The Alot is Better Than You at Everything As a grammatically conscientious person who frequents internet forums and YouTube, I have found it necessary to develop a few coping mechanisms. When someone types out "u" instead of "you," instead of getting mad, I imagine them having only one finger on each hand and then their actions seem reasonable. If I only had one finger on each hand, I'd leave out unnecessary letters too! If I come across a person who seems to completely ignore the existence of apostrophes and capital letters and types things like "im an eagle and im typing with my talons, so dont make fun of me cuz this is hard," I like to imagine that they actually are an eagle typing with their talons.

365 things to make you go "Hmmm..." What is 365 Things? '365 Things' is a thinking skills resource. Simply put, it's one big question for every day in the year. Its official aim as a thinking skills resource is to help your pupils deepen their understanding and introduce them to different ways of thinking, but if it gets your class talking hard about the answer, that's good enough for us. We've had both secondary and primary schools using the resource, but our main support comes from KS2 classes.

20 Common Grammar Mistakes That (Almost) Everyone Gets Wrong I’ve edited a monthly magazine for more than six years, and it’s a job that’s come with more frustration than reward. If there’s one thing I am grateful for — and it sure isn’t the pay — it’s that my work has allowed endless time to hone my craft to Louis Skolnick levels of grammar geekery. As someone who slings red ink for a living, let me tell you: grammar is an ultra-micro component in the larger picture; it lies somewhere in the final steps of the editing trail; and as such it’s an overrated quasi-irrelevancy in the creative process, perpetuated into importance primarily by bitter nerds who accumulate tweed jackets and crippling inferiority complexes. But experience has also taught me that readers, for better or worse, will approach your work with a jaundiced eye and an itch to judge.

My Teacher Is a Monster: A Sweet Modern Fable About Seeing Through the Othern... by Maria Popova A gentle illustrated reminder that we can’t love what we don’t know. “Love,” wrote Leo Tolstoy in his poignant letters to Gandhi on why we hurt one another, “represents the highest and indeed the only law of life, as every man knows and feels in the depths of his heart (and as we see most clearly in children)…” Tolstoy believed that if only we managed to see through our superficial differences and our fear of the other’s otherness, we’d recognize instantly the universe’s basic “law of love” — something to which we are born attuned, only to forget as we enter adulthood. Kids, of course, can often be especially cruel in their inability to accept otherness — but that’s why it’s especially enchanting to witness, let alone spark, the precise moment in which a child lets go of some learned bias and sees in another person his or her intrinsic goodness, a return to innocence and Tolstoy’s “law of love.” Suddenly, the leisurely environment strips them of their weekday roles.

Simple English ~ Nicola Prentis Things I’ve made or used without much adaptation to weave a conversation around. They can take longer than a one hour class. I take notes while the students are speaking to remind them of pronunciation errors, grammar points or vocab they’ve needed. This gets photocopied and given to the student, going over what has been noted either as delayed or on the spot feedback. This BBC graphic about predictions for the next 150 years is great. I wasn’t able to print it so just picked groups of three or four predictions in similar time bands, read then out and got the students to talk about them and decide which were more likely.superlative speaking.

81 Cantonese proverbs explained in one beautiful poster Graphic designer and cartoonist 阿塗(Ah To) was concerned about the survival of the Cantonese language in Canton and Hong Kong, so he published a comic called ”The Great Canton and Hong Kong Proverbs” in order to propagate Cantonese culture. The cartoon contains illustrations of 81 Cantonese proverbs all in one poster, and an author on the Blog of Cantonese Resources recently set to explaining the literal and figurative meanings behind each image. Reminiscent of the Dutch artist Pieter Bruegel's oil painting “Netherlandish Proverbs,” which illustrated Dutch proverbs and culture in the 1500's, Ah To's poster imitates the same idea. Here are the explanations of each scene in the painting: See how one of the most powerful women in history claimed her throne in Isabel.
