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 are chapters on Language across the curriculum in secondary settings and Using home languages and cultures in learning. In addition many new case studies from practising teachers offer insight into working with EAL learners. Student feedback on this book: "I found the book useful to not only read from start to finish, but also to dip in and out of when I required guidance in a particular area such as planning for EAL learners or assessing their progress. Each chapter contains case studies which I found very interesting; these specific cases put the points made in the book into a real-life context which was a lot more relatable for me...I feel this book has not only given me some great ideas for the classroom, but has given me the opportunity to develop my understanding of what it is like to be an EAL learner. It has guided me in terms of planning, strategies, resources and assessment, and explained how, when used effectively, each of these areas can help multilingual pupils progress and develop." - Jasmin, Primary Teacher Trainee (University of Northampton)

Industry Reviews

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
