Teaching ESL students in mainstream classrooms: Language in learning across the curriculum is a four-day professional development course that enables schools to build knowledge, skills and understandings to better support the language and learning needs of EAL/D students.
This course provides a deeper understanding of second language acquisition and enables participants to understand the importance of oral language development to embed reading and writing across the curriculum.
The nine modules are interactive and engaging and will involve participants sharing their knowledge and experiences while developing their understandings of EAL/D children and their literacy development.
The outline of the ESL in the mainstream course includes:
Module 1: ESL students and learning in a second language
Module 2: Language and learning and the role of scaffolding Module 3: Oral language: How the task shapes the talk
