Lesson idea: Kahoot! for word stress

Lesson idea: Kahoot! for word stress | Resources and Ideas for EFL Teachers | Scoop.it
Just a quick idea for using Kahoot! here. I found I was using it for the same purposes - grammar meaning/form checking, gap fills, consolidation at end of lesson, etc. I wanted to branch out. Turns out it works well for reviewing word stress too. Here are a couple of screen shots from our food-related…

Reigniting a Passion for Reading - Edutopia

Reigniting a Passion for Reading - Edutopia | Resources and Ideas for EFL Teachers | Scoop.it
Research shows that reading for pleasure leads to success in school, the workplace, and life. It helps students empathize with their peers and reduces their stress levels.

Unfortunately, as children age, they read less. Parents and teachers report that kids read much less in middle and high school than they did in elementary school. Common Sense Media’s “Children, Teens, and Reading” 2014 research brief reflects this distressing trend:

53 percent of 9-year-olds were daily readers, but only 17 percent of 17-year-olds were.
The proportion of children who “never” or “hardly ever” read tripled from 1984 to 2014. A third of 13-year-olds and 45 percent of 17-year-olds said they read for pleasure one to two times a year, if that.
Many parents recognize that reading is important and want to help reverse this decline. Middle school parents, in particular, are an untapped resource of classroom support. Many of them were active volunteers in their children’s elementary school and would welcome the opportunity to assist again in the classroom.
