Just wondering how your school is going with your new EAL program?
That’s really interesting. I have done quite a bit of assessor training and there is often a lot of ‘disagreement’ at the start of the discussion. Even very experienced markers/teachers will see different things in different pieces and it takes a while to reach a consensus. I agree, it is really important to have these discussions to make sure everyone’s on the same page, so to speak!
I agree with mrslpr, Jenny at LMERC is fantastic and would have lots of ideas. Perhaps you could also get in touch with a nearby language centre or school? They often have lots of great age appropriate resources and they would probably be happy to give you some recommendatons for authors or publishers. Good luck!April 4, 2019 at 1:47 pm in reply to: English as an Additional Language curriculum update #10355
I agree with all of your points. I haven’t had a chance to read it really closely yet. I really like the addition of plurilingualism and I think that is a concept that all teachers should be aware of!
I would recommend contacting the VCAA as they are responsible for the VCE EAL Study Design. Keep an eye out for Ticking Mind PD too – they offer really good workshops but can book out quickly.
