Workshop: Language, Literacy and Learning in EAL children

DSC_7254On 21st March 2018 we hosted another successful research to practice event for teachers and education practitioners working with children who speak English as an additional language.

The event focused on four areas of research and practice with EAL children:
• Policy (Emily Waddilove and Naomi Flynn)
• Assessment (Katherine Solomon and Claudine BowyerCrane)
• Vocabulary, language and literacy (Kay Clarke and Holly Joseph)
• Home language and literacy (Jamie Earnshaw and Hamish Chalmers)

All slides are available here 

The first part of the afternoon consisted of presentations on all four areas from academics, policy makers, and expert practitioners. For the second part of the afternoon attendees attended a marketplace forum to find out more about research, practice and policy in relation to EAL children. We had representatives from The Young Interpreter SchemeBilingualism Matters, the Centre for Literacy and Multilingualism, NALDIC, and many more.

Thank you to all our wonderful speakers and presenters for a great day!
