EAL: Assessing and Improving Writing

16/03/2022 13:00 - 16:00

Level: All

Research, commissioned by Ofsted, revealed that there are some consistent areas in which EAL learners often encounter difficulties in relation to writing. This applies to children from a range of backgrounds and different ages.

The Teaching units to support guided sessions for writing in English as an additional language are an archived, downloadable National Strategy resource aimed at addressing specific grammar and vocabulary-extension needs of advanced EAL learners in developing writing. This session is aimed at helping EAL co-ordinators, teachers and TAs to become familiar with the teaching units and to trial the use of some of the resources.

This session will give you opportunities to:

  • consider the difficulties that EAL learners face in relation to writing;
  • develop awareness of strategies for supporting EAL pupils in writing; and
  • trial the use of some of the teaching units.
