Co-Teaching Strategies

Recently Dr. V Rojas spent a week at our school working with parents, children and staff. One aspect of her work with us we are looking to explore next term is co-teaching strategies.
Jennifer Kightley at the Ambrit International School in Rome has already spent time with her EAL team and class teachers exploring these strategies. Have a look at their blog for articles and resources to support some INSET in your school on co-teaching strategies.

Thank-you to Jennifer for sharing her blog.

Book Review

Equal Rights to the Curriculum: Many Languages, One Message

by Eithne Gallagher

 I loved everything about this book; an easy read with up-to-date relevant messages about issues in an International School. It includes ideas about actively promoting bilingualism as well as supporting EAL learners. I just wish I could convince everyone in my school to read it as there are constant references throughout the book about how bilingualism should be seen as a resource not a problem. It certainly made me look again with a different perspective at the children I work with and I am one of the converted.
