Tan Huynh Articles & Resources

Tan Huynh keeps a schedule that would cause many people to weep in a dark corner over a tub of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream. If you follow him on Twitter, you know that the guy posts tweets in his sleep.

And speaking of Twitter, if you don't follow him there, you should. He provides a daily dose of practical teaching ideas, strategies and inspiration. You can follow him here.

Tan has also created a wonderful book club discussion group on Twitter with Katie Toppel that you can join by following the hash tag #ellchat_bkclub

Tan has also created an online conference with Carol Salva called @VirtuELConf. Carol and Tan have been brining in experts to help support teachers of ELLs since 2017. 

His blog, Empowering ELLs, is also a wonderful resource where you can find well-written, well-researched articles on important teaching subjects. 

He also runs a couple of professional development courses on Scaffolding Learning as well as Teacher Collaboration. You can find more information about those courses here.

He is also planning on starting a podcast which I'm sure will be done with the same quality that Tan brings to everything he does. I will provide a link to his podcast as soon as it is available.
