Polished Paper - MAKING THE MOST OF A DOCUMENT EDITING SERVICE | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
A proofreader is helpful in the final stages of writing, when all that is left is the hunt for minor typographical errors and misspellings. But you need an editor to help you get to that point. When you’ve put your thoughts into words, ask an editor to review your document to help you discover now—instead of later, when it’s too late—what aspects of your work could benefit from scrupulous attention to grammar and style. In reviewing your paper, your editor can help you increase your chances of success by enhancing the content and clarity of your work while also fixing any errors that you’ve overlooked.

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, 2017 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).

88 very British phrases that will confuse anybody who didn't grow up in the UK | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Every language has a few phrases that don't always translate well -- and the British English has some absolute corkers. The team at the Business Insider UK office have compiled a list of the best British slang and idioms that define the weird and wonderful British dialect we grew up with. From our linguistic research, we've confirmed that above all, British people are sarcastic, unsympathetic, and often rather drunk.

Different Approaches To Using Student Blogs And Digital Portfolios | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Don’t let fear or indecision around student blogs freeze you into inaction. Worrying too much about whether you’re ‘doing it right’ can lead to not doing it at all.  At any level, student blogs provide benefits. Embrace them.

Viviana Echeverry's curator insight, November 13, 2017 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.
Elizabeth Hutchinson's curator insight, December 16, 2017 3:12 AM
Blogging is such a useful tool for critical thinking. Every child should have the opportunity to do this.
