I posted “100+ Reasons to Read Today” a few months ago and, as things go, I sort of forgot about it. Then, a freshman English teacher tweeted me @tysonkimberly and suggested the idea of using “100+ Reasons to Read Today” with his students to create a blackout poem. I encouraged him to try it. And …

Paige durand's curator insight, March 13, 8:39 AM

This is really interesting for someone who is transitioning from a native speaker to speaking, reading and writing English.  There are 7 different ways to improve their English and things people who already speak English may take for granted. One of the tips is as easy to just watch television and see how the people interact. There are other simple methods like thinking in English and trying to speak in only English. I think the problem may be about this paper is that its trying to convert the native speakers into only speaking English. That's what i got from it since it was very repetitive about only doing things in English.

Christopher Chao's curator insight, March 13, 11:26 AM

Social media is very key to helping people learn how to have better english. What is this sentence I just read in the article. If anything social media and the internet is what makes the english language go down in flames and burn. Also I do wish our phones had a correct english term because I just text out my thoughts now but I dont check how bad it actually was.

Sharena Hamilton's curator insight, April 3, 11:28 AM

Independent reading sometimes gets a bad rap. Not enough time. Not enough books. Not enough accountability. Not enough evidence. You get the picture. Though not always popular among educators, I believe that providing students access to books to support independent reading is one of the most important things we can do in classrooms and schools. …
