EAL TeachMeet Hull

Page history last edited by Kamil Trzebiatowski 5 years, 9 months ago



Don't miss it! - EAL TeachMeet!

A very rare and unique opportunity! Come along, present, share ideas and learn from others on how to teach and support EAL Learners in mainstream classrooms. There are very few EAL TeachMeets out there, and even fewer opportunities like this (if any!) in the Yorkshire / Humberside area - don't miss this one!

We are very proud that Frank Monaghan has agreed to come all the way from London to deliver a keynote on The Distinctiveness of EAL. Frank is a co-opted member of NALDIC (National Association for Language Development in the Curriculum), editor of NALDIC Quarterly and Senior Lecturer in Education and Language Studies at the Open University.

Come, listen and share practice with other practitioners in the EAL field and teachers working in the mainstream with EAL learners, and network!


Sign up at: http://www.eventbrite.com/e/eal-teachmeet-hull-tickets-14995055615  



You will be able to deliver either a 7-minute or 3-minute presentation on the topic of EAL - as long as it is within the theme of EAL in the Mainstream, we'd like to hear it!

  • You must be a teacher or support staff in a classroom - EAL or mainstream.
  • You cannot pitch any products for sale.
  • You can use any presentation format you'd like; if you are using a digital presentation such as PowerPoint, please send your presentation before the event.
