English--Origins and Roots

When we talk about ‘English’, we often think of it as a single language. But what do the dialects spoken in dozens of countries around the world have in common with each other, or with the writings of Chaucer? Claire Bowern traces the language from the present day back to its ancient roots, showing how English has evolved through generations of speakers.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, November 7, 2:30 PM

English has obviously changed much over the years, but this video (and lesson) also shows some good language family information and traces it back to proto-Indo-European, using the English as the main example.  This other TED-ED video (and lesson) shows how the connotations of English words often times depend on the linguistic root (sweat--Germanic, perspire--Latin).

The Periodic Table of the Figures of Speech: 40 Ways to Improve Your Writing

The Periodic Table of the Figures of Speech: 40 Ways to Improve Your Writing | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
At the root of all good writing lies an understanding of how sentences are built. In kindergarten, we learn the fundamentals of grammar and the basic concepts of how sentences are constructed. For most of our elementary and secondary training in writing, we are taught simply to improve those grammatical and mechanical skills. A good writer, however, understands the complexities and rhetorical effects of how modifying sentence structure (known as sentence "schemes") improves the flow, interest, a

Viviana Echeverry's curator insight, November 13, 11:22 PM
At this time, blogging assists students to become more ICT literate which is a crucial 21st century skill. Through blogging, we’re able to incidentally discuss many ICT skills such as keyboard shortcuts, Creative Commons, researching online and troubleshooting. Creating a class blog requires teamwork and collaboration. Students and teachers learn and share together. A real sense of classroom community can be developed through blogging and establishing a class identity Also, with this we can create an authentic audience, In the traditional classroom, the only audience of student work was the teacher and sometimes classmates and parents. Blogs provide a much larger audience for student work and an opportunity for feedback and self-improvement through commenting. I have found that students really take pride in the work that goes on the blog and want to do their best for their impending audience. In fact, is important to take into a consideration that the use of a blog increased motivation for writing, all students are happy to write and complete aspects of the post topic. Many will add to it in their own time. As well, improved the reading skill. Blogging is a great technique to introduce the technology into the classroom. Additionally, there are so many online tools out there which have more assessment when you can implant them in a blog. Blogging can provide a really different learning stage and while it takes a lot of work.
