      I am a specialist Art teacher and was wondering if anyone has any tips to share as to how to assist EAL students in a mainstream classroom? Our sessions are only 40 minutes so any assistance in how to help EAL students to understand instructions or expectations would be greatly appreciated

      I think the biggest thing to do is to have visuals in view for the students. If there are a few steps for them to complete, then pictures of the steps work better and having them on constant display makes it easier for the students to access. It might take some time to set up, but it will help. Also it is important to show them step by step – modelling is the key. Our Art teacher always has a bigger example on display, and talks the students through each step to show them what she is expecting… I hope this helps 🙂
