IRREGULAR VERBS LIST -ranked by their use frequency | ESL Lounge

Monica MIRZA's curator insight, February 26, 8:56 AM

Updated on 26 Feb., 2014

- - - - - - - - - - -

I've just thought of asking every student to reorder the verbs in this chart (one page only -otherwise they might get lost), according to what they think is their own personal frequency of use. Then, they should create a sentence for the 5 most/least used ones : first they'd choose a topic, so that they might relate the 10 sentences with each other to create a (very) short story. Hmm... hope I'm being plain enough. Shall possibly refine the exercise instructions later on.

Marcelo Triviño's curator insight, April 27, 7:12 AM

Nice verb list organized by frecuency.

Professional Learning

Professional learning that is relevant, collaborative and future focused can have a highly positive impact on teacher quality. Here you will find resources that develop an understanding of effective professional learning as well as access to free online learning modules.

KCenter SKEMA's curator insight, July 18, 1:56 AM
Beth Dichter's insight:

Australia has published an in-depth professional learning toolkit that has resources that many teachers may find helpful (not just those in Australia). This link shares a range of activities that will enhance your professional learning, including sections on:

* The Essential Guide to Professional Learning which has three sections: Evaluation, Leading Culture and Innovation. Each of these areas has a downloadable resource. The one for Evaluation discusses  the rationale for evaluation, evaluation design, examples of effective data collection method, effective evaluation of professional learning (with a great visual on how the evaluation should measure the impact on students, the individual practitioner and the organization, as well as how it improves the professional learning program, the professional learning outcomes and the sustained impact), and much more.

* One visual from the Essential Guide to Professional Learning: Leading Culture is shown above. The image looks at the many ways adults learn. As with the one on evaluation the resource provides a list of questions one should consider and then explores ways to build holistic learning cultures.

Find some time to explore this resource and share it with others in your building. You might also check out the short video that looks at innovation. You can also find it on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6ZifjWftc8
