Web Resource Guide for Learning English
 
ELL students have the option of designing a website/blog to evaluate web-based resources for English Language Learners.  All written work may be completed in the student's preferred language.
 
 
STEP ONE
Set criteria for evaluating each web tool.  For example:
 
*Appropriateness for Age Groups/Levels--Does this tool include an alphabet, pronunciation key, pictures, audio, and video to support a particular age group or level of learners? 
 
*Clarity--How easy is it to navigate?  What supports are offered?
 
*Level of Engagement--Is this tool fun and exciting?  How long would this tool hold the interest of the user?
 
*Access--Is the tool free or partially free to use?  Must you become a member and/or share personal information in order to use the tool?
 
*Starred Review--On a scale of one to five, how many stars would you use to rate this tool?
 
STEP TWO 
Select at least three web tools to evaluate from this list:  ESL Resources
 
STEP THREE 
For each of your chosen web tools, write an evaluative paragraph (three paragraphs, total).  
 
STEP FOUR  
Select a graphic to add to your website and write an "About" paragraph, briefly describing the purpose of your website.
 
STEP FIVE  
Publish your paragraphs and graphic on your website.
