Classrooms of Possibility: Supporting at-risk EAL students draws together recent work from a number of researchers and educators who have focused on the needs and challenges of at-risk English as an Additional Language (EAL) students, including those from refugee backgrounds, and EAL students who have had minimal or disrupted schooling prior to arriving in Australia.
The book has three main aims:
To address the needs of At Risk EAL students once they are integrated into mainstream classes.
To focus on teaching and learning practices within mainstream classes that are likely to support At Risk EAL students to engage fully and equitably in the school curriculum.
To address the specific needs of At Risk EAL students by proposing ways in which teachers can better support such students to develop academic language and literacy.
