Hi Fred,

Thank you for the web sites you posted. Although I do not specifically teach ESOL classes, a lot of the grammar and spelling mini-lessons outlined in the various links on these sites look as though they may work really well for some of my students. I teach at a technical college, and so I have students of all ages and all ability levels, including students who are very smart, but for whom English is their second language. Since my classes are all online, hybrid, or web-enhanced, it is easy for me to attach links to my class so that students who may need some extra help in these areas can access these lessons directly. This was a real help to find these websites!

Best,
-Liz

Some thoughts with reference to adult literacy -

For busy adults working sometimes more than one job
and have little time/energy to work on self-literacy -

Use as a medium of instruction - post, post-classroom
content as a thirty second podcast via phone, for
re-emphasis, recall and to share tips. For ex.
"whenever you see this word, it should remind you of
pronoun."

Among adult literacy instructors -
Sharing instructional tips, a change in instructional
strategy, change of content if it makes better sense
during teaching. This exchange as voice mail or text
message would enable other instructors to test these
immediately in their classes and communicate the same
with others.
