Beyond Linguistic Needs
All teachers are EAL teachers. If you have a student who speaks another language from birth at home, then you are an EAL teacher. This webinar is open to beginning and advanced EAL teachers. You will discover very useful and practical information by participating.


Presenter: Philip McCarthy

Workshop Description

Philip will guide you through exploring how to cater for learners’ cultural, linguistic and identity needs. You will find out about intercultural communication and how it will enrich your classroom. The webinar is also designed to empower you to become a (more) culturally responsive teacher.
Moving on, he will help you, develop ideas for incorporating children’s first language or heritage language into their classroom practices. Philip will then show you how to use students' cultural capital as a resource in the classroom
