Description

You enjoy teaching and, like every other teacher, you want the best for every English as an Additional Language (EAL) learner. However, recently, you have found a steady stream of learners coming to your school with little or no English and you aren’t really sure how to provide the best possible education for them when they are struggling to understand the English in your already differentiated lessons.

You’d not only like some guidance on how to bridge the gap between these learners and their peers, but some suitable resources for that initial induction as well as some guidance on catering for a variety of language learners in the classroom.

This book provides you with an induction to English complete with integral assessment (alongside suggestions on how to include parents who are new-to-English and ideas on family learning). You’ll also find an EAL framework to provide some structure to your provision across the school as well as guidance on how to approach class teaching.

Developed from good practice in schools and informed by research, this induction-to-English is designed to move children into English quickly through a visual, structured approach to learning English which works well alongside immersion in the mainstream.

  •          A structured approach to including parents with a framework for supporting new-to-English parents through English to Speaking of Other Languages (ESOL) and family learning.
  •          An EAL framework to support school in addressing whole school needs as well as guidance on teaching new-to-English learners in the mainstream.
  •          A systematic approach to teaching an induction to English including integral and baseline assessment as well as resources for every lesson.
  •          Revised methodology and resources to provide a more streamlined approach to moving into English quickly.
