This engaging and informative book is written to help you to cater for the needs of pupils learning English as an additional language (EAL). It will support all primary-phase practitioners, including staff working with pupils learning EAL, key staff working on ethnic minority achievement, governors with specific responsibility for inclusion, and student teachers working towards Qualified Teaching Status. This book includes sections that will help you to: dispel the myths surrounding effective provision for pupils learning EAL; support whole-school approaches for ethnic minority achievement; use research about bilingualism to inform best practice for beginner and advanced bilingual learners; and, develop appropriate and targeted interventions for EAL learners. While good practice for ethnic minority achievement is clearly about quality-first teaching, this book explains that there is something distinctive about the needs of EAL learners and offers a range of practical ideas and strategies to support this area of work. Ethnic, linguistic and cultural diversity should be recognised as an asset to be respected and celebrated. This book will help you to achieve this. This title contains 64 A4 pages.
