Event description

Description

EAL learning, pedagogy, and materials

A workshop presented by Annina Hessel (University of Oxford)


The session will start by giving an overview of facts about EAL pupils, including (i) the relationship between English proficiency and educational achievement, (ii) what is currently known about the time it takes beginning learners to reach fluency in English, and (iii) the continuing language support needs of advanced EAL pupils. Particular attention will be paid to research on vocabulary development and reading comprehension: two aspects of language learning that develop throughout school time.

The second part of the session will consist in demonstrations and hands-on tasks exploring how to best support EAL learners, with a particular focus on inclusive, language-conscious teaching. There will also be a demonstration of how to prepare appropriate materials. The session will be informed by research evidence and best practice examples from EAL professionals.

Between the two parts, there will be an opportunity for informal networking or discussions over refreshments.

The event is free, but you are kindly asked to register for catering purposes.
