Although teachers pay teachers is primarily designed for educators who are looking for classroom materials, it can also be used by students in two distinct ways.
First, students can use it to find study materials on topics they are interested in. Many of the descriptions are written in "teacher speak"' however, so students may initially need some help from teachers in order to determine the key words to use in their search. With that small adaptation, teachers pay teachers can become a valuable library of study materials for students.
Second, students could also create a teachers pay teachers page. By providing the study materials they have created and found helpful, they could provide a valuable perspective for teachers. Student work may have mistakes, but the experience of designing and publishing study materials, lessons, and guides can be a powerful.
I hope these ideas inspire you to explore the resources on teachers pay teachers. How do you plan to use the site?
If you haven’t already, make a visit to the JenniferESL Youtube channel. Poke around and find a video that’s particularly helpful or that you really enjoy. Once you have a recommendation, bring it back here and post it in the comments section to share with other students and teachers.
Learn English with Jennifer is a great channel for beginners. This video is the first in her beginners series. It might be too easy for you, so I recommend suggesting it to someone who’s just starting. Who will you recommend it to?
Many ESL Youtube channels are really designed for more advanced students, which is part of what makes Learn English with Jennifer (or Jennifer ESL) such a unique channel. Jennifer is a calm and organized teacher and most of her videos are perfect for beginning students. She even has videos on the English alphabet.
Of course, if you are looking for something a little more challenging, she also has a video series on academic English, as well as one on pronunciation. Since her channel has been in operation for few years, she has many resources available for online students.
