App #55: Extempore – A Language Teacher’s Most Important Tool! – Teaching with iPad - Steve Lai aka @sly111 | Bilingually Enriched Learners | Scoop.it
As a language educator, it is my goal for my students to be able to speak spontaneously in the target language. Every language teacher knows the challenge of getting all students to speak authentically in class. Here is an excellent tool that all foreign language teachers will love to have. Extempore is a service designed for educators to assess speaking skills as they learn a new language. Extempore has proven to be a very effective and time-saving assessment tool.

Extempore is both an app and a website. Teachers will need to set up an account and input their class(es).

A Big Pile of Fantastic Ideas to Get Kids Outside Making and Doing This Summer - The New York Times

A Big Pile of Fantastic Ideas to Get Kids Outside Making and Doing This Summer - The New York Times | Bilingually Enriched Learners | Scoop.it

"It’s May, time for teachers to revisit their bookshelves and think about summer reading selections. This year, I’m considering a different kind of summer reading for my kids, books that will inspire them to head outside and make, do and create. My younger son, Finn, likes these sorts of projects, and while I can provide him with scrap lumber, nails, a drill and some screws, he and I wanted to find some additional inspiration.

 

Judy Russell, our town librarian, enthusiastically joined in my research and helped me come up with some fantastic resources for inventing, constructing and making."
