Hi everyone,

       I guess most of the country had a beautiful weekend but our commiserations go to those in the north who are once again dealing with heavy rain. I hope you are all coping in what must be very trying circumstances for you and many of your students.
Last week I uploaded a further Setting the Standard resource to the Secondary ESOL Online VLN group. Most of these resources have been uploaded now - just a couple to go.
We also discussed memorising techniques and resources. It would be good to add some of these to our Google doc Online tools for ELLs and their teachers.

English Online shared a post from Cynthia Orr regarding moderation. Cynthia noted that tasks are only moderated if issues with assessor judgements are the result of flawed assessment materials. This also applies to ESOL moderation.

Have a great week
