Description

The SEND Code of Practice has reinforced the requirement that all teachers must meet the needs of all learners. This book provides practical, tried and tested strategies and resources that will support teachers in making modern foreign languages accessible, challenging and exciting for all pupils, including those with special needs. The author draws on a wealth of experience to share his understanding of how SEND can affect learning and how the MFL teacher can reduce or remove any barriers to learning.

Offering strategies that are specific to the context of MFL teaching, this book will enable teachers to:

  • ensure all pupils are able to participate fully in every lesson;
  • develop pupils’ understanding, motivation and enjoyment;
  • adapt content and resources when differentiating materials for pupils with a wide range of learning needs;
  • use formative assessments to measure learning.

An invaluable tool for whole-school continuing professional development, this text will be essential for teachers (and their teaching assistants) seeking guidance specific to teaching languages to all pupils, regardless of their individual needs. This book will also be of interest to SENCOs, senior management teams and ITT providers.
