How to Teach Online with the Kid-Inspired ESL Curriculum

Interested in using the Kid-Inspired ESL Curriculum for teaching online?

There are 2 options:

  • The regular ESL Curriculum Membership was designed for classroom teachers
  • The Interactive Online ESL Curriculum & Student Portal designed for online teachers

Both options can be used for teaching online.

BUT…

…the interactive features in the regular ESL Curriculum Membership are limited.

Those interactive features that are included were designed more with classroom ELL teachers who have more students than they have time to meet with regularly, or who need to teach online temporarily due to school closures.

First…

Let’s take a look at what’s included with the basic ESL Curriculum Membership.

File Types Included in the Kid-Inspired ESL Curriculum Membership

There are 3 file types for the primary resources in the curriculum: 

  • PDF
  • PowerPoint 
  • NearPod

These can be used in a variety of ways to create engagement online.

Scroll down for information and video tutorials on using the materials online!

Horizontal & Vertical Options

All of the core resources in the membership include a vertical, portrait printable PDF option and a horizontal, landscape PPT option. The vertical resources are important because they:

  • Classroom teachers need printed material.
  • Students can write with actual pencil & paper even during online sessions.
  • Leaves white space around the sides for annotation and interaction while teaching in a classroom or online.

Landscape versions for the core resources have been developed to make sharing to a smartboard or online teaching even easier.

Zoom & Other Online Teaching Platforms

You can use the materials with Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Classin, OutSchool, or most any other platform for teaching online.

Google Slides & Google Classroom

You can also make the materials interactive by uploading to Google Slides.

Interactive Online ESL Curriculum & Student Portal

Due to popular demand…

We developed a platform specifically for online ESL teachers.

The needs of online ESL teachers are different than those of classroom teachers which is why we needed to create something separate and specifically designed with online teachers in mind.

That is how the Interactive Online ESL Curriculum & Student Portal came to be.

The new portal is jam-packed with interactive content that makes teaching online more fun, engaging, & effective.

  • The more fund, engaging, & effective lessons you provide, the happier your parents and students will be.
  • The better experience you provide your parents, the more classes they will take with you.
  • The more they will spread the word to other parents, helping you to bring in more students.
