Oxford City Council praised for introducing gender neutral 'MX' title on paperwork One of the country’s biggest councils has been praised for introducing gender neutral titles on forms. Oxford City Council told The Independent it has approved plans to include ‘Mx’ as an option on paperwork, alongside traditional terms such as Miss, Ms, Mrs and Mr. The change was made following recommendations from the council’s Equality and Diversity Group as a means of making the council more trans-inclusive; including non-binary people who can prefer the ‘Mx’ title as it does not denote a gender.

Amazing Race party On this year’s trip to Sanibel, we needed a fun party theme for Jo’s Aunt Sue, whose birthday happened to be that week. She is a huge fan of The Amazing Race, so we thought hosting our own version would be a great way to celebrate her birthday. We had so much fun creating props for this event. From clues to signs to envelopes, our full collection of Amazing Race printables (available on Etsy) has it all! We’ve also since come up with techniques for making a clue box, fanny packs, and a pit stop mat.

"ESL English Listening and Reading Audiobooks" Arch of Triumph by Erich Maria Remarque It is 1939. Despite a law banning him from performing surgery, Ravic —a German doctor and refugee living in Paris— has been treating some of the city’s most elite citizens. Forbidden to return to his own country, and dodging the everyday dangers of jail and deportation, Ravic manages to hang on —all the while searching for the Nazi who tortured him back in Germany.

Game mechanics can be applied outside the immersive environments of games themselves, to create engaging experiences as well as assign rewards and recognition.

The Best Sites To Help Teach About 9/11 You might want to check-out my New York Times post that includes 9/11 teaching ideas and a student interactive quiz for English Language Learners. 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).
