Assessment, tracking and target setting strategies for teachers and teaching assistants
Are your EAL learners making good or better progress?
It is essential that EAL learners are tracked for their progress in language acquisition to ensure that their distinct learning needs are met and they achieve their full potential in all curriculum areas. This is particularly important for more advanced learners and those who have a good level of oral competence. The needs of these pupils are often missed and can result in poor progress and attainment as the language demands of the curriculum increase.
This book sets out to offer an effective approach to tracking the progress of the acquisition of English in EAL learners as well as identifying next steps. It is not intended to level or band pupils, but to ensure on-going development. It covers the areas of speaking, listening, reading and writing.
