A collocation is two or more words that often go together. These combinations just sound "right" ... in chunks or blocks rather than as single words.

Using the webcam to develop pronunciation

Using the webcam to develop pronunciation | Resources_4_EFL | Scoop.it

The webcam can be a vital tool in helping to support our students’ pronunciation habits and helping them to ‘see’ how words and expressions are pronounced and what particular pronunciation features they need to be aware of.  So here are a few tips and examples to help you use your webcam to help with your students’ pronunciation.

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers | Resources_4_EFL | Scoop.it
Part of rethinking learning means rethinking the bits and pieces of the learning process–teaching strategies, writing pieces, etc.

Which is what makes the following chart from Kathleen Cushman’s Fires in the Mind compelling. Rather than simply a list of alternatives to homework, it instead contextualizes the need for work at home (or, “homework”). It does this by taking typical classroom situations–the introduction of new material, demonstrating a procedure, etc.), and offering alternatives to traditional homework assignments.
