Description

Drawing on the latest research into how young children learn, this book considers how early years practitioners can best meet the needs of children with English as an Additional Language. It examines the factors that influence children’s learning including parents and the family, the environment, health and well-being, curriculum, play and relationships and aims to challenge misconceptions, assumptions and stereotypes.

Featuring case studies and reflective questions, the chapters explores a range of important topics including:

  • Language learning for children with EAL
  • The historical concept and modern reconceptualisation of EAL
  • How to develop and use Culturally Appropriate Pedagogy
  • Regulation, performativity and their implications for children with EAL
  • Leading learning for children with EAL

Meeting the Needs of Young Children with EAL is essential reading for students and practitioners wanting to promote an inclusive culture where different languages, cultures and religions are accepted and celebrated.
