Excellence for EAL learners – a whole school approach

A 2 day workshop hosted by Harrow Beijing
  • Friday 2nd – Saturday 3rd March 2018
  • For primary and secondary teachers of all subjects

This workshop explores how EAL learners can be supported to reach their full potential across the whole school – from Early Years/Pre-K to Sixth Form/Grade12-13 – within the academic curriculum, pastoral support and enrichment provision. It is aimed at teachers across all disciplines and not only at colleagues working in the EAL team. We are all teachers of language!

Sessions will unpack how language development can be a core component of teaching and learning in all parts of the school. We will look at ways all teachers can integrate language and content in our planning, teaching and assessment, how EAL students can be engaged in high order thinking and effective models for collaborative planning and co-teaching. Participants will come away with practical strategies they can employ in their own classrooms immediately as well as plans for next steps at a department or whole school level. Workshops will be aimed at both primary and secondary specialists as well as covering broader topics including ICT applications, drawing on your cultural context and pastoral/enrichment opportunities. A learning walk and marketplace will allow for peer-to-peer learning, and participants may offer to lead a workshop in an area of interest.
