This session will support teachers as they move from teaching units 1 and 2 of the new VCE English and EAL study design into preparation for units 3 and 4 in 2024.
The focus of the presentation will be on making connections between units 1-4, unpacking the requirements of the School-Assessed Coursework, and providing practical strategies to assist EAL teachers as they navigate the requirements of the new study.
