Emma Sheppard, at the British International School in Vietnam, shared how her school approached whole-school literacy with an English as an additional language (EAL) focus.
This resource discusses:
- Why it is beneficial assigning specialists to lead strategies like these
- The importance of providing staff with accredited CPD courses
- How a shared terminology and uniform approach help to evolve teaching methods
- That cross curricular representation is important when taking the whole-school approach
Emma shares how a CPD course originally developed in Australia has been used in Vietnam, and is now being taken up by schools teaching Key Stage 2 and up in the UK, where there are a high percentage of EAL learners.
