The Best Sites To Help Teach About 9/11

With the anniversary of the attack on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon coming-up in less than a month, I thought I would put together a “The Best…” list to highlight some relevant accessible sites for English Language Learners. Teachers of very young students probably want to review some of the video clips to determine if they would be too disturbing to watch. There are certainly plenty of resources around that cover many of the country and worldwide effects of the attack in the years since then (and I’ll probably be compiling a list of them soon). This list, though, is focused on sites that talk about the day itself. I do, however, include one or two resources that provide some historical perspective. Resources. Learn English Through Pictures.

32 Apps Dyslexic Students Will Love for Everyday Learning

For students with dyslexia, work that requires reading and writing can be daunting, and it often saps the enjoyment out of school. Fortunately, more and more families and schools are discovering assistive technology (AT) and the ability it has to lessen stress and give children a greater sense of academic independence. While many schools have folded technology into the classroom, students are also increasingly using their own smartphones and tablets. The built-in accessibility features (e.g., text-to-speech, dictation, word prediction) of mobile operating systems have made those devices extremely useful for dyslexic students, and the variety of AT-related apps flooding Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store raise the level of assistance to an even higher level.

A website created last week is providing a fascinating look into what some forms of dyslexia look like, and the results are a must-see.

She can read, but it takes a lot of concentration, and the letters seems to 'jump around,'" the site’s introduction reads.

The Seven Best Short Animated Films for the Language Classroom - Kieran Donaghy

Traditionally animated films have been associated with children, however, nowadays they are designed to appeal to everyone. With the increased ease of creating animations, there has been a huge rise in the number of animated films being produced, and the vast majority of these are short animations. Many of these short animated films can be exploited in the language classroom as they are short enough to be used in a single session, offer a complete narrative in a short space of time, have a unique capacity of grabbing and holding students’ attention, and deal with contemporary subjects and issues, such as bullying, racism, sexism, homelessness, and human rights, which are relevant to students’ lives.

Here are my seven favourite animated short films for the language classroom. Paperman. The Seven Best Silent Short Films for Language Teaching - Kieran Donaghy. As many short films are artistic, they have limited appeal in the commercial marketplace and are funded from diverse sources. To make them easier to sell worldwide, they often contain little or no dialogue, which makes comprehension much easier. As a result, they offer intensely ‘filmic’ experiences, using images and movement, sequence and duration, sound and music to tell their stories. These silent films are perfect for the language classroom as they can be used with any level – the teacher just needs to adapt the difficulty of the task to match the level of the students.

Why bring UK culture to the teen classroom? We can introduce UK culture into the English classroom to help our students improve their English and at the same time learn about values and ways of doing things which may be different to theirs. Learning about life and culture in the UK can be very motivating as it brings the language alive for learners and creates a link between language and real life. See if you agree with these comments from teachers on teaching UK culture to their teenage learners: ‘We need to avoid reinforcing erroneous British stereotypes to our teenagers.
