FLOTUS & POTUS | The English language

FLOTUS & POTUS | The English language | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

"There some dispute as to when FLOTUS entered the lexicon..."

Monica Mirza's insight:
"FLOTUS (an acronym for ‘First Lady of the United States’), is a slang or jargon term for the wife of an American president, on the model of POTUS (President of the United States) andSCOTUS (Supreme Court of the United States).
The latter terms originated in the late 19th century, when they were used as telegraphic abbreviations, and were later revived as insider terminology before passing into more general use.
[...] FLOTUS seems to be much newer ; the first evidence thus far found by the OED‘s researchers is from the early 1980s, referring to Nancy Reagan

The Evolving Role of the Teacher

The Evolving Role of the Teacher | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities. These shifts are accelerated by access to technology that has transformed how we learn and interact with one another.

9 Websites to Find Comics for Teaching and Learning 

9 Websites to Find Comics for Teaching and Learning  | EFL-ESL, ELT, Education | Language - Learning - Teaching - Educating | Scoop.it
