Web Sites for Teaching English-Language Learners About Libraries

| 1 Comment

Prolific blogger Larry Ferlazzo gives a nod to National Library Week by posting "the best sites to teach ELLs about libraries."

I'm sure that Ferlazzo wouldn't disagree with me that one of the best ways to teach ELLs about libraries is to take them to a library. But these Web sites provide activities that could be used to set up the visit.

I've noticed that Stephen D. Krashen, who is an expert on ELLs and a huge fan of libraries, consistently speaks up in public forums about the need for libraries in schools and communities to be well supported.

Mary Ann,

You're absolutely right -- the best (and, I think, only) use for this list is in preparation for a trip to the library....

Larry
