As the number of children for whom English is an Additional Language in schools increases, how do teachers and trainees prepare to support them to succeed?  

This text is their toolkit.  A complete guide to understanding, learning from and teaching bilingual and EAL children in schools.

The text begins by asking ′who are EAL learners′ and challenges some of the misconceptions about this group.  It goes on to examine language in depth, providing focused theory to help teachers and trainees better understand the wider context of children′s needs.  This theory is supported by a wealth of information on practical teaching strategies and resources in the promoting learning section.  The text covers planning across the curriculum for EAL, assessing EAL and bilingual learners and classroom organisation, offering day-to-day practical support for teachers.

New to this second edition is a chapter on Using home languages and cultures in learning as well many new case studies from practising teachers offering insight and knowledge on teaching this particular group.

About the Author:

Dr. Jean Conteh is a senior lecturer in the School of Education at the University of Leeds, where she teaches on the PGCE Primary course and on MA courses. She has worked in many countries and is a very experienced teacher educator. She has published widely in the field of EAL in primary education, both for teachers and for academic audiences. Her research focuses on ways to promote success for those pupils who are often labelled ‘disadvantaged’ in our education system, and covers the role of language in teaching and learning in primary classrooms and the expertise and professional roles of bilingual teachers.

Review:

What marks the book out is its delicate and nuanced inter-weaving of theory and practice. Jean draws on a long body of diverse research, which amplifies and is in its turn amplified by the vignettes of children and teachers' practices and the case studies that give rich and varied examples of effective things to do to promote language and learning across the curriculum.--Frank Monaghan, the Open University
