  • Group A - EAL contemporary issue My name is Salam Mohannayeh, I am 10 years old and I have been learning English for a year now. My first language is Arabic, the language is similar to English as they both have punctuation. It would really help me if my teachers would use actions to help explain things. I find reading and writing quite difficult, however I enjoy speaking and listening.

    My name is Daniella Almeida and I have been learning English for 7 months. My first language is Portuguese; the language is similar to English as they have the same spelling and punctuation. It would really help me if my teachers would use subtitles and pictures.

  • Group A - EAL contemporary issue Keywords

    How and why?

    Set explicit listening tasks around key words either for the whole class or individual students.

    For example

    make a tally chart of the number of times the teacher uses certain words

    A bingo chart of key words to cross off during a talk or clip

  • Group A - EAL contemporary issue DARTS

    How and why?DARTs are directed activities related to texts. Examples include

    sequencing; prioritising; matching pictures to text; matching phrases to definitions; matching examples of cause and effect; filling in gaps in text; the use of true/false statements; matching concepts to examples; sorting to determine which information is not needed for a piece of work; grouping information together to identify similarities and differences betweenkey words and phrases.

  • Cloze ProcedureAlso known as fill in the blanksA cloze procedure is a "fill-in-the-blanks" activity where the learner uses clues from the context to supply words that have been deliberately removed from the text.

  • Why use it?Using cloze-procedure helps pupils with their reading and writing. Using this activity will help support learners in looking at either semantic patterns or sentence structure. Writing is the hardest skill for bilingual pupils to master so it is important to scaffold writing tasks by using writing frames, matching words to pictures and using cloze procedures.

  • Group A - EAL contemporary issue Each child has a nominated talk partner. Partners change every half term. Strategies such as think, pair and share encourage EAL pupils to have a chance to interact and voice an opinion. The use of first language for learning is acknowledged and children are able to choose which language they want to discuss concepts in before sharing their thoughts with the class in English, to aid their understanding. Think, Pair, Share How and why?

  • Group A - EAL contemporary issue Role modelsHow and why? Use group work to help EAL students hear positive English language models.

    This may also be helpful to the student in internalising the hidden rules of language inside and outside the classroom.

  • Group A - EAL contemporary issue RehearsalsHow and why? Prime EAL students that you will come to them for answers.

    Ask them in the interim to orally rehearse these with a (helpful) peer.

    This technique may be usefully applied to all students.

    Group A - EAL contemporary issue

  • Group A - EAL contemporary issue Writing frame

    How and why? Provide students with a list of words and phrases appropriate for use in the writing task set.

    e.g.

    Write a news report on the water cycle

    Good evening viewersPrecipitationIn the mountains...CloudsThe sun shining on the sea...

  • Writing frame The topic of the question is an exclusion - so it would be good to use other school terminology in your response. Here are some useful words your could use in your response: appeal request decision policy action consideration exclusion contract anger management remorse (to show you are sorry)

    Sentences starter: Dear Ms. HThank you for taking the time to read this letter. I understand you are a very busy woman and would like to stress what a fantastic job you are doing running X School.
