I am trying to answer my research question " In what ways can ELL learners be successful in the mainstream classroom through the support of reading and online programs?"
Does anyone here on this website have experience working with ELL and Reading Instruction such as online reading tools or other reading programs which have helped ELL language skills and comprehension skills?

Today in class, I guided students through the steps of creating their own introductory wikipage for my Language Arts class. On this page, they included a welcome greeting using a “cool” text generator, uploaded a favorite picture using Morguefile.com, and added a favorite quote from a quotation site. These pages will be linked from a Student Pages site on our class wiki, and students will be responsible for maintaining them throughout… Continue

Please help me. I want to know!!! How old is too old to be a native English teacher in Thailand? This is really a joke in itself but I'm not laughing. I've actually wanted to start a blog on this subject a while back but had no time to do so until now. Also my motivation is at its peak for this topic because I am a bit disgusted at the age of some retirees posting their resumes and thinking someone wants them to work as a teacher.

Recently, I decided to make a VoiceThread for use in my 20th C. American Literature class. I started exploring different teaching strategies for my students when I realized that they were not very excited to read and respond in the traditional way. A VoiceThread is a wonderful tool which enables you, the instructor, to upload your media file (like a slide presentation), add your voice to it, and then allows the students to add their comments as well. The entire VT then can be seen by either… Continue

I wrote a blog post on how to use the Books feature on Google to find quotes when writing a research paper. I imagined a freshman English class as my target audience. Check out my post at http://cassinespor.blogspot.com/2010/05/how-to-find-quotes-using-google-books.html
If there are any changes or additions you think that I should make, please let me know, either via Classroom2.0 or my blog… Continue

9 Paid Resources, and 6 Free Ones.
As promised in last week’s post, “15 online Math tutoring and help options“, this week I am following up with online resources for those seeking help with the subject of English.
Many of the paid options below were also included in last week’s post, since quite a few of them are not just specific to Math, but we have replaced a couple of these with new resources. The free options cited here are all new, and several are useful for… Continue

Four years ago, a tall but rather skinny member of my robotics team stepped into the playing arena to compete in the finals of the 2nd National Robotics Olympiad which was held at the Alabang Town Center. It took the boy a couple of hours to assemble his lego robot. His robot will compete in the finals of a maze event.
And now it’s crunch time! It was a tense moment for all of us. It was the first time for us to join in the Robotics Olympiad. We didn’t even expect to reach the finals… Continue

I've been researching the Internet and found many tools that are useful. Still there's the situation at my school where we have classrooms made for 26-30 pupils and they're only equipped with three computers. I need not say that this poses problems.
I've chosen this place to post my blog on since it feels right for me.
Currently I work with teenagers 13-16 year-olds teaching English and French and trying to incorporate the latest ICT in my… Continue
