In this webinar we present the results of an investigation of linguistically responsive vocabulary teaching in a Year 7 science class. We discuss how an EAL and science teacher worked together to apply the whole school’s Three Tiers approach to literacy across the curriculum with reference to the sub-strand word knowledge as one feature of language in The Victorian Curriculum F-10: EAL. Amongst the findings, we discuss 24 strategies in science vocabulary identified in the investigation.
