Panel Discussion – Teaching Learners for whom English is an Additional Language
Catering for the language and literacy development of English language learners is a long-term, shared school community commitment. The most effective EAL provision involves a whole-school approach. This means that English language learners and their families are acknowledged, consulted, included, and active participants in the school community.

This panel discussion will concentrate on effective strategies teachers and schools have put in place which have made a positive difference for teachers, learners, families and school communities and have improved for young people. It is important for developing multilingual young people to not only learn English, but to maintain their home language(s) and feel a sense of belong both in their school and in their community. A strong home/school/community network can foster a strong sense of cultural and linguistic identity in young people.



There will be inputs from a school leader, EAL, teachers, an SNA, a school secretary, an English language learner and parent.

By participating in this webinar, you will be better equipped to further enhance a supportive, and diverse school environment that will make English language learners and their families feel welcome.

By attending this webinar we expect that you will have an understanding of the ‘big picture’ as with regards to working with English language learners.

When you complete this webinar, you will:
• be better equipped to further enhance a supportive, and diverse school environment that will make English language learners and their families feel welcome.
• Have practical planning, teaching, assessment, and communication resources that will guide you in working as a SET/EAL or EAL teacher or as a mainstream teacher with English language learners in your class.


You will be encouraged to ask questions / clarify aspects of webinar content throughout the session.
