And Now For Something Completely Different... And a Special Introductory Offer

For some time now I have had the idea of writing an online course. So last summer I got down to it. I bundled up the finished product and delivered it to the online platform that had agreed to market it.

One year later and I am still waiting for the online platform to deliver on their promises... Frustration city!  So , having given up on the platform that shall remain nameless,  i decided to take the matter into my own hands and publish it myself in my TPT store. 

This is an entirely new departure for me. Although my expertise is in teaching children with English as an Additional Language (EAL), and delivering training is my bread and butter, it is still a little nerve wracking to publish one's work. I have been teaching for over 12 years in a range of settings, including Primary and Secondary schools and adult learning. My current role is EAL Teacher Adviser for the County Borough which involves not only assessing and teaching children with limited English, but also training teachers and support staff, advising on EAL matters, and ensuring that support is targeted, relevant and delivered where it is most needed. I hope that you will benefit from the teaching tips in the course, as well as gain a better appreciation of what it means to be an EAL/ESL learner.

 If you have ever had to teach children with little or no English you will have experienced a range of challenges, from ensuring that the children can access your content to checking their understanding and developing their speaking and listening skills, and finally to assisting them to acquire the complex skills required to write successfully and at an academic level. Packed with teaching tips and strategies, this comprehensive course will significantly boost your confidence in teaching writing to children, especially those with English as an Additional Language. It can also be used in staff training sessions with teaching colleagues to inform their professional development.

This course is specifically suited for anyone who has contact with children with little or no English, whether in a school setting or for parents of EAL children. It is particularly valuable for anyone with responsibility for ensuring that EAL children are able to make progress in the mainstream setting, and preparing them for their academic journey. No longer worry about whether you are doing the best for EAL children in your care and feel confident with your planning, deliver and assessment.

The course is excellent value for money. It comprises an introduction, 5 full modules and a conclusion, as well as some handy quizzes to test your understanding as you work through the modules. I have had to break the course down into 5 separate resources for the purposes of meeting TPT's upload limit , but please read on for a special introductory offer. The full curriculum is outlined below.
