TESOL (B) Special Course - EDUP4069

Year - 2020

This UOS follows on from EDUP4068 and assists participants to engage more fully with the profession generally and the teaching of EAL in particular. An important focus in EDUP4069 will be the role of ESL pedagogy in supporting writing in multilingual classrooms. This will include, assessment of writing using the ESL scales, and the teaching of writing across key language focus areas. There will be particular emphasis on designing a teaching sequence to explicitly teach EAL students how to write a specific text type. In addition we will re-visit key aspects of EAL pedagogy through the teaching of a contemporary literary text. Our work on pedagogy for grammar teaching will also continue. In line with concurrent UOS in this semester there will be a focus on technology and EAL pedagogy. Finally, participants will begin their journey as EAL experts through the design of an in-service presentation.
