An EAL/D Handbook:
Teaching and learning across the curriculum when English is an additional language or dialect
Helen Harper and Susan Feez (Editors)
Nearly half (45%) of all young people in Australia aged 12 to 24 are first- or second-generation migrants. Providing our EAL/D students with the teaching they need to succeed at school is critical to the quality of their integration into community, and for access to opportunities to achieve future goals. In this book, readers are invited into seven classrooms, where teachers share illustrations of practice designed to enable EAL/D learners to engage with curriculum. With contributions by Brian Gray, Beverly Derewinaka and Jenny Hammond, among notable others from the field of language education, mentors provide academic context to support transfer to other settings, and an introduction by Susan Feez and Helen Harper offers a thorough overview of EAL/D teaching and learning practice.
