The theme this year surrounds the idea that technology and media are an integral part of language learning. For English language learners, we must continue to show media in other forms outside of the textbook. This includes multimodal texts, media not limited to images, and video. The conference provides the opportunity to present either research or practical methods that apply to English Language Learners. Join us to learn about practices being incorporated in throughout New York State.

The Annenberg-funded Connect with English course and website [www.learner.org/series/cwe] will be going offline after April 2, 2018. This video series uses a fictional narrative to teach and test language skills for students who are learning English as a second language. Many of your members and students have used the series at no charge from the Learner.org website. However, after April 2, the series will be removed from the learner.org website. We would appreciate if you would pass this information along to your members through your internal communications.
Purchasing the Video Series
If your members would like to purchase a copy of the video series on DVD (48 programs on 5 DVDs), they may do so at the deeply discounted price of $99.00, plus shipping and handling, by visiting Connect with English Overview [http://www.learner.org/resources/series71.html] > Buy Videos and Materials. The original cost of the video series was $389.00. Our goal is to get the series to as many TESOL teachers as possible before we have to end our distribution.

From the fabulous Larry Ferlazzo blog comes this link to a short, cute basically wordless animated videos that students could watch and describe in speaking, writing, or…whatever! Let your imagination and needs guide the use and enjoy! Desert Critters
