One of the basic strategies ESL teachers abroad soon learn, unless they like doing things the hard way all the time, is where the best online teaching resources are (and how to use them).

wanderingsalsero's comment, June 29, 2015 3:00 PM
I think one of the challenges for teachers finding effective tools is 'finding tools that resemble something the students already like to do'. And what are the kids doing now: It's social media. That's why I think this tool that I found a few days ago is so cool and I plan in integrating it into the website I'm setting up. I've got my domain and everything: http://wanderingsalsero.gfriend.com . I was introduced to the owner of the company by a fellow I used to do some writing for and I'll be talking to him tonight to get more information about their planned expansion of the modules on the site but, considering it's all free anyway, even what they've got right now is very valuable.

As I delve more and more into online ESL resources I have yet to see anything that compares to the gFriend concept. Not only does it address the immediate needs a the larger number of students (i.e. free, basic, and easily accessible) but it's just plan fun. The people I've given the site access to all say they love it. They're available here:

COMPTON, Calif.—A large color photograph of an iceberg on display in teacher Angel Chavarin’s fourth-grade classroom at Laurel Street Elementary may not be the typical prop for a language arts lesson. But Chavarin is hoping visuals like this will help his students better understand the concept of inferences, which are, in effect, “the tip of the iceberg.”

Language Magazine » Cutting to the Common Core: Analyzing Informational Text

Language Magazine » Cutting to the Common Core: Analyzing Informational Text | AdLit | Scoop.it

Given the decisive shift toward informational text reading and evidence-based response, school districts from California to New York are working earnestly to integrate more complex informational text assignments into English language arts curricula and other core subject areas. Similarly, disciplinary and grade-level teams are collaborating on writing text-dependent questions that will ensure students do more than a cursory reading. Close analytic reading of an informational text involves returning to the text to conscientiously identify significant arguments and evidence before scrutinizing the author’s support and language use.

 

Assessments requiring objective, text-dependent responses are additionally prompting teachers to refrain from instructional practices that actually discourage students from delving into complex nonfiction selections, such as assigning personal response journals or providing detailed Cornell notes for students to copy and study.

 

While these curricular involvements are well warranted, less-proficient readers and English learners will need far more than an increase in text and task complexity to engage in competent text investigation and response.
