What's in a Student's Name? - 15 views

  •  
    Often, the first knowledge a teacher has of an English Language Learner (ELL) in the classroom is his name on a roster. It may look different from typical U.S. names. You may not know how to pronounce it. Sometimes you may be able to guess what language an ELL speaks by looking at his name and sometimes not. How can you prepare to best welcome this learner?

    Got  Moodle? Subscribe to the  Extensive Reading approach to second language acquisition? If so, check out the  Moodle Reader Module, a plugin that provides quizzes on more than 600 graded readers and books for EFL/ESL students. According to developer  Tom Robb of Kyoto Sangyo University, "The Reader module allows quizzes to be randomly generated from a larger set of items for each book. The module allows teachers to easily install the module on their own Moodle system, download the quiz material for those textbooks in their graded reader library, and configure its operation to their own preferences." Be aware that you must supply the actual reading materials to your students; Reader Module is strictly a means for administering quizzes based on the reading. Also, as a security measure, Tom requires that you contact him via email for authorization to download the quizzes. Visit moodlereader.org for all the details, including the option to establish your own free course area on his Moodle site.
