I’m happy to report that my old school won a New Jersey Best Practices award for an ESL Literature Circle Weblog that we started last year with the ESL classes and the library. From the press release:
The ESL Literature Circle includes the selection and discussion of reading material in a Literature Circle format and is designed to increase students’ English language skills through reading, listening and writing activities. Students also write and post summaries of their reading on a Weblog, which includes online discussions.
It’s great to see the imagination of the teachers and the technology get some recognition.
