The teacher I am following is Larry Ferlazzo. Mr. Ferlazzo’s blog is about different websites that he benefits from and feels he should share with others. I had to do a little research on Mr. Ferlazzo to find out more about him. Mr. Ferlazzo teaches Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced English Language to high school students. He teaches at Luther Burbank High School in Sacramento, California. He has been doing this for the past 5 years. Before teaching he worked as a community organizer. He is originally from New York. Mr. Ferlazzo has a personal drive to help people in impoverished communities and to work with young students.
Mr. Ferlazzo’s blog I read today is about a website called “Little Bird Tales” (littlebirdtales.com). It is a website he discovered through Richard Byrne. This website is currently free but Mr. Ferlazzo was not sure if this site would remain free. This site allows you to make slide shows by drawing pictures, uploading pictures and adding text. The site grabbed his attention because you can use audio narration for English Language Learners. It is a neat site, something that might interest all teachers and benefit students. As well as students with disabilities that require audio. Teachers and future teachers need to check this website out (click HERE).
Mr. Ferlazzo's blog post that I just read this week was an informative blog. In his blog he list the "Most Popular Post of the Month." These are the blog post in which his readers have clicked on the most. Click HERE to view his blog. Mr. Ferlazzo's blog is very informative and I have enjoyed reading his post. He has many sites to go to and get information that is very useful for the classroom. Also, he is very up to date on the teacher debate going on in Wisconsin at this very moment. Please take the time to view Mr. Ferlazzo's blog, you will enjoy it.
