” and “Dewey Defeats Truman”), one thing is clear: there is a powerful and pressing need to prepare our …"

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, January 21, 9:30 AM
If a picture is worth 1,000 words, and the average length of an English word is 5 letters, it would take you 35.71 Tweets to tell the same story you could with one shared image on social media. So why wouldn’t you just include an image?

Teaching & Learning Resources to Remember the Life of MLK

Teaching & Learning Resources to Remember the Life of MLK | eflclassroom | Scoop.it
“Never, never be afraid to do what’s right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society’s punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.” This quote epitomizes why I have always admired Martin Luther King, Jr. 

As a pastor, activist, humanitarian and leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement, he not only advocated for the equal treatment of our fellow man, but he also supported the fair and humane treatment of animals—a personal passion of mine as a rescuer, adopter, foster and sponsor of shelter and puppy mill dogs.

Central to that project, alongside the very important element of discussion, was a handout I created for…
