Just another WordPress.com site


I was asked recently to share a top 10 list of helpful sites.

I don’t have a top 10 list.

So I’m going to come up with one.

Teaching Channel

One of the most recent sites I’ve come across that embodies professional development the way I think it needs to be done now is The Teaching Channel.

In their words: Teaching Channel is a video showcase — on the Internet and TV — of innovative and effective teaching practices in America’s schools.

In my words, it is nothing short of amazing. It allows teachers to follow their interests and get, in very short increments, an amazing amount of professional development, whether that be a really quick teaching tip, like standing in the same place to always get students’ attention or ways to encourage class participation through hand signals, to in-depth lessons with links, so you can replicate the exemplary teaching you see in the videos.

It’s not specifically targeted at English Language Learners, but I can see a whole lot of ways this site will be my go-to place in the next year as I switch gears and move to the high school set.
