Hi All -
Larry Ferlazzo has put together tremendous resources for teachers and
students. He teaches Social Studies and English to English Language
Learners and native-English speakers at Luther Burbank High School in
Sacramento, CA. He was named the Grand Prize Winner of the 2007
International Reading Association Presidential Award For Reading and
Technology. He has a website with over 7,000 categorized links
accessible to English Language Learners and younger native English
speakers at http://www.bayworld.net/ferlazzo/english.html and a blog
(http://larryferlazzo.edublogs.org/) where he daily shares new
content added to the website. A few months ago, I shared his student
examples page (http://www.bayworld.net/ferlazzo/Student%20Work.htm l)
with Friday 5 readers; it's helpful because I'm always seeking
concrete examples of student technology use. Thanks, Larry, for
sharing your expertise with us!
