NIVÅANPASSAT PÅ ENGELSKA – Patricia Diaz Här tänkte jag försöka samla specifika digitala resurser som kan användas i engelskundervisningen i de grupper där man har lite extra behov av att förse eleverna med mer individanpassade övningar på olika nivåer. Den här sidan är alltså ett komplement till den ”stora” länksamlingen för engelska som du hittar i menyraden under ”Länksamlingar” högst upp på den här sidan. Där hittar du också en länksamling över digitala verktyg. Gissar att det är verkligheten för många och att många av er har massor av bra tips att dela med er av. Nyheter från den engelskspråkiga världen presenteras på lätt engelska. Med Readtheory kan man arbeta med läsförståelse på den nivå där man befinner sig.

Readtheory är ett bra komplement till den övriga undervisningen. Newsela – en (snygg!)
