An experienced teacher named Rita Pierson gave a great presentation last year with great advice especially for teachers and parents. However, as Pierson says, "Every child deserves a champion, an adult who will never give up on them." Every adult has an influence on the children around them. Hopefully, our influence is positive.
I made a PDF guide that contains some extension activities and discussion questions especially for students preparing for the TOEFL or IELTS exams. You can find the video and the PDF on my blog: http://goo.gl/hi61IC
