16th March, 2020 @ 9:00 am
16/03/2020 - 9:00 am - 11:00 am
EAL/D students represent a growing population in Independent schools, prompting schools to consider how best to support these students and their families. Clear whole-school practice regarding enrolment, communication, shared understanding, language learning and access to the curriculum is necessary.
This two- hour workshop will assist school leaders and their staff in determining best practice within their school context. Topics covered include:
- What information should I seek and how is it obtained?
- How do I best engage in open and supportive conversation?
- What supports are available for families? (NAP, Secondary School of English, parenting support)
- What additional information might be relevant for new arrival and refugee families?
Assessment and monitoring of language
- What tools and resources are available? (SA Department for Education Language and Literacy Levels, Australian Curriculum EAL/D Progressions)
- What professional learning is available for staff? (CEASA, SA Department for Education Language and Literacy Levels)
- What does inclusion look like for EAL/D students?
- Advice within the Australian Curriculum to support rigour and engagement for EAL/D students.
Teachers and leaders with responsibility for supporting EAL/D students and families.
