The World Beyond Our Classroom Walls: Online Resources

Whether you are a first year teacher or a veteran teacher, we know that the demand to meet the needs of English Language Learners is no easy task.  ELLs face increasing academic challenges along with language learning demands.   

As educators, it is essential that we create windows in our classrooms.  Windows that allow students to see information and to access the world beyond our classroom walls.  Windows that give English Language Learners opportunities to engage with their peers, teachers, and the world.
