Using blogs to teach is not a new idea, especially in the area of teaching English as a Second Language (ESL). There are many blogs available on the Internet that serve as excellent resources on ESL. Some ESL related blogs focus on sharing experiences. Some focus on actually presenting information on ESL to help students learn.
One example of an ESL blog is written by Ms. Lori Wolfe at, http://esleld.blogspot.ca Her blog provides a wide collection of interesting information on ESL. There are posts on advice about different instructional methodologies, ESL evaluation, and links to ESL teaching aids.
One link within Ms Wolfe’s blog was the link to the Whittier City School District (WCSD) website: (http://web.whittiercity.k12.ca.us/~eld/ELD/Welcome_Page.html). This website offers their own bog on ESL and a number of tools, including picture cards, videos, and examples of ESL learning objectives.
