An EAL expert working alongside you guiding and helping you in your classroom for a whole morning!
Imagine then if this EAL expert sat down with you to review the morning and help you plan strategies and develop resources so that the next day would be better.
Imagine if that morning turned into six days – six whole days of working closely with your EAL expert.
Imagine if, with the support of your EAL expert, you were able to share your experiences and the expertise you had acquired over those six days with your colleagues so that the whole school could benefit.
Teachers work alongside an expert practitioner to plan, teach and evaluate a series of lessons and:
Translate what we know about EAL into effective, everyday classroom practice for pupils new to English and those who need to further develop their academic literacy
Try out new strategies in a safe, supported environment
Reflect with the coach on what has been effective
Strengthen their practice and extend their repertoire of teaching strategies
Create with their coach new resources customised to your curriculum and your pupils
