Primary EAL in the Mainstream JAWS
Please see FOBISIA Community Forum (http://community.fobisia.org/node/845) for more information.
Supporting EAL learners is a key priority for many international schools across Asia. Current research suggests that EAL learners can achieve as well, if not better than their native English-speaking peers. The most effective way to ensure success for these learners is to provide a language rich, scaffolded curriculum where English is explicitly taught and modelled in every class. At this event, participants will share how EAL is supported within their classrooms and will explore themes such as planning, assessing, scaffolding and creating language rich learning opportunities.
There will also be a Keynote from Nord Anglia Education's Teaching Fellow for EAL on "Creating a culture of high expectation for all language learners"
