Course Length: 60 Minutes

Course Description


Students with English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D) requirements can have trouble connecting to the learning as well as other students in their class. However, using a play-based pedagogy the language barriers can be dropped and students of all backgrounds can become immersed in the learning that is happening in the classroom. In this session, the presenter will explore techniques that teachers can use to immerse the EAL/D students in the classroom and to enhance their connectivity to the learning and their fellow students. 

Presented by: Siobhan Hannan
