‘Writing is central to EAL/D students’ learning at school. Learning writing is a platform for understanding and development of language structure, text and academic content. It gives students the opportunity to express themselves, and also to analyse and understand texts and concepts in detail.’
The session will focus on effective EAL strategies for teaching writing.
