The EAL Teaching Book
Promoting Success for Multilingual Learners

Third Edition


May 2019 | 224 pages | Learning Matters
This book is a complete guide to understanding, learning from and teaching bilingual and EAL children in schools. It begins by asking 'who are EAL learners' and challenges some of the misconceptions about this group. It goes on to examine language in depth, providing focused theory to help teachers and trainees better understand the wider context of children's needs. This theory is supported by a wealth of information on practical teaching strategies and resources. It also covers planning across the curriculum for EAL, assessing EAL and bilingual learners and classroom organisation. New to this second edition is a chapter on using home languages and cultures in learning as well many new case studies from practising teachers offering insight and knowledge on teaching this particular group.

A clearly written basic introduction to supporting EAL learners in the classroom
