Hittin’ the Books

21 Feb

Upon a recent visit to our dear director and friend Ricardo, I was told that the blog had a lot of potential but should present more subject matter concerning the classroom directly. I think R has got a very valid point, and as such I’ve started compiling a list of online resources to help vosotros come up with English activities.

http://www.usingenglish.com/handouts/ – This página de web has
brazilians of worksheets that cover all the verb tenses in printable
handouts that mostly seem to be in exam format. This would be ideal if
you wanted to pull a pop quiz on your youngsters, or simply just
sequence and review afore-taught subject matter.

http://jeffreyhill.typepad.com/english/ – The English Blog provides us with a wide range of activities that tend to be more politically and
culturally geared. Basically it presents some current events
controversy, gives some feedback and highlights key terms and vocabulary. It’s something I turn to frequently when I hit writer’s block preparing for my adult classes.

http://www.esltower.com/grammarteachers.html – ESL Tower is fantastic if you’re looking for things like printable exercises. There’s a horde of visual games that break down relatively advanced themes like modal expressions and partitives.

http://www.btinternet.com/~ted.power/lev03.html – This page has
examples of student assignments and descriptions of various verb
tenses. From what I’ve seen a lot of these are reading and
interpretation exercises that incorporate different conjugations to
analyze brief narrations.

http://www.hltmag.co.uk/jan03/less.htm – Some great project ideas that are completely outlined concerning age, timing, and execution. Good for little to middle-school-aged rascals.

http://www.englishclub.com/ – I posted this one a couple of months
ago, but thought I’d make with the reiteration. My favorite aspect of
Englishclub.com is the talking point worksheets. For the older, more
advanced students these pages show how to take a topic and exhaust
every aspect of it through interrogatives.
