The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures I’ve compiled several “The Best…” lists that sites where you can learn about the geography, data, languages, and holidays of different countries around the world.

905 FREE Movie Worksheets for Your ESL Classroom Let’s face it: Even the most enthusiastic ESL class sometimes goes through dull periods.

Language level: Pre-intermediate (A2) – Intermediate (B1) Ultimate Cooperative Learning Strategies Guide What is Cooperative Learning? Cooperative learning is a style of teaching that takes the teacher off the state and allows students to learn from one another. Students work together in collaborative groups through different strategies to reach a common goal. This positive interdependence allows students to hold one another accountable for sharing the work load and learning. The group nature of cooperative learning strategies allow many student to student interactions to occur at the same time instead of just one interaction at a time that happens when teachers call on a student.

My Best of series I’ve separated my “The Best…” lists here by topics. A number of the lists, though, can fit into multiple categories, so it still might be useful to scan all of them. The Websites Of The Year page on this blog, on the other hand, has these lists in the chronological order in which they’ve been written. Please note that I continually update and revise all of the lists. The best way to search is using “Control + F” on your keyboard.
