Carnival for ELL Blogs

The number of blogs focused on the education of English-language learners is slowly growing. You can become familiar with some of them by reading the fifth edition of the bi-monthly ELL/ESL/EFL Blog Carnival, hosted by Larry Ferlazzo over at Larry Ferlazzo's Websites of the Day. And if you know what all those acronyms in the name of the carnival stand for—English-Language Learner/English as a Second Language/English as a Foreign Language—I wager you might find the entries useful. I thought the entry offering a primer on "how to teach speaking" was interesting. I contributed an entry, "ELLs 'Are Sick of' Writing Their Immigration Story," marking my first time participating in this kind of blogging event.

Different bloggers will take turns hosting the carnival starting with the next edition. The deadline for submissions is July 31; the publication date is August 1. See Mr. Ferlazzo's carnival post for a submission form.
