I recently delivered a webinar to NATESOL on writing for EAL learners. Writing is such an integral part of an EAL learners success at schools. Yet, some schools do not explicitly teach writing which puts EAL learners at risk of underachievement. Through an explicit focus on writing within curriculum contexts and genres we as teachers greatly enhance EAL learners chances of success.
In this webinar, I discuss:
- The challenges that EAL learners face with writing
- Some of the research around writing for EAL learners
- How we can support EAL learners with writing within the curriculum
- Strategies and approaches for supporting EAL learners

I hope you find my webinar useful and remember, my classroom strategies page has a number of ways in which teachers can support EAL learners with their writing.
