About the course
The SSTUWA, in partnership with TLN in Melbourne, are pleased to offer this online learning opportunity.
This is a short and sharp (30 minute) introduction to understanding the learning needs of EAL students; those students in our classes for whom English is an Additional Language. It is a course designed for those teachers and education staff who have no formal training in working with EAL students. In this course an experienced teacher and leader responds to key questions that teachers and education staff have about EAL students. You can choose to watch a single part of the course; if you choose to engage with all elements of the course then at the conclusion you should have a basic understanding of the learning needs of EAL students. The course does not cover teaching strategies for EAL students, those ideas can be found in other courses being delivered by the Teacher Learning Network or your union. This course can be considered as a prerequisite for courses on teaching strategies for EAL students.
