ELLs and Technology...Google Docs ?

Posted on February 19, 2010 at 7:54pm 2 Comments

I am experimenting with using Google Docs in my ELD classes. I am a novice at this, but want to learn enough to start the year off with it in August. I see it as a way to be kind to the environment as well as prepare my students for college. What I like the most about it is that kids won't lose their papers! If anyone has some suggestions to make this a more efficient learning process, I would be forever indebted to you.

NCLB and ELLs--Success or Dismal Failure?

President Obama is thinking about revising the original NCLB legislation. As a teacher of ELLs, a CTEL trainer, professional development presenter, university adjunct online and onsite, I wonder if it is worth the time and effort. I find more teachers teaching to the test with less time available for classroom instruction. What do you feel about NCLB--keep it or chuck it or some mix of the two?…

Hi Denise,

Thank you for adding me as a colleague and thank you for giving the Nail It Now keyboarding method a "go". I like your style!!!


PS I started a blog in 2007 that was to be about my efforts to market the method to School Districts, but only did 3 posts at, mostly about my philosophy that you MUST give ideas a go (they pop up seemingly out of nowhere and at the oddest of times, so who are we to ignore them or say they won’t work). I am shortly to coninue this blog about marketing my method, especially about how I go breaking through bureaucratic red tape and, if you like, will let you know when I do

You have some great typing activities here. I tried the GHOSTS one and really enjoyed it. I will throw that out there to my students (and offer credit for practicing).
