Wednesday 19 June 2019, 1:00pm - 3:30pm
Box Hill Town Hall
This session will focus on the ten most effective strategies mainstream English teachers can employ when supporting EAL students with various needs, levels of English proficiency and cultural backgrounds. The strategies suggested will also cover the broad range of macro skills students are expected to employ in an English classroom and how teachers can facilitate students’ development of these key skills. Developing a greater awareness of the linguistic demands of the mainstream English curriculum combined with subsequent assessment expectations and the implications for EAL learners, will also be a focal point of the session.
