Business English May 1st, 2018 in Business English In this lesson we will take a look at some of the questions that you may be asked.

We didn’t just add any old tool to this list.

Radio Archive - Freakonomics Freakonomics Discover the hidden side of everything with Stephen J. Dubner, co-author of the Freakonomics books. Each week, Freakonomics Radio tells you things you always thought you knew (but didn’t) and things you never thought you wanted to know (but do) — from the economics of sleep to how to become great at just about anything. Dubner speaks with Nobel laureates and provocateurs, intellectuals and entrepreneurs, and various other underachievers. Numbers - English Game This is a small game for learning numbers in English. Students can click on the numbers to hear them spoken and see them written. The mini-game part allows students to practice listening and reading the numbers. While this game was primarily made for ESL students, young children may also find it useful. The main aim of this game is to practice using numbers in English.

50 Education Technology Tools Every Teacher Should Know About Technology and education are pretty intertwined these days and nearly every teacher has a few favorite tech tools that make doing his or her job and connecting with students a little bit easier and more fun for all involved. Yet as with anything related to technology, new tools are hitting the market constantly and older ones rising to prominence, broadening their scope, or just adding new features that make them better matches for education, which can make it hard to keep up with the newest and most useful tools even for the most tech-savvy teachers. Here, we’ve compiled a list of some of the tech tools, including some that are becoming increasingly popular and widely used, that should be part of any teacher’s tech tool arsenal this year, whether for their own personal use or as educational aids in the classroom.

Tribal Nations & the United States: An Introduction We are excited to announce the updated report is now published as of February, 2020. Questions? Email Storytelling: Present Perfect and Past Tense One of the best ways to practice storytelling in English is by sharing personal experiences. A common way to initiate stories is by posing (asking) a present perfect question starter to someone, such as “Have you ever…” The generic and unspecific nature of the present perfect (you can’t use “time expressions” in pp tenses such as: last year, this month, one day, yesterday etc.) allows a lot of room to ask follow-up questions and share stories. Below you’ll find a list of items I’ve taken from 52 Things to Try Once in Your Life. I’ve taken out a few topics from the deck, changed and added some of my own to make this activity as fun as possible. Please follow the instructions below.:)

10 Free Web 2.0 Tools And How To Easily Use Them In Your Classroom Earlier this week I had the opportunity to attend the first Ozarks Education Research Initiative (OERI) Teacher Technology Conference at Willard High School (MO). The learning sessions I attended were all very good and I am going to share 10 of the FREE tools I learned about below. I will be incorporating them into how I teach and hopefully by using these tools during faculty meetings, PD sessions, and other opportunities as they arise, this will help us all to find ways to incorporate them into the classroom to engage our students even more. This quote from last week has stuck with me ever since it was spoken – “Date the tool. Marry the idea.”

This is a great online assessment that allows the teacher to get specific data on student progress. Teachers can get data such as how long students spent on each question, the questions that many students missed, and their responses. Teachers have the option to create their own assessments or use existing assessments. This assessment also has the option to use standard-based questions which is a neat tool. by kassiesilvers Dec 12
