When teaching ESL college writing, I think most teachers prioritize content and structure over language. Even though there are good reasons for this, students' ability to use appropriate language correctly has a big impact on the quality of their writing. I am sharing an activity I used to augment my compare & contrast pattern lesson. Since we did not have much time to practice in class, and I wouldn't be able to grade more homework, I figured a self-grading activity would help students notice how these words and phrases are used. I am sharing this, not so much for the activity as for the free, open-source, online website I used to create it. I have posted a screenshot of the activity as embedded on my coursewebsite; I am not sure the code will work on this website. The application can be used to create lots of other class activities which are compatible with most LMS and websites. Check it out -if you didn't know about it.
