Tan Huynh’s resource center is amazing! Check it out here: www.EmpoweringELLs.com
You’ll be blown away by his articles. He not only shares great ideas about teaching ELLs, he shares his experiences with students and his infographics model how we should all be teaching.
In the podcast, Tan and I battle who is interviewing whom! But we love it because you get a peek into how people on opposite sides of the globe can collaborate to produce a book, a virtual conference or a podcast like this. Tan is teaching EAL (English as an additional language) in Laos.
Some of the links we mention are below:

Using Tech with ELLs training contact Kathy Ballenger of Seidlitz Education
We talk about how the Roving Paragraph Frames strategy…
- scaffolds with frames
- supports writing in all content areas
- honors the ELL & their voice
- allows them to use social & academic language
- Supports all language levels and everyone is writing & reflecting
Maybe use this strategy after teaching with Kahoot! Here is a Blind Kahoot on Mitosis by Stephanie Castle. That Kahoot is a great example of how to teach with Kahoot vs. just reviewing with it! More on Kahoot for ESL here.
