Rewordify.com: Understand what you read - 85 views

  •  
    Rewordify takes a complex passage and rephrases it in simpler terms. Students can adjust Rewordify's settings to match their needs. For example, students can add words to a "skip list" and those words will not be changed when they appear in a passage. Students can also use Rewordify to simply highlight difficult words instead of having them replaced.

The Education of English Language Learners: Research to Practice (Review) | TCRecord - 18 views

  • In many ways, this book affirms what seems intuitive, and the cross-cutting themes that surface are not necessarily new. For example, “English Language Development needs to be explicit” seems self-evident and has been discussed in other sources. Where the value of the book lies is in its communication of how much we do in fact know.
  •  
    A comprehensive overview of the book and a brief critical review at the end.
