Where Children Sleep photographs from around the world Photographer James Mollison travelled around the world to capture children's bedrooms The project, Where Children Sleep is set to highlight children's rights across the globeChildren, and their bedrooms, come from all over the world, from China to the U.S. to Brazil By Sara Malm Published: 10:30 GMT, 3 April 2014 | Updated: 14:43 GMT, 3 April 2014 The difference between east and west, rich and poor becomes stark when looking at how our children sleep at night. Where Children Sleep, a project by photographer James Mollison, is set to highlight children’s rights by contrasting the different living situations for young people across the globe. We meet nine-year-old Dong from China who sleeps underneath a poster of Chairman Mao with his parents and sister; Roathy, eight, from Cambodia who lives on a rubbish tip; Kaya, four, from Tokyo, whose mother makes her at least three new dresses a month; and Indira from Nepal who has worked in the local granite quarry since the age of three.

Bloom's taxonomy and English language learners Thinking Skills and English language learners English language learners should be asked critical thinking questions from all levels of Bloom's Taxonomy. Some of the tasks on the taxonomy are difficult for ELLs because they lack the language and vocabulary to work in English.

Even very young children can work at the Synthesis and Evaluation levels.

Fun, in practice At the end of January, I wrote a post inspired by Volkswagen’s Fun Theory competition. (If you missed the original post, it’s here: The Fun Theory in Language Learning) As often happens, as soon as I had “fun” on the brain, I started seeing posts and information related to this topic all around me in cyberspace! Since fun is always a good thing to have on the brain, I’d like to share a few of the blog posts, discussions, and resources that I’ve enjoyed on this topic. One of ELT Chat’s January 27th Twitter discussions was dedicated to the Role of Humour in the EFL Class. There are a lot of great resource links, and ideas in the Dave Dodgson‘s chat summary.
Freedom of Expression Back to What We Do Overview Your voice matters. You have the right to say what you think, share information and demand a better world. You also have the right to agree or disagree with those in power, and to express these opinions in peaceful protests.
