2020 Teaching ESL Students in Mainstream Classrooms – Language in learning across the curriculum

9 Day Program – Over 2 months

back to Programs

This teacher development course brings a functional grammar perspective to the teaching of students who are learning English as a language that is not their primary language. This nine-module course is aligned with the current literacy requirements of the Australian Curriculum in that it also considers all teachers as teachers of language in their subject areas.

The course uses the creation of oral and written texts in the classroom as the basis for the support and development of academic English. The course supports teachers with the literacy demands of their subject areas thus enabling their students to access and create the texts required of them.

This course is also suited to teachers of students with limited English language capabilities.

Completion of the nine modules, including workshops, classroom-based activities, and readings is equivalent to 50 hours of professional learning leading to a Certificate of Completion.

Participants will gain through the course readings and activities between each module, a deep understanding of second and subsequent language acquisition and assessment, and learn how to explicitly teach the genres specific to their subject area as students move from oral texts to academic written texts.
