RESOURCES FOR MY COLLEAGUES

As the rest of my colleagues, I am into competencies and trying to get together all that new information which in ESL teaching is quite old. I'm now most of my time into trying to figure out how to manage to really bring together all my students to learn the most they can. The only way I have found is that of cooperative learning, I think it is the only way to catter with diversity from top to bottom, that is why in this part of the blog I am going to try and write about my advances in this area. To start with I will leave a link to a very good blog I have visited about the issue:

                                         http://www.lagestiondelaula.blogspot.com/

 I have just come across with a very interesting website even though is for non-public, i.e., non-        comprehensive classes, it may be helpful:

                                                 www.lessonstream.org

Interesting slideshare about how to create a collaborative project:

This is the best, most comprehensive presentation I have seen to start developing projects in your classroom:

 This is the page of the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the USA, it has an English Teaching     Forum which is also interesting:

                               http://exchanges.state.gov/englishteaching/forum-journal.html

 I have found the BBC page for schools and it is really interesting for us ESL teachers, even though not for our students, they would get lost, but it may be very useful for us, to get resources.

In this page, we can find several materials for our classes, they are done by la Junta de Andalucia to teach English online.

I just came across this website called one stop english which can be very interesting especially for those books that lack contents.

I have watched this video and I am quite into this kind of learning in my classes; that approach to learning languages is also the reason why I believe teachers and students should be together in social media, students get much more exposition to the topic, but only when they choose to do so:
