Hey everyone, part 2 of my short youtube course on how to teach English without textbooks is available on YouTube. 
Let’s face it, learning a second language is difficult. Most of your students won’t have the opportunity to practice English outside of class and so at the beginning of the lesson they’ll need a little time to get used to speaking again, even if you had a class just a few days ago. It is therefore not appropriate to launch into difficult grammar right from the get-go. Give your students 10 minutes to warm up at the start of class with an easy ...

Hello all! I am an English Language Development teacher in Arizona looking to find classrooms to collaborate with during the course of the fall semester. I have 7th and 8th grade Beginning English Language Learners in all of my classes. I would like to incorporate activities such as mystery calls and just plain video chats where they will be given the opportunity to maximize their English skills. If you are interested please feel free to message me.

In this IPAD tutorial, I show you how to use a simple app called Pic Collage. Pic Collage is free in the App Store. Students can create picture collages to learn a new idea or concept in any subject area. They can also create a pic collage to supplement a writing assignment. #ELLchat   #ESL   #literacy   #Ipads

Does anyone out there use a SMARTBoard with the ELL students? I am looking for ideas of more ways to incorporate it into my pull-out classes, so my students are comfortable enough to use it in their mainstream classes.

New five part course on how to teach ESL without textbooks on Youtube. Part 1: teaching with drills.
With the no-textbook method students learn language through oral drills. But what is a drill? Well, a drill is either a question or statement carefully designed to get the student to orally reproduce a piece of grammar or vocabulary until it becomes so familiar the words come out of their mouths almost without thinking, just like a native speaker.
