I am trying to create a class wiki for my ESL
students. The main topic would revolve around learning English. Anyone
know of any good wikis that I can direct my students to for ideas. Also
does anyone know of any experts who would be interested in editing and
commenting on student work?

I am also interested in connecting with other ESL/ELD teachers. Anyone intrested in collaborating on a project?

Your ESL students can read a lot of English written by other kids, for free, at www.epals.com. Look at the Student Forums on a variety of topics. Sports and Music are very popular and have a lot of postings to read. Many are short and use simple vocabulary and sentence structure, good for learning a new language but not stilted textbook language.

If they want to post their questions, answers and comments, you will have to get them ePals SchoolMail accounts (also free). All forums are moderated by ePals staff members, so no mean or bullying comments are posted.

If you want to learn more, I do webinars about once a week on these free tools. Sign up at: http://epals.101.sgizmo.com. Lots of English teachers are part of English Companion Ning created by Jim Burke.
