Hi everyone

      I hope the first week went well for you all. Last week was quite as everyone settled down into the new term. I posted notification of the inclusion of EAP standards for Auckland University's AELRs.
On other communities 
Primary ESOL Online Janet posted on planning templates and the teaching as inquiry cycle
and have discussed bilingual dictionaries.

Secondary Literacy Online Alana posted on thinking about thinking.
English Online Mariette Dodd shared a document called Navigating NZQA which may be useful to teachers new to the NZQA website.
In the wider community
Samoan Language Week will be on May 26th-30th. What are you planning for this week?  Previously posted are the Pacific Achievers videos - they may well be worth a look for this week.
Other language weeks are

Cook Islands Language Week:      4-10 August 
Tonga Language Week:                1-7September
Tuvalu Language Week:                29 September-5 October
