Is it English as an Additional Language, a language disorder, or both?
- 22 September 2021
NEW: Guidance and resources for schools and teachers to support pupils who use EAL and their families to help mitigate any learning and language loss experienced during school closures.
This free webinar introduces an evidence-informed approach to mentoring early career teachers focused on adapting teaching for EAL learners.
The webinar will explain why it is important to introduce an explicit focus on supporting pupils using EAL in early career mentoring materials. It will also discuss how early career teachers can be effectively supported to adapt their teaching, enabling EAL learners to fully access the curriculum. Mentoring questions and examples of supplementary activities with a focus on EAL will be provided, and participants will have opportunities to explore these and make their own suggestions.
