This webinar is a collaboration between Kilkenny Education Centre, Clare Education Centre, Laois Education Centre, Limerick Education Centre and the English Language Support Teachers' Association of Ireland (ELSTA).
This webinar is an excellent opportunity to acquaint yourself with EAL teaching, the world of educating learners for whom English is an Additional Language. Discover practical tips and tools for EAL teaching and learning, explore how to overcome typical challenges experienced by learners with EAL, and review examples of practice to inform your work as an educator in linguistically diverse settings. While both a lack of knowledge of students’ mother tongues and a lack of experience in working with non-native English speakers can be daunting and challenging for schools, experienced teachers of students with EAL agree that it is possible to equip these students with tools, resources and strategies that they need to be successful in the classroom.
When you complete this webinar you will;
Understand the context for EAL in Ireland today,
Be equipped with practical tips and tools for EAL teaching,
Have explored typical challenges experienced by learners with EAL, and
Have reviewed samples of practice to enable transfer to own contexts.
You will also have an opportunity to ask questions/clarify aspects of the webinar content throughout the webinar.
