EAL Twilight Series
Explore the Fundamental Research and Strategies of Supporting EAL Learners in Whole-Class Teaching and School Wide
English as an Additional Language (EAL) pupils form a growing part of our schools’ population. Catering for these pupils’ needs within the mainstream classroom is crucial to ensuring that their level of English proficiency develops, and that they effectively learn the necessary curriculum content.
This two part twilight series provides practical training to support the learning of EAL pupils in the classroom: understanding their needs, identifying their proficiency and supporting their progress. This twilight is aimed at classroom teachers and support staff and those specialising in English as an Additional Language (EAL).
This twilight series will look at the research of the Bell Foundation and the EEF around learners with EAL and how we can support them. We will explore the differences between different learners’ starting points with English and how best to support them.
There will be an opportunity to explore methods for supporting learners with EAL and to discuss how this might translate in your own school or setting.
