  1. Many international schools require certifications. Do you have any? One good place is look for jobs is: Dave's ESL Cafe.
  2. Welcome, where are you looking to go?
  3. Use this template to create a cool Hyperdoc Game Board for any unit of study. Make a copy for yourself and you can replace the images to go with your theme. https://docs.google.com/document/d/11oQUPwpVLZJtqZowSi8zF-Rda1NdPa9e_vKVdAgbH30/edit?usp=sharing
  4. Wielding the Power of Poems - share yourself and teach with love is a Padlet created by Shanna Schwartz. Shanna is an amazing educator and one of the members of the Lucy Calkins Reading and Writing Workshop community. During these trying times, many teachers are turning to teaching poetry units. Shanna gives teachers some amazing resources. https://padlet.com/shanna21/wieldingpoetry
  5. Please find a good digital reading log attached. During these trying times, it is important to keep our students reading vast quantities of books. This reading log lets them keep track of the books they are reading. Make a copy of it, if you use Google Classroom, share it with them by making an individual copy for each student and then let them fill it the top goal number and then start logging. It is that easy. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1yDthT6UgMMikfmTc0rU4Y9WbgXj9KQd8LUU9g43MWGA/edit?usp=sharing
  6. A HyperDoc is a digital document—such as a Google Doc—where all components of a learning cycle have been pulled together into one central hub. https://www.cultofpedagogy.com/hyperdocs/ The Cult of Pedagogy gives a great overview of Hyperdocs and how to use them in your classroom. I love the book The HyperDoc Handbook: Digital Lesson Design Using Google Apps https://www.amazon.com/HyperDoc-Handbook-Digital-Lesson-Design/dp/1733646892 Here is the best Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/HyperDocs/
  7. This is a great Hyperdoc created by Kendra Tyler. The Learning Outcomes for students are to: 1. Understand Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird through the citing of textual evidence and drawing inferences. 2. Understand and determine how time, era, and author’s background impacts authors and readers. 3. Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze in detail its development over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text. 4.

  8. The Giver is one of my favorite books and I have taught with students from Grade 5 to Grade 10. Everyone loves the book. Kevin has created a great Hyperdoc that asks the Essential Questions: What does it mean to be “perfect”? Does your identity come from your outward appearance or your inward person? What would life be like without free will? How important really is the freedom to choose? https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/1xRVWEb517ec6K-ql2y3dMqC1Zb-HtaW0cjgBOfAacI0/edit?usp=sharing
  9. A few other options: https://www.nottingham.ac.uk/education/study/pgcei/index.aspx https://teach-now.edu/ https://www.sunderland.ac.uk/study/education/pgce-international-dl/
  10. Skype just launched a Meet Now feature. With Meet Now, hosts can create and share a free meeting with a few clicks. Meet Now doesn't require users to sign up or download the Skype application. This means that users can start a Skype call right from the website, much like its competitors. I tested this yesterday with a group and it worked beautifully. https://www.skype.com/en/free-conference-call/ Still a few things to consider before a big move: https://hothardware.com/news/microsoft-skype-meet-now-houseparty-zoom-video-chat
  11. Thanks for the review. Porto Alegre is one of my favorite cities in Brazil. I have spent many holidays there and love the city and the people. It has an old world charm to it. Where are you headed in the fall?
  12. One of the best practices in education is Project Based Learning (PBL). Having taught in classrooms where this is done, it is nothing short of incredible. I have tried with Buck Institute trainers and they were some of the most worthwhile training I have been to. During CoVid, they are offering some great classes for free. Check them out below. https://www.pblworks.org/free-webinars-pbl-online
  13. For adult teaching for ESL, I did the CELTA and it was great. It was a full month and challenging. But, well worth it. https://www.cambridgeenglish.org/teaching-english/teaching-qualifications/
  14. Google has put together this great place to learn how to teach from home. https://teachfromhome.google/intl/en/
