Student Centered Learning: Keys to Motivation and Persistence, May 21–June 11, 2018

Deeper Learning Through Questioning, June 11–July 2, 2018

Adding complexity through one-question interview

Hello colleagues, One of my favorite teaching activities over the last few years is one I learned from my friend and colleague Betsy Parrish. Betsy wrote the ESL Pro issue brief and developed the online module, "Meeting the Needs of Today's Adult English Learners." The focus of these materials is on enhancing the complexity of our teaching to support and accelerate learners to reach their important goals. You may recall that Betsy was a guest discussion leader not long ago.

I wanted to share something we recently launched to promote the increased use of free and open educational resources in adult education. 

CrowdED Learning just launched its first Skill Directory—a set of 11 subject-area PDFs, each of which includes a listing of comprehensive, free resources that can be used to support instruction in each subject area. Each PDF can be downloaded, or can be copied over as a Google Doc into Drive so you can add whatever additional resources you might want.

I wanted to get students to think about exponential notation... this isn't really "visual" or "concrete" -- but explores what a little superscript number has to say...  

Short PD ELA training

A K-12 ESL/AEL teacher in Texas  just wrote asking if I could recommend courses/PD training to meet her district's requirement of  24 hours of training each year. She has a lot of offerings in her city but she wants to expand her options a bit. Does anyone here have suggestions that I can send her way? Leecy
