Evaluating information is a critical life skill. Without sufficient practice, our students will not internalize this skill, and will not remember it from lesson to lesson. Talk to you librarian today about integrating the process of evaluating information into your research projects and lesson plans today!

The 15 Punctuation Marks in Order of Difficulty - Infographic

The 15 Punctuation Marks in Order of Difficulty - Infographic | ESL Reading and Writing | Scoop.it
Ever wonder why you can't figure out when and where to stick a comma? It's probably because commas, by far, have more rules and applications than any other punctuation mark. But why do so many people use the semicolon incorrectly? Comparatively, it should be one of the easiest punctuation marks to master. And why doesn't anybody seem to use the en dash?

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area - TeachThought | ESL Reading and Writing | Scoop.it

"Reading is reading. By understanding that letters make sounds, we can blend those sounds together to make whole sounds that symbolize meaning we can all exchange with one another.

 

Without getting too Platonic about it all, reading doesn’t change simply because you’re reading a text from another content area. Only sometimes it does.'
